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.

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
