Congratulations are in order to Earl’s Organic Operations team for successfully completing pallet jack and forklift training! Employees received a certificate upon completion. Pablo Ruiz, Food Safety Manager, trained the Operations team in safety rules and regulations including an intense driving training program on an obstacle course in the Earl’s parking lot.  The training also included audio visual instructions, a written test and hands on training.

Dane Young recently joined Earl’s Organic from the retail side of the business. Now he works in the middle of the night and when most people are sleeping Earl’s is busy with forklifts and pallet jacks moving heavy pallets of produce off of trucks from the growers into the warehouse or loading produce from the warehouse to trucks delivering to retailers from Arcata to Santa Cruz.  He was most surprised at the volume of product moved at Earl’s warehouse compared to the retail side.  The large pallets need to be moved around by pallet jacks and forklifts because they are so heavy.  “It is important that Earl’s Organic warehouse workers know how to use heavy machinery.”  Dane feels confident that Earl’s training course provided him with the necessary information and hands on training he needed to be a safe and skilled equipment operator.
