What are the Manitoba Workplace Operator Regulations?

Manitoba Regulations for Forklift Operators:

22.29 (1) No employer shall require or permit a worker to operate a powered lift truck unless the employer has issued a certificate to the worker under this section.

22.29 (2) No employer shall issue a certificate to a worker to operate a powered lift truck unless the employer has first ensured that the worker
(a) Has received instruction, training, and testing in the operation of the powered lift truck in accordance with a code of practice approved and issued under the Act.

Will a Blended Program Meet Manitoba WS&H Regulations?

Short answer.  Yes.  The standards require that you train and certify operators with 2 basic elements.  These elements are theory training and practical training on the equipment that the operators use.

The blended program gives you flexibility that you might not get with  a traditional forklift course.

Your operators complete the theory training online and our trainer comes to the jobsite to complete the practical training and evaluation.

What Is The Training Standard?

Depending on the mobile equipment, the standards that are referred to by Regulations are the CSA and ANSI standards. (Canadian Standards Association and American National Standards Institute.  Each province will refer to one or both standards. In Manitoba both standards are recognized and IBR (incorporated By Reference).

How Does the Blended Course Work?

Theory training

Your operator completes the online training on a computer, tablet or smart phone.  During the course they will complete mini quizzes and have a final quiz at the end of the course.  Once they pass, they move on to the practical, in person part of training on the equipment.

Practical Training

Our trainer comes onsite and trains your operator in their working environment and on the equipment they use.  When the operator shows they are comfortable and the trainer is confident they can operate safely.  The trainer evaluates their ability to operate the equipment.  The trainer makes sure they can inspect, safely operate, and shutdown and park the unit properly.

How Long Does the Course Take?

Online training can take approximately 2-2.5 hours if they go through the course without stopping.  However, he/she has the option to start and stop at any point in the course to take care of their other work responsibilities.

Onsite practical usually takes a 1/2 hour to 1 hour.  But it depends on the skill level of the operator.  We want to make sure you operator is competent to use the equipment efficiently and safely.  If they need more time with the trainer.  We give them more time.

Benefits Of Online Forklift Training?

Many employers are turning to a blended training program that combines practical online theory with practical training.

Online training provides convenience for employees to complete necessary theory training on their own time on any internet-connected device. Online forklift theory also helps the trainer create a custom training program specific to an employer’s equipment and unique workplace.

The benefit of this approach is that employers can train multiple employees at the same time, without having all of their employees in the training room. Its a great way to keep production moving while practical training is being completed.

Onsite training also reduces operating costs, since employees can train when time permits or on their own time. Our customer’s also see savings in terms of wages, travel costs, and overall downtime.

When Does A Forklift License Expire?

Operators are certified for three years after the date of the training. We retrain experienced operators as well as rookies. We both know they have different needs than beginners. We treat them accordingly. It makes sense that after an incident or their certification expires, we will train them based on their level of experience and the type of incident that they were involved in.
Our forklift training courses and refresher programs are tailored to the needs of the forklift operator and their employers. With a blended online forklift program, we usually need a half-hour maximum with each experienced operator.
The program focuses on the fundamentals of forklift operation. It addresses bad habits the employee has picked up over the years. We strongly encourage employers to let us know if they have any concerns when we schedule training.

What Is Your Minimum Number Of Trainees?

We don’t actually have a minimum with blended online courses.    If you chose a single course for one operator the cost is $235.00. Plus any travel cost outside of the city perimeter.

When Can We Get Forklift Training Done?

At Onsite, we don’t believe in rigid schedules or making you wait any longer than absolutely necessary.  Time in your industry equals money.    We book on demand to keep our service a practical choice for you.

How much does it cost?

Our courses are priced from $195.00 for a single course to $395.00 for three combined courses per operator.  You can also create a customized bundle of courses that work for you.
