Forklift Training Course
Forklifts are frequently used in Shipping & Warehousing, but they are also a common sight in recycling centers, junkyards, mines, rigs, and other establishments where high volumes of goods must be stored, moved, and/or shipped. This Forklift Training program is following the latest CSA Standard, B335-15 (R2020), addressed to employees who operate forklifts or who are required to work around these vehicles on a daily basis.

Forklifts have become indispensable tools across several industries, but they can become dangerous if not handled properly. Maneuvering a forklift correctly requires training and experience, while blind spots and load stability can be problematic for even the most experienced operators. Any mistake can lead to property damage or, even worse, to injury.
Forklift operators are not the only personnel exposed to risks. Those who sometimes guide operators and even employees who only work around these vehicles may be at risk. As such, forklift training must be completed by all employees who work in establishments were forklifts are used.
This Forklift Training program is addressed to both operators and non-operators. It is an affordable solution for employees who already work with forklifts, but also for job candidates who want to complete their CVs and businesses looking to comply with the latest safety regulations.
Employees are more likely to operate or work around forklifts in the following industries:
- Oil & Gas,
- Logistics (Shipping & Warehousing),
- Automotive & Manufacturing,
- Agriculture & Food
Employers who use forklifts in their establishments are responsible with the implementation of forklift training programs for all workers. That being said, it is the employee’s responsibility to complete the program and apply the safety measures they have learned in order to maintain their safety and that of their colleagues in the workplace.
Potential new employees who know that they are likely to be required to operate forklifts at work can independently acquire and complete this safety course to improve their CVs.
To complete this training program, you must demonstrate that you are able to inspect a forklift prior to operation and to use the vehicle for work-related purposes. You must also be able to describe the potential hazards associated with forklifts and present a set of safety measures that you can apply to properly handle loads and maintain the vehicle’s stability.
Forklift training should be completed every year by employees who frequently operate forklifts or who are required to work around them. Although underestimated, forklift accidents can prove fatal for the operator and/or those in the proximity of the vehicle. Such accidents can only be avoided through careful use and rigorous training.
Forklift Training is often purchased together with Crane Safety, Personal Protective Equipment, and/or Lockout/Tagout.
