Forklift Operator Safety Training

Operator Safety Training

Is safety important to you and your business? Bugle Forklift Sales & Rentals Ltd. is proud to offer the Lift Truck (Forklift) Operator Safety Course through the Alberta Safety Council.  This one day course is designed to help the operator be more aware of safe operating practices while operating any type of lift truck, and consists of both classroom instruction and a hands-on practical portion. Each participant will be required to demonstrate his/her knowledge and skills while operating a motorized lift truck, and once completed and approved certification is offered by the Alberta Safety Council and is valid for 3 years.

For your convenience we also offer onsite training at your location (minimum charges apply).  Please call 403-814-0918 or email [email protected] for more information.

Requirements: Participants must have some experience operating a lift truck, or an employer willing to provide some forklift operating time, prior to enrolment, as this course is not a DRIVER training course.

Rates: $175.00 per person for a single registration or $160.00 per person for multiple registrations.
