Palm Beach Forklift Safety
Training & Certification Classes
OSHA 29 CFR 1910.178 -
In Palm Beach County Florida Forklift safety training and certification is
mandatory. We go to your Palm Beach County facility and train your forklift operators
on your equipment. Mitigate your risk by
having your employees take a comprehensive forklift training & certification class.
The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) mandated that all new forklift operators must be trained
& certified, regardless of experience.
Beach County forklift operators; regardless of experience, must be evaluated for competency at least
every three years. The new rules require that forklift training be specific to the equipment you operate
and specific to the conditions under which the equipment is operated (site specific). This course
meets 29CFR 1910.178.
America offers Palm Beach County businesses a comprehensive forklift safety training and
certification program for experienced and new forklift operators. Our forklift safety training program covers
30 topics and is good for forklift operators in the manufacturing sector or yard environments.
Our Palm Beach County
forklift safety training program teaches students everything from forklift engineering principles & operator
safety rules to forklift maintenance and the importance of daily forklift inspections.
This program exceeds OSHA
regulations; each student must pass a written test and performance evaluation as required by OSHA.
Participants receive a student workbook, a wallet card and certificate valid for 3-years (unless void by
having a forklift accident, near miss or is observed driving a forklift recklessly, new/different equipment is
intorduced or working conditions change making additional training necessary).
Reasons for The OSHA standard
Each year, tens of thousands of injuries related to powered industrial trucks (PIT), or forklifts, occur in US
workplaces. Many employees are injured when forklifts are inadvertently driven off loading docks, forklifts
fall between docks and an unsecured trailer, pedestrians are struck by a forklift, or when people fall while
on elevated pallets and tines.
Most forklift incidents also
involve property damage, including damage to overhead sprinklers, racking, pipes, walls, and machinery.
Unfortunately, most employee injuries and property damage can be attributed to lack of safe forklift operating
procedures, lack of safety-rule enforcement, and insufficient or inadequate forklift training.
