Yale's free online game to promote forklift safety.
An online game, operator training programs and posters are among the new workplace safety resources being offered by leading North American forklift manufacturer, Yale Materials Handling Corp (YMHC).

YMHC president Don Chance says the training and support services will complement companies’ existing safety programs. "[They also] provide unique and interactive ways to learn about product and workplace safety."

The online game, "For the Long Run", available free at,
tasks users with navigating a warehouse using a Yale Veracitor VX or NR-EA forklift. Players operate at three different levels, moving product on pallets through a warehouse and into a truck.

YMHC is also offering operator training that meets OSHA standards and policies at customer locations. Over 30,000 people in North America have been trained through the program, which Yale says reflects ITA recommendations and suggestions by trainers and safety directors.

An educational wall poster that provides an overview of safety do’s and don’ts for the workplace is also available free.
