Hands-On Evaluation
To comply with the law and ensure that the operator has the ability to operate safely, each operator is required to pass a hands-on evaluation in the workplace on each truck type they will be assigned to operate.  The LiftSafe® method requires the operator to demonstrate proficiency in forklift operation in a manner that mirrors actual use in the workplace.  This requires approximately 10 to 20 minutes per operator, per truck, in a "one-on-one" training/evaluation session. Operators are scored on a 100 point system that requires 90 points or better to be certified.  The evaluation can be performed by LiftSafe® or the employer's designated person that has been trained in the evaluation process; contact us for details.

Loading Dock Safety
We examine your loading dock to determine if it is within compliance with OSHA and Cal/OSHA standards. An inspection will be made to confirm that the necessary equipment is available, such as, wheel chocks, bridge plates, and trailer support jacks.  If using electric forklifts, we ensure that charging equipment is installed properly and an eye wash station is present.
