Per OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), it is a violation of Federal law for anyone under 18 years of age to operate a forklift or for anyone over 18 years of age who is not properly trained and certified to do so.
We offer two training classes: a Move Safe Operator Training class that will certify your lift truck operators on the equipment they will be using, and a Train the Trainer class that will provide your in-house trainers with the necessary knowledge to competently and safely train your operators. We can provide the Move Safe Operator Training class at your facility or ours, but each operator must be trained on the specific type of equipment that they will be using. Additionally, the Train the Trainer class is only valid if completed at the facility at which your trainer will be training your operators.
Trainers and operators, note that your certification is site specific. If you move to a different company or location, you must complete another Train the Trainer or Move Safe Operator Training for your new work site. Move Safe Operator Training certifies you for three years. After three years, you must complete the class again in order to be certified. Additionally, we recommend that you complete a Train the Trainer at least every three years, if not annually, in order to stay abreast of changing forklift technology and legal requirements.
