Lift truck Truck Training Program
To receive certification as a lift truck driver, you must undergo training on an industrial-powered forklift, or lift truck. The training should be specific to the forklift attachments and type that you would be utilizing on the job site. Training must also reflect the setting wherein you will be working. Forklift safety should be a top priority for both the operator trainee and the trainer.

General Credentials
Prior to assuming any operator duties, all forklift drivers must undergo training and certification. Basic credentials for using a forklift include being at least 18 years old and the physical ability to safely control and operate the unit.

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

Weather Conditions
A lot of mishaps involving forklifts take place at loading docks. These areas become hazardous if rain leaks in through open dock doors causing a very slippery floor. Wet floor conditions can lead to a hazard and drivers need to know possible hazards when working in loading dock areas.

Certification
Lift truck certification programs consist of a combination of practical training and classroom instruction tailored to the specific needs of the workplace. Training must be undertaken on the kind of forklift and attachments which will be used by the trainee in the workplace.

Accidents
On average, there is approximately 100 deaths attributed to forklift mishaps, while more than 100,000 are injured by forklifts. Most of these accidents are avoidable with correct operator training and attention to safety.
