Forklift Training


Forklifts are everywhere so we often don’t think of the hazards they pose.  

OSHA requires both classroom training and practical skills assessment of every Powered Industrial Truck (forklift) operator in 29 CFR 1910.178. 

The Sunshine Safety Council offers you a variety of options to accomplish compliance with this training.

Forklift Formal (Classroom) Operator Training

4 hour classes regularly scheduled at our office cover essentials such as truck and load characteristics, pre-trip inspections, fueling, and the stability triangle. Employers are then provided a guide and checklist to use at their location to complete the practical skills assessment initially and every 3 years as required by the standard.

Formal Training & Practical Assessment

Let us send an instructor to you for comprehensive training! Using your equipment in your work environment, training can be accomplished to meet both aspects of the training standard.

Practical Assessment Only

Have a SSC instructor come to your facility to complete your every 3 year assessments and document them.

Forklift Operator Train-the-Trainer

Purchase a training kit and train a responsible supervisor or manager to conduct training for your employees in-house. Coaching Systems, the training kit publisher will conduct such training at SSC twice annually.
