Train the Trainer
Lift Truck Trainer Safety Instructor Program
OSHA regulation 29 CFR 1910.178 holds EMPLOYERS responsible for ensuring that all of their lift truck operators, regardless of experience, be trained, evaluated and certified in lift truck use and operation. Those found in violation of this regulation can face fines of up to $7,000 per untrained operator.
Our Train-the-Trainer Program enables companies to provide their supervisors with the training needed to train, evaluate and issue certificates to all the lift truck operators in your company.
OSHA’s new powered industrial lift truck regulation states: “All operator training and evaluation shall be conducted by persons who have the knowledge, training, and experience to train powered industrial truck operators and evaluate their competence.” If your supervisor meets these requirements, then having your own safety instructor may be a good choice for you.
Our Train the Trainer program conducted at your facility covers:
- Causes of Accidents
- OSHA Regulations & Requirements
- Type of Trucks
- Stability Factors
- Battery Charging & Maintenance
- Propane Safety
- Pre-Shift Inspections
- Safe Operating Procedures
- Walk through of your area to point out conditions specific to where your lift is used to keep employees and lift truck operators safe
