Overview

Forklift operators must have classroom instruction, hands-on training, and an evaluation to determine their competency. The evaluation must take place in the workplace so the trainer can observe the operator perform typical tasks in the operator’s environment. Someone other than the employer can do the training and the evaluation; however, training out of the workplace must be supplemented with on-site training that covers site-specific hazards and tasks the operator will be performing.

Employers must certify that each operator has been trained and evaluated. The certification must include the operator’s name, the trainer’s name, and the training and evaluation dates. Read more about the requirements for operators in Oregon OSHA’s Operating powered industrial trucks fact sheet.
