Forklift Training Schools Alberta - What Are Included In Our Forklift Training Schools
Are you looking for work as a forklift driver? Our regulatory-compliant mobile equipment operator training offers instruction in kinds of forklifts, pre-shift check, fuel types and handling of fuels, and safe operation of a lift truck. Practical, hands-on training helps individuals participating in acquiring essential operational skills. Course content covers existing rules governing the utilization of lift trucks. Our proven forklift courses are designed to offer training on these types of trucks: narrow isle forklift, counterbalanced forklift and powered pallet truck.
When the lift truck is in operation, do not lower or raise the forks. Loads must not extend over the backrest. This is due to the possibility of the load sliding back towards the operator. Check for overhead obstacles and ensure there is enough clearance before raising a load. Stay away from overhead power lines. When the load is lifted straight up, tilt it back slightly.
The lift truck is less stable if a load is in a raised position. Make sure that no body ever walks below 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 under the load. The width of the forks should provide even distribution of weight.
Prior to loading or unloading the truck, chock the wheels and set the brakes. Floors have to be strong enough to support the weight of the load and the forklift combined. Fixed jacks could be installed to support a semi-trailer which is not attached to a tractor. The height of the entrance door should clear the forklift height by a minimum of 5 cm. Mark edges of docks, rail cars or ramps and avoid them.
