What are Company Responsibilities for Forklift Training?
Forklift Training Requirements
Creating a safer environment to work in is essential in Ontario. Bad habits, poor training or lack of training have led to countless avoidable accidents. The Ministry of Labour (MOL), Canadian Standards Association (CSA) and the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) have all set forth regulations and standards to ensure the operator, co-worker and company’s facility are all safe and protected. Only trained and authorized personnel are permitted to operate forklift truck equipment.
Whether you are in a warehouse, industrial environment, construction site, or outdoor setting where powered lift equipment is being utilized, forklift training and certification are required for the safe operation, personnel safety and avoidance of fines.
Keep in mind that the Ministry of Labour requires that anyone operating a Lift Truck is a competent operator, and may request to see training documents at any time.
How Long is Forklift Certification Valid For?
CSA Standard indicates that forklift certificates are valid for 3 years and that re-training shall occur within that time frame. Initial Training, Re-training or Renewal / Re-Certification should consist of:
Knowledge Verification (theory) and,
Practical Driver’s Training ( when applicable)
Practical Skills (Driving) Assessment
Why is Re-Training / Certification Important?
After 3 or more years of operating a Fork Lift Truck, one can imagine that bad habits could be in play.
New equipment has been introduced.
An accident has occurred at your place of work.
Initial training was not effective or up to standards.
*Each different type or class of Lift Truck requires both evaluations listed above.
