Certified Onsite Forklift Training For OSHA Compliance
WE COME TO YOU!
WHAT TO EXPECT WITH ON-SITE FORKLIFT TRAINING
ROI Safety Services provides a classroom style presentation followed by our Training consultant leads the hands-on exercises. Training includes operating hazards, stability triangle, combined actions, pre-operation inspection, nameplates, operating a lift truck, tipping, loading/unloading, traveling, ramps and railroad tracks, docks, parking, unattended fork trucks, and propane refueling. Our on-site training is typically 2 hours long, but can vary depending on your specific training needs.
Prior to our training, we ask that employers ensure the prospective operators have reviewed all pertinent information found in the specific operators manual, instruction on the equipment controls and have been provided supervised practice on the forklift. This training is collaborative. In order to provide the best training your team needs to understand the equipment and how it operates. After this training, your team should know how to work around the equipment safely, be responsible for the equipment itself, and understand what habits operators need to develop and maintain in order for safe operation to continue.
After completion of this course, passing participants will receive Powered Industrial Truck Certification Cards, which are valid for 3 years.
We can train your small team of 1-5 people as well as your team of 50-100 employees.
Get the right certifications
There are multiple classes of Powered Industrial Trucks. If you drive more than one class of Powered Industrial Trucks, you need to be trained and certified on each class. For example, if you have one Forklift Operator Card for a Class III Forklift, but also drive a Class II vehicle, you need to have a Certification Card for the Class II equipment as well. ROI Safety Services provides onsite OSHA Training & Compliance nationwide.

Forklift Training Facts
Anyone operating a forklift must be trained and certified in accordance with OSHA’s training requirements of 29 CFR 1910.178. Licenses must be renewed every three years. The penalty for operating a forklift without a valid certification begin at $7,000 and can go as high as $70,000.

The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) requires employers to provide employees who drive powered industrial trucks proper training in the operation of the vehicles to prevent accidents and injuries. OSHA 29 CFR 1910.178(I) requires that employees go through training on vehicle inspections, maintenance, and vehicle operation.
