Safety Officer Conducts Forklift Training
The Risk Management Office conducted forklift training on 23-25 June 2015. Training consisted of classroom lecture and discussion, a written examination, and a practical demonstration on various forklifts that are used to do work in multiple locations throughout the City. Employees were evaluated during vehicle inspections, and while navigating through a confidence course. Participants included employees from the Waste Water Treatment Plant, Gas Department, Joint Utilities Warehouse, and Solid Waste Department. OSHA requires all forklift operators to be evaluated every 3 years to demonstrate proficiency.
