Forklift Certification Training is found in 29 CFR 1910.178.
This regulation requires all operators of a forklift must be
trained and certificate issued to verify their training.
Each company is responsible for insuring on the job safety
when it comes to operating a forklift. Due to the increased
risks when picking up a load, transporting or moving a load
or simply using the forklift to assist in other tasks, it is
important that each operator completes the required
certification. However, Forklift training should only be a
part of your over-all plan to reduce work related injuries
and property damage.
Whether you are a brand new operator or the most seasoned
operator it is an OSHA requirement that you are certified!
