Why train operators?

#1 To reduce accidents.
Forklifts are not automobiles.  They steer and brake differently, and with a load may weigh five times as much as a car.  Proper training can help reduce costly and sometimes fatal accidents.

#2 Meet OSHA Requirements. 
Avoid fines by complying with The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Section 1910.178 (l) (1) (i)
