Adams Safety Training offers one of the most comprehensive programs available for training forklift operators. The training is tailored to the specific needs of your organization and involves about 3 hours training. Topics included in a DVD presentation to help meet the Cal-OSHA requirements: Truck types Data plates Load centers The stability triangle 32 Safety rules for operating a forklift Effects of mast tilt Load stability Ramp operation Picking/placing loads Operation at loading docks in trailers and railcars Pedestrian traffic concerns Other situations unique to your operation Pre-shift inspectionRefueling/recharging A written test is part of the training and is reviewed with the operators to ensure understanding and retention of materials covered. To comply with the law and ensure that the operator has the ability to operate safely, each operator is required to pass a hands-on evaluation in the workplace on each truck type they will be assigned to operate. The method requires the operator to demonstrate proficiency in forklift operation in a manner that mirrors actual use in the workplace. This requires approximately 10 to 40 minutes per operator, per truck, in a “one-on-one” training/evaluation session.
