Attending as an Operator Refresher: Per federal and state regulations, forklift operators are required to re-take the practical operating evaluation every 36 months to become re-qualified. Even though regulations require you only be re-evaluated on the equipment, we highly recommend you attend the entire half-day program at the refresher rate. To attend as an “Operator Refresher” you must possess a current and non-expired OVERTON Safety Training ID card.
Forklift Workshop Topics
This half day Forklift safety program covers laws and standards related to forklift operation, daily forklift and area inspection, stability, key components, load engagement, stacking and tiering, refueling/recharging, traveling, understanding load rating charts, signaling, dealing with job site and electrical hazards.
Aerial/Scissor Lift Workshop Topics
This half day Aerial/Scissor Lift safety program covers laws and standards related to aerial lift operation, daily lift and area inspection, stability, key components, fall protection requirements and use, traveling, refueling/recharging, platforms/buckets, gates, understanding capacity charts, and dealing with wind and electrical hazards. Students are asked to bring their harnesses to the class if they have one to save time with harness sizing before the practical evaluations.
