Forklift Operator Training

Safety Makes Sense
At UniCarriers Americas, operator training is never an afterthought. Whether you have two drivers or two hundred, the importance of skilled forklift operators is critical to the safety of your operation and a federal regulation mandated by OSHA. In order to meet required OSHA standards, formal training is lead by UniCarriers dedicated staff of professional trainers who are well-versed in OSHA requirements, and have the necessary tools to help your business achieve compliance.

Our curriculum provides operators with practical lift truck knowledge and enough hands on experience to develop a basic skill level required to operate their forklift in an approved and acceptable manner. Each student will cover OSHA standard 1910.178 regulations, including lift truck operation, pre-operation inspection of the lift truck and work area, fueling procedures and load handling.

By the end of this course, students will be able to demonstrate practical lift truck operation skills within the guidelines established by OSHA to receive a certificate of training completion. OSHA mandate requires additional site specific training for all operators of powered industrial trucks. This authorization for final certification is the responsibility of each employer.
