Have your equipment operators had the safety training that is required by the State of Minnesota? MNOSHA Rule 5207.1000 requires that all operators undergo safety training before operating any mobile earth-moving equipment. That includes skid-steer loaders and compact excavators! Tri-State Bobcat can provide the training and materials that you need to comply with Minnesota OSHA regulations.

 Classes include effective instruction on basic operator safety and equipment operation, inspection and characteristics in accordance with applicable OSHA regulations and equipment manufacturers' guidance. Each student will receive classroom instruction (video & lecture), a safety test and hands-on equipment training. In addition, students will receive a operator training course book, safety manual, hand-outs, a certificate of completion and an operator's identification card. Upon successful completion of this course, students will have a basic understanding of how to safely operate the equipment.

Our training manager can assist you in developing a comprehensive equipment training program for all of your operators. We can customize classes to meet your specific company objectives or requirements. Additionally, we can provide training at any location in the Minneapolis / St. Paul metro area, on weekends and during evening hours. Remember, a properly trained operator will increase productivity, reduce maintenance costs and increase safety awareness.
