Forklift Training for Lift Truck Operators



Forklift360™ is a free, virtual reality training tool designed to illustrate potential operator safety risks as part of your forklift training program. (Click and drag the video above to get the full 3-D experience.)

Use the Forklift360™ training video during lift truck operator training. You “drive,” and your whole group can interact with it, or you can use it one on one to help sharpen safety awareness. Forklift360 was co-developed by BIGLOOK360 and the National Safety Council to support lift truck operational safety at any job site that uses forklifts.

Forklift operation is a 360-degree job. OSHA estimates 35,000 serious injuries and 62,000 non-serious injuries involving forklifts occur annually. Make sure your drivers have the skills they need to stay safe.
