Doosan Counterbalance Forklifts

Counterbalance Forklift Training Programs
Anyone who utilizes a counterbalanced lift truck must receive training, according to Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations. Training covers a combination of classroom training and hands-on driver training. Refresher training is necessary occasionally to keep driver skills up to date. OSHA does not indicate a minimum time requirement for either the hands-on or classroom training.

Counterbalanced Forklifts
A counterbalanced lift truck balances its load using a counterbalance built into the truck. The forks move up and down parallel to the body of the truck. The blades do not pivot. Operators driving counterbalanced forklifts should have training on the specific lift trucks they will be utilizing and in a similar workplace surroundings.

Classroom Training
In classroom training, the lift truck operator will be taught about the model she or he will be operating. Information consists of specifications like height, weight and load capacity. The driver would be taught the basics of fueling or charging the lift truck, that depends on whether it is a battery-powered or gas-powered engine. Safety procedures pertaining to the particular lift truck, such as how to safely walk around the forklift, would be included.

Supervised Driving
Supervised driver training would make sure that the lift truck driver knows how to operate the counterbalanced lift truck. This practical training program will take place in the same type of setting wherein the driver will be working. The operator would train on the same type of terrain with the same kinds of nearby buildings and other structures, as well as similar vehicular and pedestrian traffic.

Refresher Training Courses
Counterbalance forklift drivers are required by OSHA to take a periodic refresher training program. However, there are no specifications as to the frequency at which a driver needs this training. However, for regular drivers, refresher training courses needs to incorporate classroom-style training.
