ALI’s Online Lift Safety Training Course Now Available
Jan. 20, 2014—The Automotive Lift Institute’s (ALI) new online lift safety training course is now live, the organization announced Friday.
The online version of ALI’s “Lifting it Right” vehicle lift safety training course—”Lifting It Right: 2014 Online Edition”—adapts material from the DVD version into a Web-based, interactive format. The training curriculum covers lift types, lifting and lowering processes, and lift maintenance.
The information presented applies to lift operators at dealerships, independent shops, government agencies, vocational schools, and other facilities.
“With health and safety officials increasing their focus on vehicle service providers throughout North America, it is crucial that members of the service and repair industry take ownership of safety issues and embrace a proactive approach to accident prevention,” said R.W. O’Gorman, president of ALI. “Safety materials developed by ALI, such as this this training program, allow employers to take a leadership role in service bay safety instead of simply reacting to penalty-based enforcement programs.”
Those who complete the course, which guides users through real-world scenarios and different lift types, are awarded a certificate of completion.
The new course can be viewed on the ALI website. The program costs $29.
