Heavy Equipment Operator Training

English & Spanish Classes Available

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) only requires certain equipment operators to be certified. Those equipment operators are employees who run hazardous equipment such as cranes, industrial trucks and large construction equipment.

OSHA does recommend that all equipment operators be trained to become proficient in the operation of a particular piece of equipment. This training is determined by the employer.

Heavy equipment operators that run large pieces of construction equipment such as bulldozers, graders or ground moving equipment, are required to be certified according to the OSHA standards.

These OSHA standards are developed to ensure the safety of all employees working on the construction site. The heavy equipment used on constructions sites are the cause of most injuries during the construction of roads or commercial properties, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

OSHA has determined that the certification of these operators cuts down on the accidents caused by unqualified heavy equipment operators. The operators must be certified to operate the specific piece of heavy equipment by a qualified trainer at the company or by a third-party training company. There is no specific name other than the heavy equipment operator is licensed to operator a particular type of heavy equipment.
