Surrey Forklift Training Programs

Surrey Forklift Training Programs - If you are searching for a job as a forklift operator, our regulatory-compliant forklift training programs provide excellent instruction in many types and styles of lift trucks, lessons on pre-shift check, fuel kinds and handling of fuels, and safe operation of a forklift. Practical, hands-on training assists individuals participating in acquiring essential operational skills. Course content covers current rules governing the use of lift trucks. Our proven forklift courses are designed to provide training on these types of trucks: narrow isle forklift, counterbalanced forklift and powered pallet truck.

How to Safely Handle Loads

Do not lower or raise the fork while the forklift is moving. A load must not extend above the backrest because of the risk of the load sliding back in the direction of the operator. Inspect for overhead obstacles and ensure there is plenty of clearance before lifting a load. Stay away from overhead power lines. Once the load is lifted straight up, tilt it slightly back.

The lift truck is less steady if a load is in a raised position. Make certain that no one ever walks below the elevated fork. The operator must not leave the forklift when the load is lifted.

The forks must be level when handling pallets, and high enough to extend all the way into and beneath the load. The width of the forks should provide equal distribution of weight.

Before unloading or loading the truck, chock the wheels and set the brakes. Floors must be strong enough to support the weight of the load and the forklift combined. Fixed jacks could be installed to be able to support a semi-trailer which is not attached to a tractor. The entrance door height must clear the forklift height by a minimum of 5 cm. Edges of rail cars, ramps and docks must be marked and avoid them.

Do not stay in a forklift for a long time without correct ventilation. The interior of the truck must be properly lighted and free of loose objects, obstructions and trash. Inspect for holes in the floor. The installation of material that are non-slip on the floor will help avoid slipping. Clear any obstacles from dockplates and docks and ensure surfaces are not wet or oily.

Never push or tow other vehicles using a forklift.
