Lift truck Truck Training
Operators should undergo training on an industrial-powered forklift, or lift truck in order to receive forklift operator certification. The training program must be specific to the forklift type and attachments which you would be utilizing on the job location. Training should also reflect the atmosphere wherein you will be working. Lift truck safety must be a main concern for both the trainer and the operator trainee.

General Qualifications
Anyone utilizing a lift truck must undergo both training and certification before assuming operator duties. Basic qualifications for using a lift truck include an age minimum of 18 years and the physical capacity to control and operate the unit safely.

Pedestrian Safety
The safety of pedestrians must be a top concern of any lift truck driver. Pedestrians in the vicinity of the forklift are at risk of injury or death from getting hit by the machinery or its additions. Pedestrians should always have the right of way, and forklift operators must honk their horns when working at crosswalks or intersections or near pedestrians.

Training should be completed on the kind of forklift and attachments which will be utilized by the trainee in the workplace.
