Safety Council Forklift Operator Training Meets OSHA Requirements

Forklift Training Certification

For Class Dates Refer to Course Calendar.

It is an OSHA requirement to train anyone who operates a powered industrial tuck.  This requirement applies whether they operate the truck daily or once a year, regardless of the amount of their experience.  All forklift operators must be evaluated for competency every three years.  It is a violation of federal law for anyone to operate a forklift who is not properly trained and certified.  Operator training is required if:

  • Any type of accident or near-miss occurs
  • When any new material handling equipment is introduced
  • If any unsafe operating procedures have been observed
  • Two or three years have passed in which there are no operational or equipment changes or near-misses.
  • New rules require that traiing is specific to equipment you operate and specific to conditions under which the equipment is operated – site specific.  This course meets 29CFR 1910.178 standards.
