  • OSHA Forklift Certification Process

  • OSHA requires that all operators of industrial lift trucks be trained and certified in the use of their equipment before being allowed to operate it as part of their job. The certification process can be grouped into three main categories.

  • training lecture

    1) Formal Lecture

    Background information, such as equipment type, workplace hazards, and general safety requirements, is delivered through a classroom or web-based training course.

  • training demonstration

    2) Practical Demonstration

    Practical exercises are completed as the operator is on the forklift while the trainer provides hands-on instruction.

  • training evaluation

    3) Operator Evaluation

    Trainer will assess how well the forklift operator performs in a variety of applications and situations related to his or her workplace.

Once the initial certification is completed, employers are required to train and evaluate all of their operators at least once every three years. A training course can also be provided at any time if operators do not meet performance standards.
