Surrey Forklift Training Schools - Forklift Training Schools - For The Wellbeing Of Your Staff
Are you searching for a job as a forklift driver? Our regulatory-compliant mobile equipment operator training provides instruction in types of forklifts, pre-shift inspection, fuel kinds and dealing with fuels, and safe operation of a forklift. Hands-on, practical training helps individuals participating in obtaining basic operational skills. Program content consists of existing rules governing the utilization of forklifts. Our proven forklift courses are designed to offer training on these types of trucks: narrow isle forklift, counterbalanced forklift and powered pallet truck.
Do not raise or lower the fork while the forklift is moving. A load must not extend higher than the backrest because of the risk of the load sliding back in the direction of the operator. Check for overhead obstructions and ensure there is adequate clearance before lifting a load. Stay away from overhead power lines. When the load is raised straight up, tilt it back slightly.
The lift truck is less stable if a load is in a raised position. Make certain that no body ever walks underneath the elevated fork. The operator must not leave the lift truck when the load is lifted.
While handling pallets, forks should be level and high enough to go into the pallet and extend all the way below the load. The width of the forks must provide even distribution of weight.
Prior to loading or unloading the truck, set the brakes and chock the wheels. Floors should 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. Mark edges of ramps, docks or rail cars and avoid them.
