Behind the scenes: Forklift Certification Training

At the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum (TVRM), our commitment to preserving the rich traditions of the railway system extends beyond mere exhibitions and ride experiences. This week, we underscored this commitment by conducting comprehensive forklift training for our team, a critical component of our behind-the-scenes operations that ensures both safety and efficiency in our museum activities.

What Is the Importance of Certification in Historical Train Operations? Certification in areas such as forklift operations and train handling is not merely procedural. It represents the museum’s dedication to upholding high standards in cultural heritage management and operational safety. These certifications ensure that the individuals handling these significant tasks are not only skilled but are also recognized by professional bodies for their expertise, further enhancing the museum’s credibility.

For anyone interested in the specifics of forklift certification or the historical significance of railway operations, we recommend visiting OSHA’s official forklift training guidelines and exploring resources like the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania for a deeper understanding of railway heritage.
