Caterpillar Dual Fuel Forklifts

Lift Truck Training
For handling materials, there are numerous types of industries which utilize powered industrial trucks. In the recycling industry, internal combustion powered forklifts are popular. Lift truck operation requires well trained operators. Training is a requirement in North America, and for good reason. A forklift can inflict personal injury or serious property damage if not safely utilized. A forklift which is loaded can weight three times as much as a car. Lift trucks are responsible for numerous industrial accidents, either as the primary or the secondary source of the accident. Reports of injuries or fatalities involving both operators or pedestrians are all too commonplace.

Training Requirement
A training program for operators must be developed and applied by employers. Additionally, the program should be based on four factors: the general principles of safe truck operation, the kinds of vehicles being utilized in the workplace, the general safety requirements, based on OSHA and the specific hazards of the workplace. Training includes both formal and practical parts. At the training's completion, operators have to pass an assessment showing they have the ability to operate the truck correctly. OSHA also requires that powered industrial truck operators must be trained in certain specified topics which apply to safe lift truck operation.
