Caterpillar Dual Fuel Forklifts
Lift Truck Training
For handling materials, there are numerous types of industries that use powered industrial trucks. In the recycling industry, internal combustion powered forklifts are normally utilized. Lift truck operation requires operators who are well trained. Training is a requirement within North America, and for a very good reason. A forklift could cause serious damage to property or personal injury if not operated safely. A loaded forklift could weight three times as much as a motor vehicle. Lift trucks are accountable for numerous industrial accidents, either as the secondary or the primary source of the accident. Reports of fatalities or injuries which involve pedestrians or operators are all too commonplace.
Employers should develop and implement 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 general safety requirements, based on OSHA and the particular hazards of the workplace. Training combines both formal and practical parts. At the training's completion, operators should pass an assessment showing they have the ability to correctly operate a truck. OSHA also requires that powered industrial truck operators should be trained in certain specified topics which apply to safely operating a lift truck.
