Ft Lauderdale Forklift Training & Certification

Forklift safety training and certification is mandatory in Ft Lauderdale. We come to your Ft Lauderdale facility and train your forklift operators on your equipment.Mitigate your risk by having your employees take a comprehensive forklift certification class.

OSHA mandated that all new forklift operators must be trained & certified, regardless of experience. All forklift operators in and around Ft Lauderdale; 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.

Pulse America offers Ft Lauderdale area 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 forklift safety training and certification 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 forklift 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 recklessly.) 

 

Reasons for the OSHA standard

Each year, about 100 deaths and sixty thousand injuries related to 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 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 operating procedures, lack of safety-rule enforcement, and insufficient or inadequate training.
