Team Safety Program

The Equipment Source is committed to providing all employees with a safe and healthy working environment. Towards this end, we comply with all applicable state and federal codes and regulations. Such regulations include those promulgated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), such as maintaining a current OSHA 300 log detailing employees’ job-related injuries and providing a workplace free of recognizable safety hazards.

The Equipment Source has implemented a safety management program. This program streamlines our safety operations and educates each location and staff member about practices to prevent safety incidents.

As part of our program, our employees must complete safety training during the onboarding process and renew their training every year following.

  • Meets the regulatory compliance guidelines of OSHA, DOT, MSHA, and EPA
  • Provides updated online safety training, including hazard identification and correction
  • Leverages industry-leading established safety policies and procedures
  • Includes safety accident investigation procedures
  • Measures safety management program goals

Safety & Equipment Training

If your equipment operators need Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and American National Standards Institute (ANSI) certification, The Equipment Source can help. For most industrial operations, forklift operators or powered industrial lift truck operators must be certified according to OSHA/ANSI standards. These certifications ensure that forklift operators can do their jobs safely and efficiently. Securing the necessary OSHA/ANSI certification is a two-step process, and The Equipment Source can help with both steps:

  1. The first step of the certification process consists of classroom-style training and testing. This step can be conducted online or in person. For the online option, The Equipment Source offers access cards for Genie and JLG Forklift Certification classes. These cards include codes that allow holders to view a full series of pre-recorded lessons at any convenient time. (The lessons are designed to take up most of a full working day but can be viewed separately.) For the in-person option, The Equipment Source offers comprehensive training and testing on its own premises. These lessons take place in a classroom setting and are carried out over a period of several hours. We can organize training and testing sessions for a single operator or for groups of up to 15 operators at a time, and we can schedule classes at whatever time is most convenient – during weekday, weekend, or evening hours.
  2. The second step of the certification process consists of hands-on evaluation by an employee of The Equipment Source who has the experience, training, and knowledge needed to train and evaluate forklift operators and assess their competence.

Drug & Alcohol Screening

The Equipment Source utilizes a drug and alcohol testing program to further monitor and maintain safety levels. All workers are subject to pre‑employment testing and subsequent random testing throughout employment. In addition, if reasonable suspicion of drug or alcohol use or intoxication on the job is established, then further drug and alcohol screening is mandatory. All supervisors and management are trained on signs of substance use on the job and how to handle reasonable suspicion.

If an accident is reported, the relevant workers will be required to submit to further drug and alcohol screening. Although this testing is required by DOT for specially licensed drivers, our entire company participates to include owners, management, and office staff.

Weapons (other than tools required for the performance of work) are not allowed in company vehicles, in company equipment, or in the possession of workers on site.
