NO Class is to big or too small.  Individual classes and training available. 

Forklift Operator Training is not only the smart thing to do, it's the law by OSHA Federal Regulation.  There is no such thing as a Forklift License, but OSHA Certification IS required for anyone operating a lift truck for a company. 

PMT Forklift is a reliable source for your forklift operator training on Long Island and in New York.  OSHA requires that your operators be certified by someone with "knowledge, training, and experience to train operators and evaluate their competence."  

That is why you need PMT to handle this for you.  When you allow us to perform your training you are relying on forklift professionals with adequate experience in teaching the fundamentals of forklift safety. Don't be fooled by other programs out there that promise you a quick Certifyme solution.  Would you trust a doctor who only took medical courses online?

We offer classes both at your location, and at our location.  Classes are required even if you are or only have one operator or even if you are the owner with no other operators.  Also operators should be at least 18 years of age.

Classes & Materials also available in English, Spanish, Korean, Chinese, & Polish.

Why you should be certified or have your operators certified

It is the LAW

Reduce your insurance premiums

Save on lift truck maintenance costs from damage & abuse

Insure yours or your employees safety

Course qualifies as required Comp Safety meeting

Cut down on product damage & warehouse accidents

If you have not been certified in 3 years or more or ever, or you have been in a forklift related accident or infraction, you need to take a re-certification course.  We offer re-certification courses for operators who have previously been certified, as well as full course for un-certified operators.

When everyone is one board you can operate a safe and productive facility.  It is not good enough for operators alone to understand these principles of safe forklift operation. It is important that those in charge also understand them in order to make sound judgement about when training is needed. Read about forklift refresher training on OSHA's eTool, HERE.

We did not purchase our forklift from PMT but rather online or from somewhere else. Would PMT still handle our forklift training?

Yes, of course!

To further your training and protect your company even more we now offer add on modules and stand alone modules such as:

Preventing Product Damage
Pedestrian safety in the warehouse
Warehouse Dock Safety

Forklifts weigh thousands of pounds and an accident usually results in loss, either product or human.  Sometimes the results can be catastrophic and PMT Forklift takes forklift operator training seriously.  Please contact us for more information on our classes or schedule.

Training vs Teaching
Our Feature Article Forklift Training vs Teaching: Knowing the Differences explains how we learn, and the vast differences between forklift operator teaching and true training. It also illuminates some of the things you can do to ensure a true training program that will provide you with a safe operating environment for your materials handling operation.

Fall protection and accident prevention are one of the most important things you need to understand when operating a forklift.  Please call us for training.

**NOTE ON WEARING EARPHONES AND EARBUDS WHILE OPERATING INDUSTRIAL EQUIPMENT: As per OSHA Code CFR29 interpretation and 2011 DOL ruling, Audible hearing devices such as Airpods and Earbuds that are not being used for work purpose communication should not be worn in examples such as but not limited to: wearing such prevents or interferes with an operator or worker's ability to hear warning sounds such as fire alarms, back up alarm and other warning devices; or wearing such a device impedes the employees ability to prevent "struck-by hazards" such as falling boxes, other machinery or pedestrians.  Ultimately it is up to your company to institute a policy for this.

If you have had forklift operator safety training through PMT and you are unsure all your operators are meeting OSHA requirements, please download this notice for an important message and offer

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.
