Industry leaders for forklift training in Ontario

Sunita Pidair 
Founder of WORK SAFE Training

WORK SAFE has been built on a foundation of passion. Passion to improve the lives of others and make the world a better place. As a marketing and advertising executive, Pidair felt locked behind a desk with the inability to really make a difference in people’s lives. 

After being introduced to the Forklift Training industry, which is often overlooked for its seriousness of safety and the importance of quality of training, she immediately discovered a need for change.
Pidair’s mission became to provide a place where forklift operators could receive quality training with the safety of the operators as it's top priority and combine the opportunity to secure employment for each individual. The journey began with a simple premise – for WORK SAFE Training to be your friend at work and to create safer work environments for all. 

Helping others has always been my life’s focus and through WORK SAFE I have extended my passion to work with women’s shelters and those with mental and physical disabilities. I have the opportunity to take something I have created and turn my training centers into places that provide real sustainable economic opportunities for everyone.” 
Sunita Pidair, Founder

Over a decade later, WORK SAFE Training has evolved into a staple for safe, trusted professional forklift training. WORK SAFE has now expanded into 2 locations, Scarborough and Mississauga, as well as offering Onsite Training for company clients. Pidair looks towards the future of  WORK SAFE training with a focus on innovation and creating opportunities for learning even more inclusive and accessible for all.

We Succeed Through Our Students

WORK SAFE Training was established as there was a need for reputable Forklift Training Centres in the General Toronto Area that care about the physical well-being and success of individuals working as Forklift Operators. Operators were simply not receiving adequate training or assistance in obtaining suitable employment. They were be setting up to fail or even worse get injured themselves or injure co-workers. The solution was to

Build a Training Facility that was based on the success of the student. Work for them, and not the other way around.

WORK SAFE Training took on this challenge and opened their first training facility over a decade ago in Scarborough, ON. The development of Forklift Operator Training Programs with no time limits  (at no extra charge), allowing the student to receive as much training as required in order for them to feel confident, not just pass their program. The instructor to student ratio is low, providing each student with the ability to engage with their trainer.  These programs are offered at cost-effective rates so that it would be affordable for the average person wanting to upgrade their skills.

Not only did WORK SAFE Training create and offer Forklift Operator Training programs with various levels to adapt to different skills abilities, but a free Job Assistance Program was also developed to connect the student with potential employers. This was important because the goal was to help people utilize their skills and obtain gainful employment. Some students would be working within days sometimes within hours of program completion.

Within 5 years, another WORK SAFE Training Forklift Facility was opened in Mississauga, ON.  Today, programs are offered all over southern Ontario at company locations as well.
