Alberta Forklift Training Course

Forklift Training Course Alberta - Industry and federal regulators have established the criteria for forklift safety training based on their existing standards and regulations. Those wishing to use a forklift should complete a forklift training program before working with one of these machinery. The accredited Forklift Operator Training Program is intended to provide those training with the information and practical skills to become an operator of a forklift.

Vehicle and Mobile Equipment safety rules that apply to forklift use include pre-shift inspections, and regulations for loading and lifting.

Prior to a shift starting, an inspection checklist has to be done and submitted to the Instructor or Supervisor. If any maintenance issue is discovered, the equipment should not be utilized until the issue is dealt with. To be able to indicate the machinery is out of order, the keys must be removed from the ignition and a warning tag placed in a location which is visible.

Loading safety rules consist of checking the forklift nameplate's rating capacity and knowing if the load weight falls within capacity. The forklift forks should be in the down position when the forklift is starting up. Keep in mind that there is a loss of about 100 pounds carrying capacity for every inch further away from the carriage that the load is carried.

Lifting should begin with the driver moving to a stopped position roughly three inches from the load. The mast must then be leveled until it has reached a right angle with the load. Lift the forks to an inch below the slot on the pallet and drive forward. Then lift forks four inches. Tilt back the load to be able to secure it for moving. Drive the lift in reverse if the load obscures frontal vision. Check behind and honk to alert other workers. Never allow forks to drag on the ground.

Forklift loads must be loaded in such a way that they are secure and do not create a danger to other people or objects. Restraining loads is required for materials that might shift during transport and destabilize the forklift.

Drums can be strapped together to be able to prevent shifting and movement of the drums. Forklift operators must drive slowly when transporting liquids, to lessen instability in the forklift.
