Forklift Training Programs Vancouver

Forklift Training Programs Vancouver - If you are searching for work as a forklift operator, our regulatory-compliant lift truck training programs provide excellent instruction in numerous styles and types of lift trucks, classes on pre-shift check, fuel kinds and handling of fuels, and safe use of a forklift. Hands-on, practical training assists participants in obtaining essential operational skills. Program content includes current rules governing the use of forklifts. Our proven forklift courses are designed to provide training on these types of trucks: counterbalanced forklift, powered pallet trucks and narrow isle forklift.

How to Safely Handle Loads

Do not lower or raise the fork while the forklift is traveling. A load must not extend higher than the backrest due to the danger of the load sliding back toward the operator. Check for overhead obstructions and ensure there is sufficient clearance prior to raising a load. Stay away from overhead power lines. When the load is lifted straight up, tilt it slightly back.

When the load is lifted the forklift will be less stable. Make sure that no pedestrians cross beneath the elevated fork. The operator must not leave the lift truck when the load is raised.

While handling pallets, forks should be high and level enough to go into the pallet and extend all the way beneath the load. The fork's width should provide even distribution of weight.

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

If there is not proper ventilation into the forklift, do not stay in there for extended periods. The interior of the truck should have adequate lighting and be obstruction free. Inspect the flooring of the forklift cab for holes. The installation of nonslip material on the floor will help avoid slipping. Clear whichever obstacles from dockplates and docks and ensure surfaces are not oily or wet.

Lift trucks should not be utilized to tow or push other forklifts.
