Forklift Operator Refresher Training

Forklift operators are to successfully complete refresher training if any of the following occur:

  • The operator is involved in an accident or near-miss incident
  • The operator is seen operating the forklift in an unsafe manner
  • An evaluation shows the operator is not operating the forklift in a safe manner
  • The operator is assigned to drive a different type or modified forklift
  • Conditions in the workplace change that could affect safe operations of the forklift

NOTE: Refresher training is required only for operation topics in which the operator is found to be deficient.

Refresher training can be documented on this form.
