    Operator training: reduce the risk of injuries and accidents

    OSHA (US Occupational Safety and Health Administration) requires* that all lift truck operators receive the proper training and certification to help ensure they can safely operate a lift truck.

    Your local Yale® dealer can provide complete and professional operator training instruction with the award-winning  Handle with Care operator training program. Unlike third party training organizations that know very little about lift trucks , Yale® has been committed to developing and delivering professional lift truck operator training for almost 40 years.
