A powered industrial truck (PIT) is an important piece of equipment that is used to transfer material, products, machinery, etc., through the facility. When used properly, forklifts are a great asset to have. However, when operated incorrectly, they can cause tremendous damage to equipment, the property, and even your employees.
This class is designed to train designated individuals to be instructors of in-house training and certifications for powered industrial trucks. We will review how to deliver in-house training and gauge operator proficiency utilizing multiple resources (classroom presentations, hands-on exercises, written proficiency tests, etc.).
Whether you are an experienced driver with years of practice or a non-operator of forklifts, we will show you how to operate the equipment safely, work around the equipment safely, be responsible for the equipment itself, and understand what habits operators need to develop and maintain in order for safe operation to occur.
