The Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA, ss 7 and 8) states that only trained and authorized persons 16 years of age and older, including supervisory and non-supervisory personnel, may use forklifts (18 years for use on construction sites). It is the responsibility of the employer (LSST, section 51) to ensure that all operators have the appropriate training and certification necessary for the safe use of equipment in the workplace.
