Becoming a Forklift Certify Operator

Powered Industrial Trucks (Forklift) this industrial machinery falls under the parameters outlined for Industrial Lift operation and as such it is a position that requires forklift driver certification. The certification process is specific yet not unusually difficult to obtain. Certain steps must be understood and adhered to before qualifications are met.

While considered a basic skill of warehouse, factory, or other industrial workers, certification is nevertheless mandated by OSHA 29 CFR 1910-178 and insurance providers. In the United States, failure to obtain the necessary certification will result in fines and penalties to the contractors and business owners found guilty of non-compliance.

Starting with the basics, this OSHA regulation guide provides a complete run-down of the Powered Indusrial Truck (forklift) certification process and explains how a business or individual can become certified to operate such an industrial Lift truck.
