Forklift Training

Required for OSHA Compliance

The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 includes a provision that states, “only trained and authorized operators will be permitted to operate a powered industrial truck.” The 1-2 hour online forklift evaluation training course will allow you to become a certified forklift operator in compliance with OSHA laws.

More than 100,000 injuries involving forklifts are reported annually, and on average, 100 workers their lives.

OSHA can impose a $7,000 fine for each untrained operator (up to $70,000 fine for willful violations). It is mandatory that all forklift operators be trained.

Our Certification Course

Under Federal law, all persons who operate a forklift must be:

  • Over the age of 18 years old; AND
  • Sufficiently trained and certified to operate a forklift.

Code 29 CFR 1910.178 of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) federal standards outlines guidelines for safety precautions that must be taken for safely operating powered industrial vehicles and other forklift devices. That’s where Forklift Certification Institute comes in with its affordable and effective Forklift Operator Certification Programs. Passing Forklift Certification Institute’s Forklift Operator Exam will provide you with the certification you need to be in compliance with relevant federal standards - you must also complete hands-on training at your employer per their requirements. This can be provided by your designated trainer.

Both our certification and recertification services provide users with the information and resources required to safely and successfully operate forklifts - if a student is not sufficiently trained in operating a forklift, hands-on training must be completed at their place of employment. Even better is that both certification and recertification courses can be purchased and completed entirely online. We always recommend additional hands-on training on how to operate a forklift safely. Our program is 100% online and offers the didactic training. However, there is never a true replacement for hands-on skills. As long as you have Internet access, our online training guides and final Forklift Operator Certification Exam can be completed with ease from a computer and/or tablet. Gone are the days of attending boring and expensive in-class forklift operator certification courses. Simply complete our didactic training online, test your practical hands-on skills at your place of employment, and you are good to go. Now you can earn the forklift certification you deserve, for cheap, on your own time.
