We’re Here to Keep Your Team Performing Safely

We’re Here to Keep Your Team Performing Safely

We understand the importance of safety and productivity to your business.
That’s why over 75 years we’ve developed operator training courses that covers safety and basic fundamentals of operating forklifts, reach & stand-up trucks, and pallet jacks.
SCMH’s OSHA-endorsed training structure has been employed by hundreds of multi-national companies in Los Angeles and Orange County for nearly 30 years now. Our trainers’ extensive experience stems from hands-on operations of managing and working in warehouse environments.
Upon completion of our certification courses expect to have:
  • A better understanding of the CAL-OSHA and Federal -OSHA standards and laws
  • Learn the principles behind forklift operation
  • Knowledge of safety precautions and procedures
  • Basic application driving industrial powered trucks
