SEPTEMBER 2014 – BELLEVILLE, ONTARIO – Getting behind the wheel of any vehicle has the potential for serious injury. Two new programs have been released to help educate employees on the safe operation of motor vehicles and forklifts.

Safe Driving – Take Control provides tips that will help you and your employees drive safely. The program explains how to prepare a vehicle for safe driving and how to conduct a pre-drive inspection. It describes how to eliminate distractions and provides tips you can apply to stay safe when driving in challenging driving conditions.

Forklift Case History shows employees what can happen when they don’t follow the proper procedures. Employees will benefit from the lessons learned from a real-life tragedy. An interview with the victim’s parents adds emotional appeal. Specifically, this program looks at how to prepare to lift a load and how to protect workers when using a forklift to load and unload flatbed trucks.

These programs are available in DVD and streaming media formats. Additional information is available by calling Electrolab Training Systems at 1-800-267-7482 or emailing safety@electrolab.ca
