National Forklift Safety Day 2023

At, the leader in online OSHA forklift compliance and training, every day is forklift safety day – for our company and our many clients across the United States.

Our online forklift certification programs give every company the opportunity to certify all their forklift drivers. We provide a convenient online format for students, and help empower employers to take control of their own internal safety initiatives. Best of all, we keep our forklift certification costs super low, so anyone can afford to achieve OSHA compliance!

OSHA requires that all employers who hire forklift drivers provide training and certification. It’s against the law to have anyone operate a forklift, pallet jack, or other powered industrial truck without OSHA-approved training. With, all of your training and certification requirements are taken care of.

For this blog article, we’ll focus on this year’s National Forklift Safety Day – the perfect time to assess your safety program, and address any issues with your forklift fleet. By raising awareness about his significant event, we can hopefully help address and fix any non-compliance problems and avoid accidents and on-the-job injuries.

What is Forklift Safety Day?

The first National Forklift Safety Day occurred in 2014. It was started to provide a forum for the trends, events, technology, and other issues that impact forklift safety on a daily basis. National Forklift Safety Day is the only event that gathers safety rule legislators, safety managers & consultants, industry & manufacturing personnel, and other executives within the forklift industry. Since its inception in 2014, forklift safety day has grown considerably, and has helped draw attention to the many issues surrounding forklift safety.

This year’s conference, National Forklift Safety Day 2023, is the tenth annual event. And since forklift safety is so important, the 2023 edition of forklift safety day is actually two days! The conferences and events, scheduled for Monday, June 12, and Tuesday, June 13th in Washington, DC, are open to the public and free of charge, similar to past National Forklift Safety Days. The upcoming National Forklift Safety Day will include an educational session, overview of Congressional activity & legislation, Congressional meetings, and speeches about forklift safety & industry trends, courtesy of the National Press Club.

These are just some reasons why forklift certification and training are important. Plus, given the numerous hazards associated with driving a forklift – tip-overs, pedestrian accidents, collisions, etc. – it simply makes sense to have your workforce up to date and fully certified for the latest OSHA safety regulations. has the training, resources, and customer support to help your drivers avoid accidents and confidently operate your powered industrial trucks. When your company has a forklift accident, there are plenty of related “hidden” costs.
