How Old Do You need to be to Drive a Forklift?
To drive and operate a forklift you need to be at least 18 years of age, stated in the fair Labor Standards Act. These forklift age requirements are non-negotiable. Protect your company and employees with our do-it-yourself OSHA Certified Forklift Safety Training Materials.
Employers must be reminded that all forklift operators that are 18 years old or older must be trained and the employer must certify that their operators are competent to operate forklifts. Employers must identify, obtain and apply additional resources to ensure a safe and healthful workplace for all workers on a consistent daily basis and to be aware of forklift driver requirements.
