10 May Training:
Anderson Forklift is well-stocked with efficient and modern forklifts and also quality used machines, but the service doesn’t stop there. With twenty-five years of experience (in fact currently celebrating the twenty-fifth anniversary), Anderson Forklift also offers training in Forklift use and care. Why is this important? Because a forklift in the hands of an operator with little-to-no experience is dangerous. The training methods prepare a potential or inexperienced forklift operator to understand the inherent hazards in the operation of the machinery; every forklift operator should understand the ins and outs of his or her machine, especially the process of operation to the machine’s safety equipment. The courses offered include both hands-on type training and classroom time.
The courses focus on the operator’s responsibilities; a forklift operator’s responsibilities are more than just the piloting of the machine. He or she will learn how to perform a pre-start inspection: check the machine to ensure that everything is in perfect working order; check the machine’s fluids/battery levels; how to address the problems he or she may find. The course will also focus on how to conduct a workplace inspection: things to consider around the warehouse that may pose a potential problem/safety hazard to the forklift operator and other employees. Experienced lessons involving the prevention of forklift accidents and identifying the potential hazards of forklift operation—for someone new to forklift operation, a lesson developed by and taught by an experienced forklift operator is invaluable to the potential successes in safety and in business at a warehouse. This includes how to see the potential to warehouse hazards and how to address those hazards before an accident occurs.
There are teaching material provided for the class, including a safety guidelines booklet that may continue to be an invaluable reference to a forklift operator even after the course ends. Also, those who complete the course will receive a wallet-sized card that he or she may show to potential employers.
