Forklift Operator Training: Fundamentals - Cal/OSHA Thumbnail
For Multiple Users
Forklifts are commonplace in many Californian workplaces, and many may think driving a forklift is just like driving a car. Unfortunately, forklift accidents are common, including collisions, pinches, roll-overs, and accidents involving loads or even pedestrians. However, proper training in operation and safe work practices can avoid most accidents. This course informs employees about a forklift’s instruments and controls, common hazards associated with forklift operation and Cal/OSHA-required safe work practices for forklift operation. This course is designed for Californian employees who are required to drive a forklift or other powered industrial truck as part of their normal job duties, and helps employers cover OSHA and Cal/OSHA’s classroom training requirements for operating forklifts. Employees will also require in-person training from their employer before being authorized to operate a forklift.
