Onsite Heavy Equipment Operator Licensing Training/On-Site Train the Trainer Training
On-Site Safety Training, Get Your Crew OSHA Compliant
Our OSHA compliant onsite trainer will come to your worksite and take care of all your heavy equipment operator licensing training (safety training webinars also available). Get your workers trained for OSHA safety compliance. We come to you from Rexburg, Idaho (travel costs are included, so 5-10+ trainees are recommended) to train your workers on your own equipment. On site Training is a great option if you prefer not to do your own classroom training or online training. This hands-on training is taught by our experienced OSHA-compliant trainer professionally and quickly. We offer onsite health and safety training for nearly every training topic we offer (100+) including hands-on forklift, crane, excavator, CPR, lead, asbestos, confined space, and more. You can find a complete list of our training topics on our topics page. Of course, we can conduct onsite training for more than one topic during your on site training class.

Onsite Training FAQs:
Can we send an employee to your site for training?
On occasion, we do host classes at our site, but we prefer to travel to your site. Technically, heavy equipment operators should be trained on the equipment they will be using similar to the actual working conditions they will encounter day in and day out. If your operators work on docks or vessels, in warehouses, or on a construction site, receiving training in a classroom and then operating a machine in a parking lot may not suffice. At the same time, no one knows their employees, equipment, and site better than employers. OSHA places the ultimate responsibility to train operators and trainers on the shoulders of the employer. We are a resource for you to use. Feel free to reach out to discuss the needs of your employees, trainers, and business.
How many students can we have in our on site operator or on site Train the Trainer class?
We do not necessarily like to place a limit on the on-site training class without knowing the situation. Ultimately it depends on the level of experience of the operators, as well as how we decide to structure the class based on your needs. Typically, though, we do not like to stay around 12-15 individuals in a class. TThis allows us the time we need to focus on everyone individually. It will also give participants extra time on and around the machine during the hands-on training portion of the class. Exceptions can be made on a case-by-case basis.
Do you offer any online train the trainer classes?
Yes, we do offer online train the trainer courses. While it does not allow for any actual time around the equipment (which is not required for trainer certification anyway), it can be a very cost-effective way to go and save you on travel expenses, etc.
How do you structure your onsite training classes?
This will depend on a number of variables, but this is the format our courses normally follow.
- Classroom portion
- Written exam
- Observation portion/Practical exam
However, since the ultimate responsibility to approve training falls on you, the employer, we like to make you a part of the decision process. If you want us to spend more time outside on the machine, then we can do that. If you want us to go into more detail on theory, we can do that too. This is your company, your employees; and we are simply here to help you get them trained in the most effective way possible.
What do we get with the onsite training classes?
At the end of the operator onsite training classes, you will receive the following documents and materials for your records.
- Full-sized certificate of OSHA compliant training
- Wallet cards for individuals per request
- DIY Kit training materials for Train the Trainers
Is an on site Train the Trainer class required by OSHA?
There is a lot of confusion, and many companies think train the trainer classes are required. However, the bottom line is they are not required by OSHA. If OSHA were to come in, the employer would need to prove why your trainer is qualified (experience, knowledge, certification, etc.). If your company requires train the trainers, Hard Hat Training offers quality content to help you meet these requirements.
What if I cannot afford onsite training?
If you are looking for a low-cost option, you may consider purchasing our training kits. These contain all the materials we use when we certify operators, just like with onsite training. They are yours to use, reuse, and customize for your own in-house training needs. They also include instructor notes.
