Lift Truck Online Training




Danatec’s Safe Operation of a Lift Truck Online Program makes participants aware of their legal responsibilities and provides the required information to achieve the theory portion of becoming a competent operator.

This online training program is the first step in order to receive full-certification. Practical, hands-on training within your facility must be completed and approved by your employer in order to receive full certification.

If you would prefer to take the theory portion in a classroom, please click here for our Lift Truck Leaders Guide Kit.


 Lift Truck Training course modules:

  • Hazard Identification
  • Competency and General Responsibilities
  • Stability Principles for Forklifts & Lift Trucks
  • Pre-Operational Checks
  • Safe Operating Procedures
  • Fuel Sources
  • Electric Motor Narrow Aisle Reach Trucks

This course discusses the hazards associated with operating lift trucks (sometimes called forklifts or fork lift trucks). Hazards reviewed include equipment, material, environmental and process hazards. The responsibilities of employers, supervisors and workers are reviewed. The unusual design and operating characteristics of lift trucks including rear wheel steering, visibility issues and weight are illustrated, discussed and reviewed.

Various lift truck classifications are discussed in detail, including:

  • Class I : Electric Motor Rider Truck
  • Class II : Electric Motor Narrow Aisle Truck
  • Class III : Electric Motor Hand Truck or Hand/Rider Truck
  • Class IV : Internal Combustion Engine Truck (Solid/Cushion Tires)
  • Class V : Internal Combustion Engine Truck (Pneumatic Tires)

  • Class VII : Rough Terrain Forklifts (vertical mast, variable reach and Truck mounted)

The module on stability includes graphic illustrations of issues around the centre of gravity and the effect of the stability triangle and pyramid with various load types and mast positions including turning, reversing and braking. The need for and content of pre-operational checks are thoroughly reviewed using video. Safe operating procedures are covered extensively, including illustrative video. The characteristics of propane, battery (i.e. electric) and diesel fuel sources are included.

Upon successful completion, a 3 year Forklift/Lift Truck certificate will be issued. Practical, hands-on training within your facility must be completed and approved by your employer in order to receive full certification.

An employer must ensure that each employee who operates a Lift Truck must have both theoretical and hands-on training in the safety operation and design of a Lift Truck.


18-month Re-Training Requirement: Eighteen (18) months after training or re-training, a midterm skills evaluation should be conducted to re-assess the operator's practical skills and give them any necessary feedback or corrective actions.
