Who should take
the Telehandler training?
OSHA states that before
any employee is allowed to operate a Telehandler forklift, the employer
is required to demonstrate that an employee has successfully completed
a forklift training and evaluation course of study. FORKLIFT
TECH assists your company to fulfill this requirement with our online
training and on site testing guidelines.
Temporary help must
also be instructed about your specific equipment and your specific facility
even if they have been certified by their employer. For the sake of
uniformity, we recommend retraining temporary help using FORKLIFT TECH.
is required by OSHA if an operator is observed to operate the forklift
in an unsafe manner, is involved in an accident or near miss incident,
receives an evaluation which reveals he is not operating the forklift
safely, is assigned to a different forklift, or conditions in the
workplace change which can affect forklift safety. FORKLIFT TECH
allows for complete retraining in these events and allows the Administrator
to decertify operators through the Administrative Control Page.
At the minimum, the Trainer will need to evaluate these operators
before they continue their duties.
In addition, an evaluation
of each operator's performance is required every three years.
FORKLIFT TECH recommends
complete retraining every three years which requires purchase of another
subscription, even though this is not required by OSHA. This is the
reason for the three year time limit on an operator's certification.
FORKLIFT TECH provides
a brief refresher training section, available when certified operators
log in. FORKLIFT TECH recommends operators log in every 6 months and
take this training to reinforce important safety issues.
Can Spanish speaking
employees take the training?
Telehandler training is currently not available in Spanish.
How do I accomplish
Your Trainer will
normally perform on-site training on both Telehandler and regular
forklifts at your location and then log in to FORKLIFT
TECH to record completion of that operator's on-site training. This
creates a record of the operator's training and certifies the operator.
After certification, the trainer can print a certificate of completion
and driver license for the operator.
There is no requirement
for a driver's license, but it provides the operator with a simple
document showing his completion of a forklift training and certification
