An employee evaluation of the skills necessary for forklift safety in your workplace
is what OSHA requires before the employer signs that the employee is certified.

Our forklift training consultants provide all the tools and information that is
required by OSHA regarding certifying an employee. The certification process is
simple, yet a very important decision that will affect the health and safety of both
the operator and pedestrian employees.

How do employees get certified?
Forklift certification is a three step simple process.
Forklift training: 2 types of training

    Formal forklift training
   Practical forklift training

After the training, the employer must evaluate the employee's driving ability on the
employers forklift.  The employer must document this evaluation.  Just because
an employee was evaluated driving a forklift, does not automatically mean that
they are certified.

The employer must then certify that the employee may drive forklifts for that
employer.  This is the easiest stage of the process.  However; this is by far the
most important issue for the employer.  If the employer certifies the employee, the
employer is in essence certifying that the employer has provided the training
outlined by OSHA and that the employee is competent to operate a power
industrial truck.

Does the certification have an expiration date?
Yes, the certification expires three years from the date of the prior evaluation. 
Once the employee is certified, the employer must re-evaluate the employee in the
workplace every three years.

* High lift trucks

Why Obtain a certification to operate a forklift?                 
The General Industry Standard states:
"It is a violation of Federal law for anyone UNDER 18 years of age to operate a
forklift or for anyone OVER 18 years of age who is not properly trained and certified
to do so."

On May 29, 1971 (36 FR 10466), OSHA adopted some of the existing Federal
standards and national consensus standards as OSHA standards under the
procedures described in section 6(a) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act
(OSH Act) (29 U.S.C. 655, Section 6(a) permitted OSHA to adopt, without
rulemaking, within 2 years of the effective date of the Act, any established Federal
standard or national consensus standard.

Only trained and authorized operators shall be permitted to operate a powered
industrial truck. Methods of training shall be devised to train operators in the safe
operation of powered industrial trucks.

In that consensus standard, a powered industrial truck is defined as a mobile,
power-driven vehicle used to carry, push, pull, lift, stack, or tier material. One truck
may be known by several different names. Included are vehicles that are
commonly referred to as high lift trucks, counterbalanced trucks, cantilever trucks,
rider trucks, forklift trucks; high lift trucks, high lift platform trucks; low lift trucks, low
lift platform trucks; motorized hand trucks, pallet trucks; narrow aisle rider trucks,
straddle trucks; reach rider trucks; single side loader rider trucks; high lift order
picker rider trucks; motorized hand/rider trucks; or counterbalanced front/side
loader lift trucks. Excluded from the scope of the OSHA standard are vehicles
used for earth moving or over-the-road haulage.
