They also require that a periodic refresher training in addition to a supervised driving program is completed. There is no required minimum time for the classroom training or supervised driving. Additionally, there is no frequency mandated for the refresher training either.

Counterbalanced Forklifts

The lift truck forks are in a fixed position but could be raised and lowered to secure and transport cargo. The forks run parallel to the forklift's body. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration require that people who will be using counterbalanced forklifts on the job be correctly trained on the trucks while being in the kind of environment that they would be using them.

Classroom Training

It covers how to gauge the time on the engine along with any lift truck specific safety information like for example where to stand when walking around the truck. Either written and/or oral testing is part of the classroom training. There is no minimum time requirement for the training.

There is no required minimum number of hours the driver has to drive while being supervised.
