The Powered Industrial Trucks (Forklift) Safety Training Program instructs forklift operators in safety requirements including equipment maintenance, risk assessment, and personal protective equipment.  This course meets OSHA safety training requirements.  This class covers all aspects of Powered Industrial Truck (Forklift) Safety.  This information-packed classroom course encourages participants to observe, analyze and discuss recommended safety practices. Upon completion of this course, participants must pass a written test.  This satisfies the OSHA Powered Industrial Truck (Forklift) Standard, 1910.178.


The Northeast Florida Safety Council, in partnership with First Coast Technical College, now offers Hands-On Forklift Driver Training. This 8-hour combination of classroom and actual behind-the-wheel training is geared toward drivers who have little or no forklift-driving experience.  During the hands-on portion participants will be taught basic forklift operation and receive practical training in the skill set needed to safely drive a forklift.   The prerequisite for the Hands-On portion is that participants must be at least 18 years of age to enroll and they must have successfully completed the 4-hour Forklift Safety Training Class prior to attending the hands-on training.

Please check the training calendar for hands-on dates, or call us at (904) 399-3119 ext. 142


Remember:  Employers must train forklift operators on each type of forklift they may operate at their place of employment and on how to drive safely in the workplace.  OSHA also requires a formal, hands-on evaluation of the forklift operator on the equipment they normally operate.  The Safey Council can send an Instructor/Evaluator to your location for the evaluation.  Please contact Bruce Press at (904) 399-3119 ext. 127 for information on scheduling and pricing.
