Greenville, North Carolina – Hyster-Yale Group is offering free lift truck operator training video content. The giveaway offer is meant to help businesses adhere to current health and safety protocols as they onboard the necessary labour to keep operations moving as the economy reopens.

The videos are available at no cost for a limited time through the company’s Yale and Hyster brands. The content covers characteristics of class I-V lift trucks, operating environment considerations, requirements of OSHA 1910.178 and safe operating practices.

“Essential supply chains need to get new lift truck operators up and running fast, while adhering to both OSHA training mandates and social distancing protocols,” says Evelyn Velasquez-Cuevas, product sales and technical training manager.

“Our goal is to provide access to training resources for safe, productive lift truck operation and help businesses respond to the effects of Covid-19.”

Businesses can also work through the Hyster and Yale dealer network to get checklists and expert advice on how to use the videos in OSHA-compliant lift truck training programs, including what additional instruction must be provided for operators to be fully certified. The videos are part of the Yale Handle with Care and Hyster Best-in-Class operator training programs.

Employers can access the videos by visiting Hyster.com and Yale.com.
