Norlift's SAFETY Training Program

Norlift of Oregon, Inc. is a provider of training and certification services for forklift and warehouse equipment operators.  We have been training equipment operators since 1999, when the current OSHA law requiring certification of forklift and scissor lift operators was created. Our training programs can be conducted anywhere throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington, including Portland, Vancouver, Salem, Eugene, the coast, and all areas in between. Your operators will receive the most up-to-date training in accordance with Local, State, and Federal OSHA rules and regulations.

We train on all types of warehouse equipment, including electric and propane sit-down forklifts, electric stand-up and reach forklifts, order pickers, pallet jacks, scissor lifts, yard tractors, and many more.  Our training covers equipment within ITA classifications Class I through Class V and yard tractors (Class VI).
