Course Description
 

OSHA does require that every forklift operator be trained and certified to operate the powered industrial truck in the workplace and that the operator’s performance be evaluated every three years. It may come as a surprise, but OSHA actually does not certify workers who have successfully completed forklift training programs. Instead, the responsibility for forklift training and certification falls solely on the employer. Forklift operator training and certification are essential to ensure a safe, compliant work environment.

 

The most common violations for general industry:

  1. 178(l)(1)(i) – Operator not properly trained (initial)
  2. 178(l)(4)(i) – Operator not properly trained (refresher training)
  3. 178(l)(6) – Not keeping a safe distance from the edge of the platform
  4. 178(p)(1) – Not taking defective truck out-of-operation

1910.178(q)(7) – Failing to properly inspect forklift before the operation
