Forklift Operator Training



MHI Training- The Power in Partnership

When you partner up with MHI to conduct training, you are getting more than one-time in-class and hands-on instruction. You are partnering with an industry professional who will assist you in not simply teaching proper forklift handling and maneuvering, but a company that provides you with professional ongoing assistance to truly help you employ well trained forklift and lift equipment operators. Once you've read the information below please call (888) 865-2083 or visit our dealerships in Georgia, Tennessee or Kentucky with any questions about our forklift safety equipment or programs, lift truck operator training or buying a new piece of material handling equipment.

Operator Training

Read OSHA's requirement regarding Powered Lift Truck Operator Training. Our instructors use classroom and Hand-On teaching focusing on the proper operation of specific types of powered industrial trucks used in your business.

Choosing MHI as your partner in training you fulfill OSHA's requirement that forklift operator training that is outsourced be "...conducted by persons who have the knowledge, training, and experience to train powered industrial truck operators and evaluate their competence."  We have trained thousands of operators and trainers in our markets and you can count on our experience to be a reliable and effective source of training.

See details about our classes and what they entail and pricing.

For those customers that wish to conduct training on their own, we offer a comprehensive Train the Trainer course which will prepare the trainer to provide effective forklift operator training to others in the organization.

Our goal, like yours, is not to simply fulfill OSHA's requirement, but to ensure that all your employees are working in a safe and productive environment.

Train the Trainer

MHI Instructors prepare your instructors to lead your people through general forklift safety operation. Our classes are geared to help the instructor understand what needs to be covered and how to translate that into actual training for your potential operators. We have experience at training your trainers how to train! This includes much more than simply going through a slide show and providing hands-on evaluation, but gets to the heart of communicating each topic thoroughly and in a manner that is easily understood.

To learn more about our philosophy about training a trainer to be effective, please read what we feel are "The Four Things a Forklift Operator Training Instructor Must Know and be Capable of Performing."

Like the trainers at MHI, your trainer needs to meet the criteria lists above to conduct training and is why we  recommend that this person has been trained in Forklift Operator Training prior to us conducting Train the Trainer. It is further recommended that the person conducting the training have a background in either safety or forklift and lift equipment operation.
