Description

This is a discussion based refresher training program where we review the key elements of our Rough Terrain Forklift Safety Training course.

 

As laid out in Occupational Health and Safety Act, S 25(2)(A),(D) and (H) Regulation 851 has been amended to include the requirement for training and certification of powered lift truck operators. Employers are now required to ensure that workers have received instruction, training and testing in the operation of powered lift trucks and forklifts. Workers must be familiar with the operating procedures of the truck or forklift that they will be operating and able to demonstrate competency in accordance with the Ministry of Labour, Training & Skills Development’s “Guideline for The Safe Operation and Maintenance of Powered Lift Trucks.” 
This Rough Terrain Forklift Safety Training Refresher is not recommended for new forklift operators or those who have not taken a CSA compliant Rough Terrain Forklift Safety Training course in the past 5 years.

 

This program reviews the following elements:

  • Why is training required?
  • The legal Stuff, who is the MLTSD and about the CSA Standards
  • Causes of Accidents and Looking for hazards in the workplace
  • Pre-Start inspections
  • Stability of a Lift Truck and understanding the loads to be carried.
  • Why Lift Trucks Tip over.
  • Load Handling
  • Important Safety Rules
  • Transporting Lift Trucks
  • Attachments you may use

Practical Evaluations

  • It is essential that the participants are evaluated on the forklift equipment they would be expected to be used in the environment they will be working in.  This is not a driving test where people will pass or fail but more of an evaluation of the operator’s skillset at the time of the evaluation.
  • Some businesses may have different types of forklift equipment and require operator evaluations on each piece of equipment.  As part of our standard forklift safety training, it includes an operator evaluation of one piece of equipment. Additional charges may apply if more than one piece of equipment is evaluated.
  • In the case of participant(s) are attending one of our public training sessions, arrangements will be made that would see the trainer attending your workplace to perform the operator evaluation on a separate date. Again, this is included in the price of the course.
  • If person(s) are attending one of our public training sessions and are not currently employed by a business, we do not have lift trucks on-site to practice on or to conduct an operator evaluation. However, we will provide you with a certificate indicating that if you get a job at a business, that we will send a trainer to that business and conduct an operator evaluation on your skillset and provide your employer with a record of training and documentation supporting the training that you have received. Again, this is no cost to your new employer.
