Who Needs Forklift Training?

According to OSHA, any person who operates a forklift at work must receive proper forklift training. This includes new operators and may also include operators who are experienced. Free forklift training can help to satisfy these training requirements.

Moreover, refresher forklift training is required by OSHA in many cases. For example, if you’re involved in a forklift incident as an operator, you will be required to complete refresher training. You’ll also need to take refresher training if you’re observed operating a forklift in an unsafe manner.

Additionally, in some jurisdictions and according to some standards, forklift operators need to take re-certification training regularly. For example, the CSA B335 Safety Standard for Lift Trucks requires that operators are re-certified every three years. This is regardless of whether they’ve been in an accident or were observed operating their equipment in an unsafe manner.
