Forklift Operator Training Courses

 Operator Training OSHA requires that all persons who have the occasion to use any powered (Battery or Internal Combustion Engine) materials handling equipment must be   certified before they can use this equipment and then recertified at least every three (3) years thereafter. Additional training is required if any person has an accident or is observed to operate this equipment in an unsafe manner. OSHA has levied substantial fines for companies that fail to train operators, fail to perform the required inspections for each shift, and for failing to document that training and inspections have been performed.
