Lift Truck Training
For handling materials, there are numerous kinds of industries which utilize powered industrial trucks. In the recycling business, internal combustion powered forklifts are normally used. Lift truck operation need well trained operators. Training is a requirement within North America, and for a very good reason. A forklift can cause serious property damage or personal injury if not safely utilized. A loaded forklift can weight three times as much as a motor vehicle. Lift trucks are responsible for a large percentage of industrial accidents, either as the primary or the secondary source of the accident. Reports of fatalities or injuries involving both pedestrians or operators are all too commonplace.
Employers should develop and apply a training program for operators based on four factors: the types of vehicles being used within the workplace, the general principles of safe truck operation, the specific hazards of the workplace and the general safety requirements, based on OSHA. Training includes both practical and formal components. At the training's completion, operators have to pass an assessment showing they have the ability to properly operate a truck. OSHA also requires that powered industrial truck operators must be trained in certain specific subject matters that apply to safe lift truck operation.
