This course prepares the experienced forklift operator to develop and teach a complete in-house training program. Powered industrial trucks, or forklifts, are an essential piece of equipment in many workplaces, but they account for more industrial accidents than any other type of equipment. This course provides an overview of basic forklift usage and strict safety guidelines, using both classroom instruction and a hands-on session during which students will operate a forklift in an industrial setting. Topics include: pre-start inspection, load principles, setting the load, OSHA standards and requirements, design considerations, picking up and moving the load, pedestrian safety, accident files and record keeping.
