Caterpillar Dual Fuel Forklifts
Lift Truck Training
For handling materials, there are many types of industries that make use of powered industrial trucks. In the recycling industry, internal combustion powered forklifts are popular. Lift truck operation requires well trained operators. In North America, training is a requirement, and for good reason. A forklift can cause personal injury or serious property damage if not safely operated. A forklift that is loaded can weight three times as much as an automobile. Lift trucks are accountable for many industrial accidents, either as the primary or the secondary source of the accident. Reports of injuries or fatalities involving both operators or pedestrians are all too commonplace.
Employers must develop and implement a training program for operators based on four factors: the general principles of safe truck operation, the types of vehicles being utilized in the workplace, the certain hazards of the workplace and the general safety requirements, according to OSHA. Training combines both practical and formal components. At the training's completion, operators must 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 topics that is applicable to safe lift truck operation.
