There are approximately 4,000 Fatalities due to Industrial accidents every year in the USA. From these accidents there 250 fatalities due to Forklift Accidents alone. It is very important that companies MUST follow OSHA Safety rules as part of their daily activities.
There is very affordable to ensure employees receive the proper Forklift Safety Training. One of the largest providers in the USA and Canada is Forklift Academy. You can find information on the website www.forkliftacademy.com

FL license? Forklift license? There is no such thing as a forklift license. Most forklifts are used only by businesses, like Menards, and usually don't require a "forklift license." Most businesses train their employees in how to operate a forklift, More often then not the only license that's required is a valid drivers license and that they be 18yo and older.
I work at Lowe's and all power equipment operators are required to pass a test and certification to operate power equipment. Also, we are not allowed to use equipment during store hours unless we have a spotter with us at al times. Dunno how home depot does it but i think i did see two people at a time there as well.
