Forklift Driver Training
If you’re a business owner in or around Toronto who uses forklifts, you need to make sure that your drivers are properly trained in driving forklift. At Modern Forklift, we can help you with that training.
Why forklift driver training?
Driver trainer for forklift operators is important in order to maintain a safe working environment and a safe operating forklift. This will keep you in compliance with OSHA as well so you won’t have to worry about costly fines.
All your drivers, from first time drivers to experienced drivers can benefit from driver training. You can learn important skills to help your drivers and your business grow.
We understand that businesses in Toronto have different forklift needs and we train your drivers on the style of forklift you purchase be it diesel, liquid propane, or electric powered. Front forks, side load, extended reach, counterbalance, and so on all have their own unique handling issues that your drivers need to understand. If you have more than one type of forklift we can help train your drivers for each type.
Our instructors are professionals and can teach your employees how to drive the forklift, get them certified or recertified to meet OSHA standards and keep everyone at the job site safe. Some of the skills that are taught:
Driving and maneuverability with the forklift
Loading and unloading the type of forklift you use in your business
Daily inspections for safety on the forklift which includes tires, loose bolts, hand brakes, loose welds, and gauges that are not working properly.
Specialty attachments and how to attach and use them
Not only do we teach them how to drive, we also teach the drivers how to do daily inspections to ensure the tires are in good working order, there are not weld breaks, no loose bolts, or gauges that are not working properly and immediately report any problems.
By reporting any problems immediately, the repairs can get done before they lead to more costly repairs being needed and/or a fine from OSHA for safety violations with equipment.
Driving and maneuverability are taught so that safety is always the top concern but how to navigate and reach in narrow aisles.
Once the training is complete and the driver passes they will be certified for forklift driving and usage.
