OSHA Forklift Certification

We offer same day OSHA Forklift Certification Training at your location or at one of our training centers. Forklifts are used in many different types of businesses, from manufacturing plants and lumber yards, to distribution centers for big box retailers and online merchandising sites. Operators who complete our OSHA certified forklift course will be able to operate Class C Forklifts. OSHA certification protects against heavy fines and potential liability. When properly trained, operators will no longer guess about the best approach, balance and moving up load. To become even more employable many of our students schedule their forklift training immediately after passing their CDL road test.

Benefits of certified training include: less company liability, lower maintenance costs, reduced material damage, increased efficiency and fewer near-miss accidents (or more serious accidents).

Trucking companies see hiring a driver that is OSHA certified to operate a Forklift as a huge plus.  This can allow you to load your own truck load which cuts down on potential costs for the company.  This also allows you to potentially work in the warehouse when delivery orders are slow.  This all equals better JOB SECURITY.

No you do not but if you do not know how to operate a moving vehicle you should expect additional practice to be able to become a safe OSHA forklift operator.

Every Saturday at 10am at our Long Island City Training Center.

Typically a 40 hour course would combine variations of the below elements. Can also be customized & combined for training and certification on multiple types of industrial equipment to meet your specific training & certification needs.

This is normally taken by people who are totally new to operating a specific type of industrial equipment and who need a complete course in using one, as well as people who will operate the equipment under adverse or unique circumstances that call for specialized training. These are often labelled as “complete” courses by our training advisors.

This is for people who already have some experience operating the specific equipment type, but perhaps are not as well-informed about the principles of safe operating practices, such as: loading and unloading, different ways to maneuver it, or some of the different safety principles and who either want more time on both the theory and/or practical aspects of safe operations. This course is intended for: new operators, refresher course or to be re-certified.

This is normally taken as either a refresher course or in order to facilitate the skills testing of an already very experienced operator, who perhaps simply wants to become certified.
