Comments from Participants:
Without exception, my staff felt that the seminar was an excellent 'hands-on' experience. They are now better prepared to deal with forklift safety hazards, along with related issues employers and equipment operators must address, in a very practical manner. -- Bob Fink, then-Area Director, Region III, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania Area Office, USDOL-OSHA
The powered industrial truck engineers presented the information in a knowledgeable and interesting way to senior safety personnel. The industrial trucks demonstrations enhanced the classroom presentations and provided a more complete safety requirements picture. -- Gwen Cooper, Industrial Hygienist, Region IV, Tampa, Florida Area Office, USDOL-OSHA.
