OSHA requires that anyone who operates a powered industrial truck, including lift trucks, must be trained, whether they operate the truck daily or once a year. By the conclusion of this seminar, participants will have the necessary knowledge to develop and implement a successful in-house training program that complies with OSHA standards. Introductory and overview comments will be given by OSHA staff. This seminar will include a sample of a written forklift program, training techniques, sample tests, sample evaluation sheets and sample certifications. Participants also will view a video.
