MEWPs, forklifts and other heavy equipment are an occupational essential for many businesses. They also pose inherent risks for the people who operate them. That’s why training your employees on the safe use of industrial equipment is the best investment you can make in your workforce.
UNlike our competitors that offer Safety Training as a perk, we do not manufacture, sell or rent industrial equipment.
When you call us, our only focus is what we do, keeping your employees 100% safe and your company free of Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) fines which could easily bankrupt your business’ finances and reputation.
As a federally certified Women-Owned Small Businesses (WOSB), Safety Training Group USA provides safety training to manufacturers, plants, warehouses, construction sites and companies located in Northeast Ohio.
Did you know employees can’t be fined by OSHA for safety violations? Employers are responsible for providing a safe and healthy work environment that follows OSHA standards.
Fines, coupled with unexpected workers’ compensation and medical expenses, time involved in investigating and writing up reports, increased insurance costs, lost productivity, absenteeism and potential litigation, can easily a cripple a business.
No one expects not to return home at the end of a workday because of a serious accident. From falls to crush injuries, industrial equipment operation can be incredibly dangerous if an operator isn't properly trained.
In 2020, 4,764 workers died on the job. People working in transportation and material moving occupations and construction and extraction occupations accounted for nearly half of all fatal workplace injuries.
A study published in 2020 cited the cost of nonfatal workplace injuries at approximately 11 lost workdays and a value of $1,560 per person per year in the United States.
Safety Training Group USA will train your operators on best practices which can reduce injuries and save lives.
We provide training on:
OSHA requires employers to train operators on safe operation of mobile elevated work platforms and powered industrial trucks and the hazards created when using these vehicles.
Trained operators must know how to do the job properly and safely as demonstrated by a workplace evaluation. That’s where we can help! Our experienced instructors:
In addition to training, we offer onsite safety consultations to help you mitigate risks and ensure your emergency evacuation and hazardous materials plans, safety records and accident reports are all up-to-date and in compliance with OSHA standards.
Accidents can lead to machinery being taken out of service, costly repairs and downtime at worksites. When workers are properly trained, they are more confident in their skills, leading to better working conditions and higher productivity levels. Another benefit of safety training is reduced premiums for worker’s compensation coverage.
All training provided by Safety Training Group USA complies with current OSHA federal and state operator training regulations and America National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards.
Truck-related topics covered in our training include:
MEWP accidents are most commonly a result of an operator’s lack of training and experience, mechanical faults and not following safety procedures when working at heights. Some of the biggest hazards operators can encounter are entrapment, overturning, falling and collision with people, overhead cables or other vehicles. MEWP training standards require certification for workers who are near a MEWP on the job site, including supervisors, occupants and operators.
