Forklift Training with IVES
The IVES Training Group has achieved national recognition as a leader in powered mobile equipment training. Our success is attributed to our philosophy that there is only one way to prevent industrial equipment-related injuries or deaths along with the associated costs of decreased productivity, downtime and damage… that is to train right the first time – thoroughly, efficiently and professionally
We believe when safety is at stake there is no room for compromise. IVES maintains the highest standard of accuracy, quality, and professionalism in all our training programs and materials. Trainees must not only learn safety theory, they must understand the logic behind it. Trainees need to believe in the philosophy before they will put their knowledge to use. They need to learn not only “WHAT” to do, but also be shown “HOW” to do it and, most importantly, “WHY” it must be done.
