Calgary Forklift Training Programs

Calgary Forklift Training Programs - Are you searching for work as a driver of a forklift? Our regulatory-compliant mobile equipment operator training offers instruction in types of forklifts, pre-shift check, fuel types and dealing with fuels, and safe utilization of a lift truck. Practical, hands-on training helps participants in obtaining basic operational skills. Course content covers existing rules governing the use of lift trucks. Our proven forklift courses are designed to offer training on these types of trucks: powered pallet truck, narrow isle forklift and counterbalanced forklift.

How to Safely Handle Loads

Whilst the forklift is in use, do not lower or raise the forks. Loads must not extend above the backrest. This is due to the danger of the load sliding back towards the operator. Check for overhead obstructions and ensure there is enough clearance before lifting a load. Stay away from overhead power lines. Once the load is lifted straight up, tilt it back slightly.

The lift truck is less stable when a load is in a raised position. Ensure that no body ever walks underneath the elevated fork. The operator should not leave the forklift when the load is lifted.

The forks must be level when handling pallets, and high enough to extend all the way into and underneath the load. The width of the forks should provide equal weight distribution.

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 can be installed to be able to support a semi-trailer which is not coupled to a tractor. The entrance door height should clear the height of the forklift by at least 5 cm. Mark edges of rail cars, ramps or docks and avoid them.

Do not stay in a forklift for long periods without right ventilation. The inside of the truck must be well lighted and free of obstructions, trash and loose objects. Check for holes in the floor. The installation of material that are non-slip on the floor would help prevent slipping. Clear whichever obstructions from dockplates and docks and make sure surfaces are not oily or wet.

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