At Lift South, our customers’ safety always comes first.

We know that good safety practices don’t happen by accident. That’s why we offer professional safety training for forklift operators. Let our team of instructors help your forklift operators learn proper procedures in our OSHA-certified classes.


Operating a forklift may look easy to people who’ve never used one before. However, there are a precise set of safety standards that must be understood and put in to use to protect both people and property. Our operator training consists of a classroom section plus hands-on practical exercises that helps you accomplish this goal. Training can be done at your location or at our warehouse.

The classroom section lasts approximately four to five hours and the hands-on section lasts approximately three hours. During the hands-on section, the students are able to drive equipment. At this time, the instructor will give each operator individual training that’s based on their personal experience and familiarity with forklifts and other material handling equipment.

Lift South’s safety training program meets and exceeds all the requirements of 29CFR1910.178, the US Department of Labor’s OSHA requirements for safe forklift operator training. These standards are also incorporated by South Carolina OSHA and North Carolina OSHA.

All of our classes are OSHA Certified and the certification is good for three years. Each operator who enrolls will receive a detailed safety training handbook/workbook. At the completion of training, operators will receive an 8x13 wall mounting certificate and wallet card. These cards include the operator’s name, date , and the type of training they received.
