Accidents can happen unexpectedly in the workplace at any time, for this reason, it’s very important for all forklift operators to have the proper education and training necessary to perform their job safely. Forklift operator training not only helps protect the individual operating the forklift but also the people around them while avoiding any damage to company property.

Our forklift training program is done on site to help your company and its forklift operators in Delaware to comply with OSHA’s regulations.

How to Become a Certified Forklift Operator in DE

Under regulation 1910.178, OSHA requires all forklift operators in Delaware to be trained and evaluated every three years. OSHA mandates that forklift operator training is to consist of a combination of formal training (e.g., classroom, interactive computer training, written material), and practical training, including evaluation (hands-on evaluation by a qualified instructor). Organizations who fail to comply with these regulations will result in heavy fines.

Total Equipment Training offers forklift certification training programs which meet all OSHA and the U.S. Department of Labor’s requirements for forklift certification. Learn more about the curriculum of our classroom and hands-on forklift training certifications program.

Testimonials from clients who used Total Equipment Training in DE

To Whom It May Concern,

As the Safety and Training Manager for our Milford, DE based firm, I just wanted to take the time to reach out to you in regards to our on-site forklift training program from last month. As our organization has recently gone through a hiring phase, we had many new forklift operators who needed to update their certification.

With my 15 years of industrial safety experience, I know the value that on-site heavy equipment training has over the dime a dozen training school. For this reason, I’m very grateful that my in-depth research led me to Total Equipment. Your organization’s flexibility and extensive knowledge of the course material made the entire training process a breeze for everyone involved. Using our own equipment throughout training made a seamless transition from training to application.

As someone who is experienced in the training industry, I can say with confidence that Total Equipment Training is the only way to go for heavy equipment training. I would highly recommend your organization to my colleagues.

It has been a pleasure working with you, and I know I’ll be reaching out in the future.

Thanks again!
