Talisman Rentals reiterates safety all of the time, in all of our conversations and interactions with our employees. It starts as soon as a new employee comes on board. New employees undergo a two-day training course about proper procedures, including how to operate equipment, what to inspect and an all-over familiarization of the equipment. The education continues with regularly scheduled training. All of the staff members were trained recently in the new American National Standards Institute’s guidelines for mobile elevating work platforms.Read More →
