Could you survive a $145,420 OSHA bill? That’s the amount the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) penalized an Illinois transport firm in October 2014 for safety violations involving industrial vehicles. OSHA is out there, and they aren’t fooling around. Nor should you. It’s time to get your crew trained by the best in the business.
Workforce safety is imperative #1, and in addition to the primary risk of injury or even death, the failure to adequately train your workforce can lead to huge fines and costly work interruptions. Fortunately, Premier Platforms has flexible training programs that help your team avoid accidents and stay on the right side of the law.
Premier Aerial Lift Training
Premier Platforms is more than just the Southeast’s leading provider of rental aerial lifts and on-site repair. For years, we have also offered aerial lift lift training services that meet or exceed OSHA and ANSI/SIA standards. Training is right here on our premises, but if you prefer we can even come to you!
Pro Training on the Machines You Use
OSHA requires your employees to have aerial lift training, but there’s more to it than obtaining a course completion notice.
At Premier Platforms, we take pride in our reputation for reliable machines and industry-leading customer service, and our training programs are held to the same standard.
Our training goes far beyond popping in a video and turning off the lights. Our aerial lift training includes engaging lectures, scenario-based exercises, and Q&As with industry experts.
Oh, and did we forget to mention hands-on training on the actual operation of lifts? We have one of the largest fleets in the Southeast, a virtual playground of high-tech, labor-saving toys for grown-ups. So whether you’re looking to receive operational training on scissor lifts, boom lifts, forklifts, or all of the above, we have the equipment on location.
Premier Training Means Efficiency, Safety, and Cost Savings for You
By getting your workforce trained by our experts, they’ll be safer and more efficient in the yard or on your project site. They’ll also be in the clear in the event of inevitable visits by OSHA.
Training Items Covered
Our OSHA-accredited training includes, but is not limited to: Hazards associated with aerial lifts, such as falls, tip-overs, and shock hazards; explanations on correct operation, inspections, and electrical systems; swhat to check before operating a lift, such as fluid checks, wheels and tires, power charges, outriggers and stabilizers, and hydraulic and pneumatic systems.
Classes are approximately 2 hours per equipment type, and you can come to us or we’ll happily make arrangements to come to you. Just another way we strive to help you save time and keep projects running smoothly.
