Lift Truck Operator Program

OSHA requires Forklift Operators to be certified!

The Lift Truck Operator Training, OSHA standard CFR 1910.178, is a comprehensive one-day course, incorporating classroom and hands-on training, designed for both new and experienced lift truck operators. For experienced operators, this course helps fine-tune your operating skills and refresh your understanding of safe operating procedures.

Utilizing the highly acclaimed "Coaching" method of non-lecture teaching, this information-packed classroom course encourages participants to observe, analyze and discuss recommended safety practices.

Upon passing the practical forklift test and successful completion of the course, participants receive a wallet-sized certificate of completion indicating that they have received formal instruction in Lift truck Operation. It is recommended that the participant is further evaluated and documented by a competent evaluator at his/her workplace using job site specific lift truck/forklift.
