As per the CSA & WCB requirements, forklift Operators must be retrained at intervals no longer than every two years. Therefore, our forklift certificates expire two years after they’re awarded, or if you are involved in an accident while operating a forklift. Additionally, employers may be required to evaluate their forklift operators under specific circumstances in accordance with their jurisdiction’s legislation.
