The purpose of Behavior Safety Associates’ Forklift Safety Program is to prevent injury or property damage caused by the unsafe operation of forklifts. Our forklift experts developed this program to comply with OSHA 29 CFR 1910.178, Powered Industrial Trucks and 29 CFR 1926.20. It applies to all workplaces using forklifts.
Behavior Safety Associates, LLC will develop policy and procedures for operating forklifts.
Operator Training will be conducted by Behavior Safety Associates forklift professionals prior to allowing anyone to operate aforklift, with re-certification for experienced operators every 3 years. All BSA trainers have the knowledge and ability to teach and evaluate operators as set forth in 29 CFR 1910.178(l)(2)(iii).
Our forklift training utilizes written tests to assess the effectiveness of the knowledge of the employee after training. All incorrect answers, even with an acceptable score, must be reviewed with the trainer to ensure the operator knows each correct answer. In addition to the written verification of knowledge, a hands-on test of operator skills is also required.
