Hands On Forklift Training

Required: Written Evaluation, Operator Evaluation.
Powered industrial trucks are unique pieces of equipment and require specialized training. Untrained operators of forklifts, material handlers, and other type vehicles injure thousands of coworkers annually. OSHA requires employers to ensure each operator is competent to operate a forklift safely, as demonstrated by the successful completion of the training and evaluation specified in 29 CFR 1910.178.
29 CFR 1910.178
OSHA’s Powered Industrial Trucks Standard 29 CFR 1910.178 requires operators to receive OSHA forklift training. Fire Safe provides hands-on instructional forklift training required for a forklift license. Practical training is performed at either a partner’s designated location with their own equipment, or at a Fire Safe forklift training location. Completion of the course provides an operator their OSHA forklift certification and lift truck operator certification.
Fire Safe provides on-site live hands-on training with forklifts and other type equipment. The live forklift training is supported by traditional lecture, and a multimedia presentation. Students can ask questions at all phases of the forklift training, which allows for immediate evaluation and feedback for each student.
Fire Safe offers individual and group forklift safety training. Fire Safe can create lesson and education packages that directly support a specific facility. General managers and facility owners can stress forklift safety areas they want covered, especially in terms of their specific facility. Our instructors create lesson plans specific to a facility’s need.
