Calgary Warehouse Forklift Training Programs

Calgary Warehouse Forklift Training Programs - Warehouses could be commercial, retail or industrial facilities. Their function can differ from retailing bulk products to product distribution. Regardless of the type of warehouse, staff within warehouse settings must be well trained in safety measures related to material handling and storage, loading docks, conveyor systems, and forklifts and pallet jacks. Good housekeeping is important to a safe and orderly warehouse setting.

The loading dock system is often build into the warehouse at a height from the ground making it easy to move stuff moving out and coming in of the warehouse.

Pay attention to the area around delivery trucks which are parked at the loading dock, especially the part between dock and the truck. Be sure that truck wheels are chocked when unloading.

Pallet jack operators do not need certification, but should be trained on the machinery. Training courses instruct operators in the correct ways for lifting materials and transporting them to their assigned place. Neither forklifts nor pallet jacks should ever be made use of to transport or lift workers.

Careful and slow placement of good is required to prevent accidents caused by products falling off the facing aisle. Aisles should be kept clear by keeping products flat and inside the shelving units. Pallets are used for stacking products. They must be in good condition, and palleted products must be baled or shrink-wrapped, whenever possible.

PPE or likewise referred to as personal protective equipment must be worn when required to help protect the employees' limbs, heads, feet and hands. Hard hats or bump caps, steel-toed shoes and gloves are common PPE.
