We take safety seriously. If you are operating equipment of any kind we believe you should be properly trained prior to doing so. Proper MEWP, telehandler, and forklift safety training will reduce accidents in the workplace, reduce personal injury, and reduce damage to products and the working environment. Our available training classes meet the highest safety standards and follow requirements from OSHA and ANSI.
So why should you invest in training?
Knowledgeable Instructors – Our curriculum has been developed by the most experienced operators. You can rest easy knowing that you are receiving training from someone who has actually used the equipment in an application similar to you.
Classes for All Learning Styles – We understand not everyone learns the same way. Some people prefer to read or listen to information. Some people need private, one-on-one training. Others thrive in a group classroom environment. The Lonestar Forklift operator training division can provide multiple options to satisfy these different learning styles.
Flexible Schedules – Not every work schedule allows for time off with short notice. We offer a variety of course styles that can be easily worked into your schedule.
Online Training Portal – The online training portal can be easily customized to fit your company’s branding to create a more personal training experience. This is also an easy way to manage your employee’s training history to ensure all safety training is up to date.

Motorized Pallet Jacks – A motorized pallet jack is a basic piece of equipment used to raise a heavy load a few inches off the ground and move it to another location.
