Forklift Training and Certification

Forklift training is very important for workers operating powered industrial trucks or forklifts. There are approximately 100 fatalities and over 36,000 serious injuries that occur on or around forklifts every year.

Proper forklift training and certification can not only help save a workers life and prevent serious injury, it also increases the average income for the certificate holder when compared to those that do not have proper training and certification.

This online forklift safety course is designed for those individuals operating fork trucks, platform lift trucks, motorized hand trucks, and other specialized industrial trucks powered by electric motors or internal combustion engines.  These vehicles are powerful pieces of machinery and OSHA requires each operator to be properly trained in their safe operation.

This course has been developed from the OSHA standard for forklift safety, 29 CFR 1910.178.  Upon completion, you will receive a forklift training certificate listing the OSHA standard covered.  The 100% online course is completely self-paced, fully narrated with photos, video, interactivity, and testing.  It is packed with valuable information and is designed to maximize your retention of that information.

Please note: This course does not provide a license to operate a forklift, this would necessitate physical, hands-on instruction.  This course is designed to provide an understanding of forklift safety, based on the OSHA standard.

Did you know that OSHA requires a competent person be present on every job site?  If you are a supervisor or would like to get forklift training that includes the duties and responsibilities of a competent person on a forklift job site, we also offer a Forklift Safety for the Competent Person Course.
