The Powered Industrial Truck Operator Training Class covers the training requirements set forth in 29 CFR 1910.178- Powered Industrial Trucks. Courses are provided through a combination of classroom instruction, practical training, and operator performance evaluation. Participants will gain basic knowledge on the following topics:
- Design, maintenance, and safe operation of forklifts
- Equipment inspection
- Load limits
- Understanding center of gravity
- Fulcrum points
Following the classroom instruction portion of the training, participants must pass both a written exam and an operator performance evaluation.
Plan to allow an adequate amount of time for the course. The classroom instruction portion is 2 hours followed by a written exam and operator performance evaluation that lasts around 15 minutes per trainee. We understand that time is valuable and all classes will be conducted as efficiently as possible.
KEMI Loss Education and Safety will provide all training materials needed for the course. For the classroom instruction portion of the training, the instructor will need the ability to show a PowerPoint presentation and participants will need tables or desks to complete the written examination. For the operator evaluation portion a Powered Industrial Truck and space within the facility must be provided.
If PowerPoint capabilities are not available on-site, let a member of KEMI Loss Education and Safety know when scheduling so alternate arrangements can be made.
Cost & Documentation of Training
Powered Industrial Truck Operator Training is provided at no cost to KEMI Policyholders. All documentation in the form of written exam(s) and operator performance evaluation(s) will be given to the policyholder as documentation of training.
