A Detailed Overview from OSHA on Powered Industrial Trucks can be found here.
Forklift operator training delivered at your site, using your equipment. Our ‘site-specific’ training consists of a combination of formal instruction (e.g. lecture, discussion and written material); practical training (demonstrations performed by the trainer and exercises performed by the trainee); and evaluation of the operator’s performance in the workplace.
The 4-hour class includes a visual presentation and discussion on Powered Industrial Truck and workplace related topics covered by OSHA 29 CFR 1910.178, review of the Operator Manual, a Pre-Shift Inspection and Operator performance evaluation. During the practical training, the trainees complete a Pre-Shift inspection on the equipment as a group to ensure operators know how to complete the required task. A series of operational functionality tasks is defined then outlined for each operator as they are evaluated.
Special Attachment training (if required) is also incorporated into the program, let us know which attachments you have when calling to get a quote and scheduling the training.
Upon completion, the operator is issued an AWPI Certification and identification card - valid for three years. The training certification meets or exceeds the standards outlined by OSHA standards 29CFR.1910
However, the term “rough terrain” does not imply that the
forklift can be safely operated on every conceivable type of terrain.
This is an example of a ruggedly constructed forklift and is designed to be used primarily outdoors.
This is an example of a vehicle equipped with a telescoping boom, which enables it to pick and place loads at various distances and lift heights in front of the machine. The ability to reach out in front of the forklift allows the operator flexibility in the placement of a load.
This Powered Industrial Truck is also known by the names "Telehandler" and "Lull."
This is an example of a portable self-propelled rough terrain forklift that is typically transported to the job site. It is mounted on a carrier to the back of a truck/trailer and is used to unload heavy items from the truck/trailer at the job site. Note that not all truck/trailer mounted forklifts are rough terrain forklifts.
