Forklift Certification

Each year, tens of thousands of injuries related to powered industrial trucks, or forklifts, occur in U.S. workplaces. These accidents can be avoided. Operating a lift truck is an important job, so important that OSHA requires “only trained and authorized operators shall be permitted to operate a powered industrial truck.” This program will comply with the OSHA requirements for 29 CFR 1910.178-Powered Industrial Trucks.

  • Forklift Orientation
  • Prestart Inspections
  • Stability and Design
  • Proper Safety Procedures
  • Handling and Transporting Hazardous Materials
  • General Awareness of Various Federal Regulations

The workshop will be taught in English; translators are welcome. It will include lecture and performing a driving test with a provided forklift. Attendees must be at least 18 years old and have a valid driver’s license.
