Forklift Safety Training Certification by PMT Forklift

PMT Forklift Corp. is the leading provider in OSHA Required Forklift Operator Safety Training certification For New York City & LongIsland.  Our Forklift Training School is one of the highest acclaimed forklift operator training program offerings in the Tri-State area.  In New York State certified forklift operators are in demand.

We want to help you prevent a forklift accident or forklift fatality in your warehouse or yard whether you are in Queens, College Point, Flushing, Brooklyn, Long Island City, Red Hook, Bronx, Nassau, Suffolk, or anywhere in the New york City NYC Metro and LI area.

We can train you on any type of Forklift, LPG Propane, Gasoline, Electric, Sit-down, Standup, Pallet jack, Electric rider, Order Picker, Reach truck, lull, rough terrain, cushion, pneumatic...  or any brand of forklift like Mitsubishi, Linde, Clark, TCM, Hyster, Yale, Toyota, Komatsu, Crown, Raymond, Big Joe, Blue Giant, Daewoo, TCM, Nissan, Cat / Caterpillar or any other brand.

We do classes at your place or in house at our facilities.  We even give you a free basic safety inspection on your equipment as part of the class.  We even now have Online Virtual Live Instructor led Forklift Safety Training. 

NO Class is to big or too small.  Individual classes and training available. 

Forklift Operator Training is not only the smart thing to do, it's the law by OSHA Federal Regulation.  There is no such thing as a Forklift License, but OSHA Certification IS required for anyone operating a lift truck for a company. 

PMT Forklift is a reliable source for your forklift operator training on Long Island and in New York.  OSHA requires that your operators be certified by someone with "knowledge, training, and experience to train operators and evaluate their competence."  

That is why you need PMT to handle this for you.  When you allow us to perform your training you are relying on forklift professionals with adequate experience in teaching the fundamentals of forklift safety. Don't be fooled by other programs out there that promise you a quick Certifyme solution.  Would you trust a doctor who only took medical courses online?

We offer classes both at your location, and at our location.  Classes are required even if you are or only have one operator or even if you are the owner with no other operators.  Also operators should be at least 18 years of age.

Classes & Materials also available in English, Spanish, Korean, Chinese, & Polish.

What does our class cover?

  • Forklift Accident Prevention
  • Forklift Operator Safety
  • OSHA Forklift Regulations
  • What is a Professional?
  • Lift Truck Fundamentals
  • Principles of Balance, Stability and Capacity
  • Pre-Operational Inspections
  • Safety Guidelines for Operating Lift Trucks
  • Safe Load-Handling Techniques
  • Fueling: IC Trucks and Batteries
  • Proper Accident and Safety Hazards Documentation
  • Fall Protection (Order pickers, Forklift Basket Cages, Aerial Lifts, Scissor Lifts)

Who should attend our forklift operator training course?

  • Forklift Operators
  • Warehouse Supervisors
  • Plant Managers
  • Distribution Managers
  • Anyone who may operate a lift truck

Why you should be certified or have your operators certified

  • It is the LAW
  • Reduce your insurance premiums
  • Save on lift truck maintenance costs from damage & abuse
  • Insure yours or your employees safety
  • Course qualifies as required Comp Safety meeting
  • Cut down on product damage & warehouse accidents

If you have not been certified in 3 years or more or ever, or you have been in a forklift related accident or infraction, you need to take a re-certification course.  We offer re-certification courses for operators who have previously been certified, as well as full course for un-certified operators.

When everyone is one board you can operate a safe and productive facility.  It is not good enough for operators alone to understand these principles of safe forklift operation. It is important that those in charge also understand them in order to make sound judgement about when training is needed. Read about forklift refresher training on OSHA's eTool, HERE.

To further your training and protect your company even more we now offer add on modules and stand alone modules such as:

Preventing Product Damage

Pedestrian safety in the warehouse

Wareshouse Dock Safety

Forklifts weigh thousands of pounds and an accident usually results in loss, either product or human.  Sometimes the results can be catastrophic and PMT Forklift takes forklift operator training seriously.  Please contact us for more information on our classes or schedule.

Training vs Teaching - Our Feature Article Forklift Training vs Teaching: Knowing the Differences explains how we learn, and the vast differences between forklift operator teaching and true training. It also illuminates some of the things you can do to ensure a true training program that will provide you with a safe operating environment for your materials handling operation.

Forklift Driving Lessons & Instruction - PMT Forklift provides training for those that have never driving a forklift and are in need of basic operational instruction.

**NOTE**  If you are using order pickers, scissor lifts, forklift man baskets, boom lifts, cherry pickers, forklift cages, PLEASE remember that you should be wearing proper fall protection consisting of Body harness and Lanyard.  We sell body harnesses and lanyards.

**NOTE ON WEARING EARPHONES AND EARBUDS WHILE OPERATING INDUSTRIAL EQUIPMENT: As per OSHA Code CFR29 interpretation and 2011 DOL ruling, Audible hearing devices such as Airpods and Earbuds that are not being used for work purpose communication should not be worn in examples such as but not limited to: wearing such prevents or interfere's with an operator or worker's ability to hear warning sounds such as fire alarms, back up alarm and other warning devices; or wearing such a device impedes the employees ability to prevent "struck-by hazards" such as falling boxes, other machinery or pedestrians.  Ultimately it is up to your company to institute a policy for this.

If you have had forklift operator safety training through PMT and you are unsure all your operators are meeting OSHA requirements, please download this notice for an important message and offer

OSHA Law requires that ALL of your Lift Truck operators be certified to operate your equipment.  Penalties of $10,000 per occurrence, or $5,000 per operator are not unheard of. It is OSHA Regulation that your operators be recertified every 3 years, after a forklift related accident, or if an individual has continuously been observed to be operating a lift truck incorrectly or in an unsafe manner.

A new report generated by OSHA highlights the real costs associated with on the job injuries, who pays them and how this impacts the employee and taxpayers
