The key to a safe work environment is to promote safe work habits and provide appropriate training for everyone. Most of us understand this, yet OSHA continues to cite thousands of safety violations each year, many of them serious in nature. (Read OSHA's Top 10 citations for fiscal year 2021.)

Eastern Lift Truck Co. has developed its own culture of safety into one of the most comprehensive OSHA-compliant forklift training and certification programs in the United States. Our trainers average 25 years of industry experience and are passionate about safety. On any given day, you will find us leading material handling training sessions throughout Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington D.C., West Virginia and beyond. Please contact us to schedule a class at your facility.

COVID Statement: currently, all "in-house" training (at ELTC facilities) is on pause. However, our trainers continue to travel to customer locations and perform important “on-site” training sessions, under relevant CDC health guidelines.

Individuals interested in our popular “in-house” training classes are asked to check this page for ongoing updates. We anticipate the resumption of training sessions at specific ELTC branches in 2022. Stay safe. Keep healthy.

Let Us Help You Find What You Need

  • Forklift Operator Training

    Making sure your forklift operators are familiar with the proper operation of your industrial equipment is the best way to improve employee safety and prevent damage to your facility. We offer OSHA-compliant in-house operator training for all classes of forklifts, rough terrain equipment (straight-mast and telescopic handlers), mobile elevating work platforms (scissors, booms, and man-lifts), as well as earthmoving and mining equipment (skid-steers, backhoes) at the following facilities: Allentown, Warminster, and York PA; Maple Shade, NJ and Baltimore, MD. We will also travel to your location for training along the East Coast.

  • Train the Trainer

    Our “Train the Trainer” course is intended for anyone who is responsible for training powered industrial lift operators. The course explains how to design a lift truck training program and how to present this program to your forklift drivers in a positive manner. We include all classroom materials, handouts and a sample post-test for Basic Operator Training.
