OSHA Law requires that ALL of your Lift Truck operators be certified to operate your equipment. Penalties of $10,000 per occurrence, or $5,000 per operator are not unheard of. It is OSHA Regulation that your operators be recertified every 3 years, after a forklift related accident, or if an individual has continuously been observed to be operating a lift truck incorrectly or in an unsafe manner.
Powered Industrial Trucks includes, Forklifts (LPG, Gas, Electric, Diesel), Electric Walkie/Rider Pallet Jacks, Reach Trucks, Order Pickers, Walkie stackers & Straddle Trucks.
Attached you will find a reprint of your invoice from safety training for your expired certification. Please contact us to setup re-certification for those whose certification has expired, and for those who you may have using your equipment and are not yet certified.
So that you are properly informed:
If you have hired an employee who was certified by a previous employer, that certification is NOT valid for your company. The employee must be evaluated and certified specifically for your company.
If you have added new type of equipment since your last certification you need to have your operators certified on that equipment. For example if you had Walkie Elect Jacks or Propane Forklifts, but now also have or have switched to Reach Electric Trucks.
Please call us to arrange for recertification of your employees, and or primary certification for new employees.
