Forklift Training

WHO SHOULD ENROLL IN FORKLIFT OPERATORS SAFETY TRAINING?

Employers are required to show documented evidence of their staff’s regular safety training and competency in forklift operation.

Staff operating Class 1 through 6 must be competent to operate a powered industrial truck safely, as it applies specifically to their job.

Refresher training should be provided when staff are operating the vehicle unsafely, have been involved in an accident or near miss, have been assigned a different type of truck, or conditions in the workplace change that could affect the safe operation of their vehicle.

We provide training with your equipment at your facility. A minimum group size is required.

CERTIFICATION

Forklift training is required as per Occupational health and safety legislation in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. The applicable legislation in Alberta is OH&S part 19—Powered Mobile Equipment.

The recognized standard for CSA across Canada for Forklifts is CSA Standard B335-04; for OH&S and OSHA in the US, certification and recertification of forklift operators for Class 1 through is required.

3-year certification

The employer is provided with an Operator competency report with recommendations for improvements. A diploma and wallet-sized operator permit card will be presented to those participants completing the safety training program.

PRACTICAL OPERATION OF FORKLIFT

This dynamic program allows time for hands-on practical training while driving a forklift and performing various skills throughout an obstacle course. It is set up at your employer’s facility using their forklifts and in-house staff.

Each student receives an Operator Safety Training Performance Evaluation, which the employer uses to recommend the skill level and practice required.

CLASSROOM PARTICIPATION

Students receive a book with theory and guidelines for the competent operation of a forklift or counterbalanced lift truck.

An extensive material review and a question-and-answer period are included. Movies, PowerPoint presentations, and vehicle models illustrate the critical objectives of forklift operation.

The program covers the Objectives for Safe Operation, the Stability Triangle, legislation, job site hazard assessments, components and operating controls, data plates and decals, speed factors, handling fuels and batteries, fundamentals of lift truck operation, load handling, travelling, confined area operation, daily inspection, emergency response, and practical exercises.

EXAM

An exam is administered to test the student’s knowledge.

TIMELINE FOR PROGRAM

We recommend one day for experienced drivers and 2 days for novice operators. This involves half classroom and half hands-on experience.
