One of the best features of a forklift is probably how easy it is to use. This is astounding when you consider the work that goes into making one and all the things it can do. Companies all over Canada rely on forklifts to help them:
- Keep employees safe
- Lift and move heavy or cumbersome objects
- Unload inventory from trucks quickly
- Retrieve equipment or supplies located high up
And yet, for the most part, using a forklift is even easier than driving a car.
That being said, this doesn’t mean anyone can just get behind the wheel and start driving a forklift around. There’s definitely a misconception that you need some kind of forklift license in Toronto in order to operate one. While this isn’t the case, it is true that the law mandates any forklift operators undergo proper training.
It’s for the best, of course. While they’re easy to use, this also means mistakes can be easily made too. The last thing you want to do is make a mistake with a machine that big and fast when employees or inventory is nearby. Someone could become seriously injured or killed.
At Ri-Go Lift, we know a thing or two about forklifts. We better; we’ve been in the business of selling and renting forklifts and other large pieces of machinery and equipment since 1977. This means we can also train people to properly operate a forklift and do so in compliance with the law (though, again, there is no actual Toronto forklift license). So if you or your employees need to undergo training, give us a call today at 1-800-263-7580 and let’s schedule your courses. We can also rent you a forklift or sell you a forklift afterwards at a competitive price should you need it.
