Safe Operation of a Lift Truck Train the Trainer

Lift Trucks and mobile equipment accidents are preventable and unacceptable. Competent instruction is a key component to achieving a desired result of zero incidents with lift truck operations.

Current standards require that any individual teaching the course is familiar with lift truck applications, limitations and restrictions. Our program will teach participants how to facilitate their own class on how to recognize and control hazards associated with the equipment and the environment in which they are operated in as well as the safe operating principles and procedures of the equipment.

Our Safe Operation of a Lift Truck program is designed in accordance with CSA B335-04 Safety Standard for Lift Trucks.

Instructors must also be competent operators. In order to receive a Certificate of Competency, the participant must achieve a passing grade on the written in-class test and the practical skills evaluation.

The practical skills evaluation is to be performed at the workers place of employment.

The course is broken down into the following content modules:

  • Hazard Identification

  • Competency and General Responsibilities

  • Stability Principles

  • Pre-Operational Checks

  • Safe Operating Procedures

  • Fuel Sources

  • Question and Answer
