Forklift safety training is important for any company which operates forklifts. Forklifts can be beneficial, but they can also result in serious accidents, some of which can even be fatal. In order to avoid such accidents, forklift safety training is necessary.
Forklift training programs typically cover a variety of different safety principles. The types of modules that are commonly covered in forklift safety training include travel procedures, how to safely load materials, how to safely approach ramps and loading docks and how to operate the truck. In addition, forklift operators are also frequently provided with a daily checklist that they can use to ensure that the truck is in good operating condition and to ensure that no safety procedures have been overlooked in the operation of the truck. Hands-on sessions are also commonly used in order to clearly demonstrate safe operating procedures.
