The National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association (NLBMDA) the launched a new online option of its “Forklift and You” training course. The program was developed to help those in the industry comply with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations governing powered industrial truck safety.

Trainees will receive forklift training with the purchase of an individual course license. For a limited time only the training course is available to NLBMDA members at an introductory rate of $25.

“The lumber and building material industry is required to train their forklift operators initially and then every three years to comply with OSHA standards,” says NLBMDA chair Chris Yenrick. “NLBMDA is now making the training process that much easier for LBM dealers by providing a new interactive online program. The Online Forklift & You training course takes the printed version and introduces it to the Internet age.”
