Forklift Certification in Oklahoma City and Surrounding Areas: What to Expect

August 21, 2013

When it comes to driving a forklift in Oklahoma City, it is required that you get you complete an OSHA approved safety training course. So what can you expect from this training and certification course?

Any Oklahoma certification course will cover the basic information for safe operation. This includes a simple maintenance checklist, an overview of the different types of vehicles, and best practices for safely driving and operating a lift. If you are attending a traditional course, such as those offered at local trade schools, then you will also get some hands-on training and discussion time as well.

Once you have covered all of the course material, you will need to pass two tests. The first test is a written test and it will test your knowledge of the material you just went over. You will be able to print a copy of your certificate immediately after passing this. Then, you will move on to the driving test, which will be administered by your boss or other qualified driver. Once you have passed both tests, then your forklift certification is complete.

You will also get wallet-size certification card to carry, and a sticker version for your hardhat. This makes it easy to prove that you are compliant with the laws when OSHA comes for an inspection.

Your credentials will be good for three years in Okahoma City, the surrounding areas, and throughout all of the United States, Mexico and Canada (they are not state-specific).
