Forklift Operator Safety Training


Forklift operator safety training and forklift certification promote forklift safety in an interactive and exciting format that meets Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards. Not meeting these standards may result in fines for the company. According to the Department of Labor training requirement found in 29 CFR 1910.178, people operating powered industrial trucks (including powered pallet jacks and forklifts) are required to be certified for use, inspection, testing and maintenance. Training must include both classroom instruction along with practical training. KELMAR Safety, Inc. trains on-site for your company. Our training program addresses all OSHA requirements for training.

Some of the topics covered in KELMAR Safety, Inc forklift training program include:

  • Operating instructions, warnings and precautions
  • Truck controls and instrumentation
  • Engine or motor operation
  • Steering and maneuvering
  • Fork and attachment adaptation, operation and use limitations
  • Vehicle inspection and maintenance
  • Operating limitations
  • Workplace-related topics
  • Ramps and other sloped surfaces that could affect vehicle stability
  • Unique or potentially hazardous workplace environmental conditions affecting safe operation

Operators need to be evaluated at least once every three years to ensure skills remain high. OSHA does not require training that is duplicative of other trainings employees have previously received and where the operator is evaluated as being competent. Therefore, KELMAR Safety, Inc. tailors its trainings to meet your employees’ needs.
