Is your forklift operator’s certificate up to date?

Ask yourself:

  • Does my operator have at least 20 hours of operation on the machine – prior to training?
  • Do they have a valid driver’s license?
  • Have they been re-certified in the past three years?

According to Worksafe BC GuidelinesOccupational Health and Safety Regulations Section 16.7(j)requires lift truck operators to be trained by a qualified trainer in accordance with CSA Standard B335.15, Industrial Lift Truck Operator Training. The standard also stipulates that “a lift truck operator must take a refresher course at least every three years, or if there is an accident or incident attributable to operator error.”

Also, for the equipment to be compliant it must be safety checked every 250 hours or a minimum of 6 months and must have proper working safety equipment.  As stated in the same section “Maintenance records for any service, repair or modification which affects the safe performance of the equipment must be maintained and be reasonably available to the operator and maintenance personal during work hours.”

Re:  Forklift Operator Training CSA B335.15   “Three Year Ticket”


My name is Anthony and I am an ‘Ives” Certified Trainer for mobile equipment with B&D Lift Truck Services.  I help train your employees at your location, on your equipment, as per CSA and WorkSafe BC guidelines at your convenience.

Costs for new forklift operators:

– $425 for One trainee, $225 each for Two trainees, $175 each for Three trainees, and $150 each for Four or more trainees, a maximum of ten per class.

– A $30 per trainee CSA – Operator Reference Manual will also be charged.

– Recertification: First 5 $100.00 each, 6-10 $75.00 each.

Health and safety guidelines require social distancing of 2 meters apart. Masks must be worn if the distancing cannot be achieved. Sanitizing the equipment between evaluations will be the employer’s responsibility.

It is strongly recommended that you the employer assess your trainee candidates for forklift training. They should have a rudimentary knowledge of the equipment, and a minimum of 8 hours of seat time on the equipment. In the past, I have found a few new trainees developed dizziness and vertigo symptoms from the rapid tail swing of the forklifts. Trainees also need to have appropriate vision eyewear and PPE before getting on the machine.

We are NOT a “Driving School”. Most of the training is classroom time, with a short evaluation on the machine.  Trainees must read and speak functional English.

Thank you and kind regards.
