Counterbalance forklift Training
The OSHA or Occupational Safety and Health Administration require that anyone utilizing a counterbalanced lift truck receive lecture style or classroom training. They additionally require that a supervised driving course is finished in addition to periodic refresher training. There is no required minimum time for the supervised driving or classroom training. Also, there is no frequency mandated for the refresher training either.

Counterbalanced Forklifts
The counterbalanced forklift's weight is used to balance its cargo utilizing its own weight. The forklift forks are in a fixed position but could be lowered and raised to secure and move cargo. The forks run parallel to the body of the forklift. OSHA require that individuals who would be utilizing counterbalanced forklifts on the job be trained on the trucks while being in the environment which they will be using them.

Classroom Training
Training either in a classroom or lecture style would offer lift truck and operator information for the truck you would be operating. Most training would cover several aspects like the weight and load capacity, height, how to charge or fuel the lift truck. It covers how to gauge the time on the engine as well as any forklift specific safety information like where to stand when walking around the truck. Either oral and/or written testing is part of the classroom training. There is no required minimum time for the training.

Supervised Driving
The lift truck driver has to learn how to drive the counterbalanced forklift while being supervised. The supervised driving needs to take place in an area which reflects the environment the driver would be driving in. This atmosphere must include the type of terrain she will be traveling on, have similar surrounding structures close by, and similar pedestrian and vehicle traffic close by as well. There is no required minimum number of hours the driver needs to drive while being supervised.
