Safety Training


Who is responsible for the safe operation of your facility?

The employer is responsible. This means that to reduce the health and safety risk involved in day to day operations, the employer should do everything in their power to provide their employees with a safe work environment reasonably free of any hazard to their health and safety.

How do you provide a safe work environment?

Go above and beyond required training for operating forklifts, aerial work platforms and electric powered hand trucks to arm your employees with the knowledge and skills needed to safely do their work, protecting themselves and others around them. Contact Atlantic Coast ToyotaLift today to have a conversation on how you can lower your risk of costly OSHA fines and avoidable incidents at your facility by training your workforce to be safe and productive.
