What do we need to do to become OSHA Compliant? 

Quite simply, this is the most frequent question that we receive.  The answer is simple and clearly defined by: 

OSHA Federal Regulation 29CFR1910.178, paragraph L, “Operator Training”  

  1. It is the EMPLOYER’S responsibility to Train, Test, Evaluate and Authorize every one of their forklift operators. 
  2. Training and Evaluation(s) are the employer’s responsibility, regardless of previous experience or prior training.
  3. All training must be site and equipment specific.
  4. Driving evaluation tests must be completed and filed for each forklift operator for every forklift that they operate to include loaners, rentals or any new or used forklifts acquired.
  5. OSHA clearly states; “Certification. The EMPLOYER shall certify that each operator has been trained and evaluated as required by this paragraph L”.
  6. The employer is certifying to OSHA that they are in compliance with OSHA’s training requirements and that every operator has been trained, tested, evaluated and Authorized.
  7. Forklift operators are not certified, they are Authorized.
  8. Daily Safety Inspection Report Forms must be filled out on every forklift at the beginning of every shift.
  9. Training shall consist of a Complete video review of the entire OSHA Federal Regulation 29CFR1910.178, Powered Industrial Trucks, Operator Workbook, pre-shift Safety Inspections, Written Test and Driving Evaluation Test(s). After each operator has successfully completed OSHA’s training requirements and for those forklift operator’s that can demonstrate safe driving skills and practices on a daily basis, Authorization Cards and Certificates of Completion can be issued by the employer to the forklift operator(s).
  10. From a liability standpoint, we recommend that the employer takes two hours every year to re-certify their forklift operator’s by providing classroom instruction and driving evaluations. 

Forklift Operator Safety Training does not need to be boring.  Our Forklift Safety Training Kits assure that you as the business owner comply with all 10 of the stipulated CFR definitions listed above. 

Our simple to present and easy to understand OSHA Compliant training materials require a  2-hour classroom instruction that includes a video that is interactive with our provided Operator’s Handbooks. 

A 15-minute safety meeting that OSHA refers to as a “Lunch Box” session does not qualify or meet the OSHA training standard for forklift operator training. 

Good record keeping of your training and testing materials is imperative in the event of an OSHA audit or demand is made in the event of a liability lawsuit.  

ForkliftSafety.com is committed to providing OSHA Compliant Training that maximizes Employee Safety and Business Owner Protection.
