Mount Vernon Forklift Training Program

Marysville Forklift Training Program - The forklift is a common powered industrial vehicle which is in wide use nowadays. They are occasionally referred to as jitneys, hi los or lift trucks. A departments store will utilize the forklift to be able to load and unload products, while warehouses would utilize them in order to stack products and materials. And grocery stores make use of small models to drop stock in the aisles. Whether loading material at a construction site or transporting lumber at a sawmill, operators of forklifts should be well trained and certified. The main concern should be on the safety of the worker and pedestrian. This forklift training program teaches the health and safety rules governing forklifts in order to ensure their safe and efficient utilization.

Forklift Training Program Safety Tips:

Forklift training courses are meant to ensure that the operator is able to control the forklift safely throughout lifting, tilting and traveling. Only qualified operators should operate a forklift.

While the forklift is in operation; arms, hands, head, legs and feet should be kept in the forklift. Forklift forks should be kept low to the ground while being slightly tilted back. Observe posted traffic signs. Decrease speed and sound the horn if taking a corner. If the driver's vision is blocked by the load, slowly drive in reverse. Pre-inspect the ground for potential hazards, like for instance objects, wet or oily spots, holes, rough patches, vehicles and people. Avoid sudden stops.

If pedestrians pass across the vehicle or moves into a blind spot, the forklift should be stopped, the load lowered, waiting until the path is clear. If a load is being transported on an incline, the forks must be pointed downhill without a load and uphill with a load. The lift truck must only be turned around when on level ground.

Safety tips while steering - Never turn the steering wheel sharply when traveling fast. Turn making use of the back wheels and support the load by the front wheels. A truck which is overloaded will be hard to steer. Follow load restrictions. Never add a counterweight as a way to improve steering.

Safety guidelines while loading - Follow the suggested load and capacity restrictions of the forklift. This information is displayed on the data plate. Always ensure that the load is placed according to the suggested load centre. The lift truck will remain stable so long as the load is kept near the front wheels.

Prior to inserting the forks into the pallet, the mast of the forklift must be in an upright position. Level the forks before inserting them.
