Forklift Certification Training

  • Class Type: Business and Industry
  • Location: Columbus
  • Start Date: June 29, 2021
  • Time: 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.

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 CFR1910.178-Powered Industrial Trucks.

Topics of discussion will include:

  • 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 and will include lecture and hands-on driving experience. Students will perform a driving test using a provided forklift. They must be at least 18 years old and have a valid driver's license.

The registration deadline is June 22; however, class size is limited so early registration is encouraged to reserve a seat.
