Surrey Forklift Training Program

Surrey Forklift Training Program - The lift truck is a common powered industrial vehicle which is in wide use these days. They are sometimes referred to as hi los, lift trucks or jitneys. A departments store will use the forklift to load and unload merchandise, while warehouses would utilize them to be able to stack materials and products. And grocery stores use small models to drop supplies in the aisles. Whether transporting lumber at a sawmill or loading material at a construction site, forklift operators are required to be trained well and licensed. The priority must be on worker and pedestrian safety. This forklift training program teaches the health and safety rules governing forklifts in order to ensure their efficient and safe operation.

Forklift Training Program Safety Guidelines:

Correct training guarantees that forklift operators can maintain control of the forklift in lifting, tilting and traveling. Just trained operators should drive a forklift.

Safety guidelines when traveling - head, hands, feet, legs and arms should be kept inside the forklift truck during traveling. The forks must be low to the ground and tilted back. Observe traffic signs which are posted. Reduce speed and sound the horn if taking a corner. If the vision of the driver is blocked by the load, drive backwards slowly. Pre-check the ground for potential hazards, like for example objects, wet or oily spots, holes, rough patches, vehicles and people. Prevent stopping immediately.

If pedestrians pass across the vehicle or moves into a blind spot, the forklift must be stopped, the load lowered, waiting until the way is clear. If a load is being transported on an incline, the forks should be pointed downhill without a load and uphill with a load. The forklift should only be turned around if on level ground.

Safety tips while steering - When traveling at good speeds, never turn the steering wheel sharply. Support the load utilizing the front wheels and turn making use of the rear wheels. A truck which is overloaded will be hard to steer. Adhere to load limitations. Never add a counterweight in order to improve steering.

Safety guidelines when loading - Adhere to the recommended load and capacity restrictions of the lift truck. This information is displayed on the data plate. Always make certain that the load is positioned based on the suggested load centre. The forklift would remain stable so long as the load is kept near the front wheels.

Before inserting the forks into the pallet, the forklift mast must be in an upright position. Level the forks prior to inserting them.
