  • Design exercises to evaluate actual hands-on performance by your operators.

Why you should attend

Over 95,000 people are injured and millions of dollars are lost each year in forklift incidents. Now you must comply with OSHA’s new training standards, aimed at greatly reducing those injury statistics and related costs. At this course you’ll become familiar with Coaching the Lift Truck OperatorTM, a comprehensive program updated to cover all aspects of lift truck operation, including:

  • Operator training definitions from OSHA and NIOSH
  • Lift truck design
  • Vehicle safety inspections
  • Moving with and without a load
  • Picking up and stacking a load
  • Utilizing scanning techniques
  • Special considerations such as trailers, ramps, and elevators
  • Pedestrian safety (for non-operators who work around lift trucks)

You'll take the program with you

Not only do you learn how to use Coaching the Lift Truck OperatorTM, but you also receive the teaching materials you need to get started with the program back at your facility. Additional attendees from the same organization may attend at a reduced fee and receive only the leader's guide and one operator response book.
