Safety Begins with Training
Training optimizes safety
Training is about more than optimizing productivity and minimizing downtime. Learning from qualified instructors prepares operators to make the right decisions when stakes are high. As you evaluate your own training processes, consider developing a program that includes:
  • Structured instruction that mixes classroom and hands-on learning
  • An in-house certified trainer who oversees ongoing best practices
  • Periodic training refreshers through mobile or remote learning
  • The development and maintenance of a safety-first culture of accountability
With effective training as your backbone, your team can reach peak performance without sacrificing safety.

Enhance your training with JLG courses and tools today.

Ladders might be simple and easy to use, but their instability in small work areas can make working at height a hazard for your team. Low-level access solutions are versatile and efficient, giving your team an easier way to work at height with materials and tools.
