Central Ohio Forklifts


At Central Ohio Forklifts, we put safety first with our comprehensive forklift operator and forklift Train the Trainer safety training programs. Our instructors will challenge your operators and trainers, to both ensure their competence and awaken them to the dangers of working on and around forklifts.  Our courses are aligned to OSHA’s forklift safety standards to ensure that your staff and your business are as compliant and as safe as possible. Our classes include site-specific and equipment-specific training, customized to your facility.
