Forklifts come in several classes, but regardless of what kind of forklift your company uses, each operator needs to receive forklift training and certification, as well as OSHA-mandated training. Barclay Brand Ferdon offers forklift training to operators at businesses from the lower New York region to Middlesex and Ocean Counties in New Jersey. Here, we describe the types of forklift classes, as well as the training and certification required from every operator.

National Forklift Safety Day is here and Barclay is excited to celebrate and encourage safe forklift operator practices.
Sponsored by the Industrial Truck Association, the 2nd Annual National Forklift Day is being held in Washington, D.C. where leaders in the forklift industry will come together to highlight the importance of operator training to prevent forklift accidents and injuries.
Be aware of the height of the forklift when entering or exiting buildings and pay attention to the lifting capacity of your lift truck. These steps will help to avoid product and equipment damage, as well as employee injury.
Even if you are only going a few feet, it is important to keep forks low. Never travel with forks in an elevated position or lifted higher than a foot off the floor. It also never hurts to have a lookout helper if vision is not 100% clear, especially when reversing!
With the goal of reducing the hazards associated with forklifts, the Industrial Truck Association (ITA) is in Washington, D.C. today sponsoring the inaugural National Forklift Safety Day.
This event marks the convergence of manufacturers, customers, policymakers and the Administration to provide the unique opportunity for all parties to become educated and informed on industry practices meant to ensure the safest work environments possible.
