Among the different types of Industrial Lift trucks discussed, each type has nuances and principles of safety that are important, as well as providing operator instructions. In our experience, lift truck operators generally understand the operational practices yet are often untrained in safety principles, such as the Safety Pyramid (aka Safety Triangle) as well as gauging the weight of loads and clearances.
ARC Enterprises strongly adheres to providing both the theory, principles of safe operation and operational competency into the training. Trainers are OSHA certified under the Ives Training Program, and training for counterbalanced lift trucks consists of approximately 75% classroom and 25% practical hands-on training. In order to pass the course operators must demonstrate competency and safe practices with the types of lift trucks normally used. The employer gets feedback on the performance of each employee, and each employee receives a certification card after passing the course.
