Forklift Training


Forklift Operator Training

Accidents involving powered industrial trucks (PITs) — including forklifts, lift trucks and man-ups — contribute to thousands of injuries in U.S. workplaces each year. To reduce the risk of accidents, OSHA’s Powered Industrial Trucks Standard requires operators to undergo stringent initial training, evaluation and certification, with a reevaluation every three years.


This program provides a holistic, hands-on approach to forklift training, consisting of onsite classroom and range training for both inexperienced and experienced operators.
