About This Course s-mod-info

OSHA's forklift regulations are intended to reduce the number of injuries and deaths that occur as a result of inadequate operator training. The regulations apply to all industries (general industry, construction, shipyards, marine terminals, and longshoring operations) in which forklift trucks are used, except agricultural operations. OSHA estimates that compliance with OSHA training requirements will prevent 11 deaths and 9,422 injuries per year. This course is designed to meet OSHA requirements for becoming an authorized forklift (powered industrial truck) operator. After students successfully complete this course and demonstrate their skills by driving and operating a forklift, they will be considered an authorized powered industrial truck operator.


This course is intended for all forklift operators.
