Frequently Asked Questions

Can I train and certify forklift operators using the trainer KIT and can someone from my company conduct the training?

Yes. According to OSHA standard for training of truck operators  29 CFR 1910.178(l) the requirements to conduct the training is that all training and evaluation MUST be conducted by persons with the necessary knowledge, training and experience to train powered industrial truck operators and evaluate their competence. Any employee with prior forklift experience selected by your company and with the knowledge of the location where the forklifts are operating can certify employees with our Train the Trainer Kit.

Does the Forklift Certification KIT meets OSHA requirements?
Yes, the KIT meets OSHA and Cal-OSHA requirements and can be used by any type of
company in the industry.

How long the Certification will last?
The certification will last for 3 years. You can renew the certification after 3 years using the same KIT and assuming the law hasn't change. OSHA does not require employers to have an outside organization to certify forklift operators. An employee evaluation of the skills necessary for forklift safety in your workplace is what OSHA requires before the employer signs that the employee is certified.

Our forklift train-the-trainer certification KIT provides all the tools and information that is required by OSHA regarding certifying an employee. The certification process is simple, yet a very important decision that will affect the health and safety of both the operator and pedestrian employees.

How do employees get certified?
Answer: Forklift certification is a three step simple process.

Step 1.
Forklift training: 2 types of training
       Formal forklift training
       Practical forklift training

Step 2. Evaluation
After the training, the employer must evaluate the employee's driving ability on the employers forklift.  The employer
must document this evaluation.  Just because an employee was evaluated driving a forklift, does not automatically
mean that they are certified.

Step 3. Certification
The employer must then certify that the employee may drive forklifts for that employer.  This is the easiest stage of
the process.  However; this is by far the most important issue for the employer.  If the employer certifies the employee, the employer is in essence certifying that the employer has provided the training outlined by OSHA and that the employee is competent to operate a power industrial truck.

Does the certification have an expiration date?
Yes, the certification expires three years from the date of the prior evaluation.  Once the employee is certified, the employer must re-evaluate the employee in the workplace every three years.
