At ASU-Beebe, we strive provide standard industrial safety training and instruction for a broad range of workplace requirements. Our hands-on, direct engagement approach ensures satisfaction that the topic is covered thoroughly to improve worker safety.
The standard training classes provide instruction for typical and mandated safety requirements. Our standard instructional formats currently include classroom lectures, audio-visual presentations, simulations and practical assessments when applicable. The course overview below will provide a general summary of what is taught for each of the listed training events on our calendar.
Many of the manufacturing partners that we assist in our area have positions available that require forklift experience. This class is designed to provide the basic skills of operating a forklift through classroom instruction and by operating a forklift to determine practical understanding of the content taught during the class. There is a heavy emphasis on safety topics to promote responsible driving that can be applied in any situation. Some of the topics include a forklift equipment check, proper use of lifts, notifying pedestrians of your presence and how to properly assess weight distribution to load on elevated shelves.
