Did you know that the two most common ways in which workers are killed or injured on Skid Steers are from being crushed by moving parts or rollover accidents? What both of these types of injuries have in common are that they are both extremely preventable in nature. OSHA recommends that in order to avoid these types of preventable injuries, companies should take steps such as training and education in order to keep their employees ready and aware of all possible hazards. Having an untrained workforce exposes your employees to numerous hazards, and leaves you as the employer exposed to OSHA fines and possible litigation. Our Skid Steer training course will help to better educate your employees on how to properly operate the Skid Steer and ways to prevent the two most common hazards related to Skid Steer work: Roll over and Moving parts.
