We go to your Tampa Florida facility and provide forklift safety training.

If you have forklifts at your business in Tampa, your forklift operators must be trained and certified. OSHA clearly mandates that forklift training must be site specific and machine specific.

What does this mean to you? Well, you can’t do forklift training online. Why? Well how will the online presentation make it site specific and include the hazards of your workplace?


Forklift training must be machine specific, how can it know if your forklift has an attachment? How does it know if you have a negative lift?


OSHA standard  1910.178(l)(2)(ii) states “Training shall consist of a combination of formal instruction (e.g., lecture, discussion, interactive computer learning, video tape, written material), practical training (demonstrations performed by the trainer and practical exercises performed by the trainee), and evaluation of the operator's performance in the workplace.”


How will the online service demonstrate and evaluate your operators and certify them in safe operation?

Offsite Training

Hate to burst your bubble but you can’t do this either. Again, forklift training must be site specific and you can’t do that unless you’re on location.


Training must be machine specific, so if you send your people out and they get trained on a counterbalance that won’t cut

it if you have a different classification of forktruck. There are seven different classifications of forklifts and you must be trained on the type in your facility.

Refresher Training

Refresher training, including an evaluation of the effectiveness of that training, shall be conducted as to ensure that the operator has the knowledge and skills needed to operate the powered industrial truck safely.


Refresher training is required every three years or when:

Forklift Accidents

The human body is no match for a forklift that weighs thousands of pounds. The one certainty is that should a person get in an altercation with a forklift, the human will lose.

Unfortunately when these accidents occur they cause a tremendous amount of bodily damage. Because of this, forklift accidents have huge payout's. These payoffs can go from $300,000 into the millions of dollars.

Forklift accidents also cause property and equipment damage.

Protect Your Business          

You can’t prevent lawsuits, but you can help mitigate exposure. You do this by being able to demonstrate that you have a comprehensive forklift training program in place and that you enforce OSHA policy and your own company policies.

We offer all Florida employers to have their forklift operator’s professionally trained and certified on the following types of forklift equipment: 

Counterbalance

Narrow Aisle

Electric Pallet Jacks

Rough Terrain

Aerial Lifts
