OSHA 29 CFR 1910.178 - Forklift Training

 

Miami Forklift TrainingForklift safety training and certification is mandatory for Jacksonville area businesses. We come to your facility in and around Jacksonville and train your forklift operators on your equipment. Mitigate your risk by having your employees take a comprehensive forklift certification class.

The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) mandated that all new forklift operators must be trained & certified, regardless of experience.

 

All forklift operators in Jacksonville; 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 (machine specific) and specific to the conditions under which the equipment is operated (site specific). This course meets 29CFR 1910.178.

Pulse America offers a comprehensive forklift training and certification program for Jacksonville companies for experienced and new forklift operators. Our training program covers 30 topics and is good for forklift operators in the manufacturing sector or yard environments.

 

Our forklift training program teaches students everything from forklift engineering principles & operator safety rules to forklift maintenance and the importance of 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).

 

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 forklift safety-rule enforcement, and insufficient or inadequate forklift training.
