Basic Forklift Operator

Basic Forklift Operator Course Schedule

12 hours

Powered industrial trucks, or forklifts, are an essential piece of equipment in many workplaces, but they account for more industrial accidents than any other type of equipment. This course provides an overview of basic forklift usage and strict safety guidelines, using both classroom instruction and hands-on sessions.

Topics include how to:

  • Basic safety operations, maintenance and OSHA compliance issues
  • Compliance with OSHA’s Powered Industrial Truck standard
  • Stacking strategies with consideration of trailers, ramps and elevators

Upon successful completion of the course, students will know how to safely operate a sit-down forklift and will receive a National Safety Council Certificate of Completion.*

*Site-specific and equipment-specific training must still be provided by employers to meet OSHA certification.
