Forklift Operator Training 103:
This OSHA forklift operator training video course 103 [Refresher] is the third course in the OSHA Forklift Certification Training Series. There are over 100,000 forklift accidents every year, making it one of the leading causes of workplace injury. Even the most experienced drivers can cause an accident if they get complacent and speed or stop paying attention. Staying refreshed on how to operate and maintain a forklift is critical to employee safety. The key areas to be refreshed annually are Safe Operating Procedures, Workplace Hazards, and Safe Loading. This course serves as that annual forklift training refresher. Also included are digital copies of additional training materials for print, including a leadership guide, course exam and course answer sheet. This forklift training course can be used as the basis for approximately one hour of instructor-guided training.

Safe Forklift Operating Procedures:
With experience, sometimes comes complacency, and/or lack of enforcement of safe forklift operating procedures. Both the untrained and the experience may skip the required visual inspection before using a powered industrial truck like a forklift. Same for doing the proper operational checks before using. This and other operating procedures are covered in this section to refresh and re-enforce safety awareness.
Industrial environments in which forklifts are commonly used, constantly change. What is a workplace hazard today, may not have existed a year ago or when operators were last trained. Workplace hazards can be anywhere, or anything, from a wet floor to a joking coworker who wants to horse around. Besides the unexpected, speeding and improper turning contribute to the majority of workplace accidents. That is the focus of this section of the forklift training refresher.
Safe Forklift Loading:
Operators are reminded to anticipate the worst-case scenario and be prepared for it. Important areas covered are knowing the route that will be traveled, and know the weight of the load to be carried. Also, ensuring forks are positioned properly and that the load is balanced are covered. Important tips and reminders are given like "Never lift a load higher than necessary". As indicated by the extent covered in OSHA 1910.178(m), safe forklift loading and unloading are arguably the most important section for a refresher. Largely in part to there being so many loading aspects for forklift operators to consider when first trained.
The above forklift safety course is sent as one DVD containing video, training aids and resources.
