POLICY: Forklift Safety Training
PURPOSE: To ensure all forklift operators have a good working knowledge of the safety rules that apply to the operation of a forklift.

operating a forklift. This includes subcontractor’s employees who have not already been licensed by another source.

4. The forklift operator’s daily equipment check-list is to be maintained on-site.
5. A list of all authorized forklift operators is to be posted on the project bulletin board and a copy is to be sent to the corporate office as employees are added.
