Operator Safety Training

Forklifts are involved in nearly 100,000 workplace accidents each year — roughly 11% of the U.S. operable fleet — and, unfortunately, many of those incidents are deadly. With proper training, up to 70% of these accidents can be avoided, which is why OSHA requires that anyone who operates an industrial truck complete an approved operator forklift training program and be reevaluated at least once every three years.

At Taylor Northeast, we believe that safety is the most important aspect of any job. Our comprehensive courses on forklift operator safety and overhead crane safety keep your employees protected, accountable, and educated. And we work around you — our certified trainers can conduct training at our facility or on location at your jobsite.

Taylor Northeast also offers a hands-on train the trainer program. Once an employee has completed this course, he or she will have the training and know-how necessary to authorize other members of your staff to safely operate forklifts. For more information on our available safety courses and certifications, contact us today at 1-800-762-2500.

Forklift Operator Training

Our OSHA-compliant forklift operator training courses teach operators the ins and outs of forklift safety through in-person presentations, videos, and a written evaluation.

Operators are also tasked with performing pre-trip inspections and passing a hands-on driving assessment on forklifts specific to their facility.

Per OSHA standard 1910.178, operators will be authorized for safe forklift operations for three years.

Marina Lift Truck Operator Training

Also falling under the OSHA 1910.178 standard is our marina lift truck operator training course.

With a combination of classroom and hands-on learning, students are taught the skills necessary to safely pick and transport boats around your marina.

Once operators complete testing, which takes roughly 3.5 hours, they are certified and compliant, per OSHA, for up to three years of operating a marina forklift.

Aerial Lift Training

Stay compliant with the new ANSI A92 standards with Taylor Northeast’s mobile elevated work platform (MEWP) safety training course.

Per OSHA, any employee that comes in contact with a MEWP, such as boom lifts, scissor lifts, or telehandlers, while on the job site must be authorized. This includes operators, occupants, maintenance personnel, and site supervisors.
