Power Mobile Equipment (PME)
Please Note: To better serve you, our Powered Mobile Equipment curriculum is being redeveloped into a Blended Learning Model which will combine online training with on-location operator evaluations. This transition requires a temporary interruption (approx. 4 months) of the delivery of our Power Mobile Equipment Operator and Trainer level courses. We apologize for any inconvenience to you and your organization.
Occupational Health and Safety Regulations require employers to ensure that only trained and competent operators are permitted to operate powered mobile equipment.
Training must meet specific requirements outlined in Section 154 and Table 14.1 of the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations. A minimum of 16 hours combined theory and practical training is required on all powered mobile equipment.
The Saskatchewan Safety Council offers the necessary training to meet these regulations through classroom lectures, workbook components, videos, and individual coaching on the equipment. Student to instructor ratio is low and no recertification is required for operators unless otherwise noted.
The Saskatchewan Safety Council can accommodate your training needs to ensure operators use proper and safe techniques. We provide training on a wide variety of equipment, not all of which is listed on our site.
We provide on-site training to operators, instructors and evaluators of Power Mobile Equipment (including but not limited to: Forklifts, Variable Reach Material Handlers, Aerial Work Platforms, Ag Tractors, Skid Steer Loaders, Lawn Mowers and Loaders) at their place of business on the equipment that they will be expected to operate. Training on the equipment that will be used creates the most successful training results for new operators. Power Mobile Equipment (PME) equipment must be in safe operating condition and meet all safety standards and regulations. Customers are expected to provide a safe open area to operate the PME type and if required, some items or products to handle with the forks or buckets (if applicable). We also require an onsite facility in which we can deliver the theory (classroom) portion of the training.
Training duration and costs are based on the number of participants and the level of operator experience which may be impacted by the number of equipment attachments.
Unless otherwise stated, our power mobile equipment training certificates do not expire.
