OSHA Training

Our OSHA training policy works off of a simple idea, “[That] employees who work in a safe environment feel valued and are inclined to want to produce a quality product, increase productivity, and make customers happy” (Edmund F. Kelly, Liberty Mutual). Often mandatory, workplace safety training programs are the cornerstone of a safe work environment. Programs such as Hazard Communication, Bloodborne Pathogens, and Emergency Procedures are typically required by many industries. What these workplaces may not realize, is that other topics are needed to provide education for employees so that they can work safely while also being productive.

When you hire M.R.S. you are guaranteed relevant and interesting OSHA training that is also interactive and fun, while ensuring that your employees receive up-to-date safety training by our expert instructors.

Training available in Spanish.

Forklift Training

Our expert safety program includes two different segments that will lead to you achieving your forklift certification: classroom theory and practical evaluation.

Classroom Theory:

  • Learn the proper OSHA safety regulation for operating your forklift; you’ll spend approximately 2 hours in the classroom understanding the safety behind operating an industrial powered fork truck, and the specific health and safety hazards of the workplace associated with powering your lift truck.


Practical Evaluation:

  • Learn the safe and efficient operation of your forklift while complying with OSHA regulations. Certification is done at your facility on your equipment, and all training and reviews are done on site and scheduled at your convenience (off shifts, weekends, whenever you like).

Successful completion of your forklift training will result in OSHA standard operation of your forklift, and certification of the completion of course.
