New Forklift Safety Training Video Designed To Reduce On-The-Job Injuries
(Austin, Texas) April 13, 2010 - The Workplace Safety Store, a leading distributor of workplace safety and regulatory compliance training products announces the release of a new workshop-style Forklift Safety Training DVD (http://safety.1800inet.com/forklift-workshop-dvd-training), which has been specifically created to help reduce avoidable on the job forklift operator injuries.
Forklift accidents are an all-too common workplace occurrence; in fact, according to the Occupational Health and Safety Administration, there are tens of thousands of injuries related to powered industrial trucks, otherwise known as forklifts, every year.
“Proper training can help reduce avoidable accidents and injuries, ”according to Robin Watson of The Workplace Safety Store. “That’s why we are making available this new work-shop style training on our DVD training kit. We find it to be the most effective method of forklift operator training. This will show operators how to safely operate forklifts, resulting in less accidents on the job.”
According to the OSHA website, the majority of forklift related injuries can be attributed to lack of safe operating procedures and insufficient or inadequate training.
That won’t be a problem for people who use The Workplace Safety Store’s new DVDs. The “workshop-style” training approach featured in the DVDs provides activity-based “how-to” training for operators. “It’s well-known that hands-on interaction makes training more effective,” Watson said.
In addition to the videos and the training exercises, the program features tools that can be used to show operators proper operating and safety procedures and then allow them to demonstrate what they’ve learned -- a perfect opportunity to identify and address problem areas in a safe and controlled environment.
The product can help companies save on training costs and provide auditable training records, reduce direct losses due to accidents, injuries, and damage to warehouse/merchandise, and reduce indirect costs, including insurance premiums and fines.
The Forklift Workshop - DVD Training Kit meets the full requirements of OSHA’s 29 CFR Section 1910.178(l) standard for forklift operation and training. This is important for those looking for OSHA forklift training that will legally comply with OSHA’s strict standards.
