Our Forklift Safety Training courses for Virginia are regulation-compliant, and our online version fulfills classroom training requirements. Each class contains sections on anatomical components, principles of stability, safe operations, hazards to avoid, and more.
This presentation includes intermittent practice quiz questions to prepare for the final written exam included with the course. In addition to the written exam, this course also includes a checklist for employers to use when administering a practical exam. Though you will still need to familiarize yourself with all other applicable federal, state, provincial, territorial, and local standards, this training encompasses the following OSHA standards for forklift.
OSHA requires forklift training for forklift operators in Virginia--on that, there is no question. Where confusion exists is how often operators need forklift refresher training or recertification. Outside of the initial safety training class, OSHA requires forklift operators to be re-evaluated every three years to determine if they are still competent enough to operate.
