Following OSHA regulation 29, CFR 1910.178 Powered Industrial Truck Operator Training, your operators are required to successfully complete both classroom and hands-on training. Also included in our training programs are the following:
- Classroom discussions
- Video presentations
- Wallet cards
If you have not been certified in 3 years or more or ever, or you have been in a forklift related accident or infraction, you need to take a re-certification course. We offer re-certification courses for operators who have previously been certified, as well as full course for un-certified operators. When everyone is one board you can operate a safe and productive facility. It is not good enough for operators alone to understand these principles of safe forklift operation. It is important that those in charge also understand them in order to make sound judgement about when training is needed. Read about forklift refresher training on OSHA's eTool, HERE.
