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 Maryland to comply with OSHA’s regulations.

How to Become a Certified Forklift Operator in Maryland

Under regulation 1910.178, OSHA requires all forklift operators in MD to be trained and evaluated every three years. OSHA mandates that forklift operator training consists 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 operator 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.
