Lift truck Truck Training Course
Operators should undergo training on an industrial-powered forklift, or lift truck in order to receive forklift driver certification. The training course should be specific to the forklift attachments and type that you would be utilizing on the job. Training must also reflect the environment wherein you would be working. Forklift safety must be a main concern for both the trainer and the operator trainee.

General Qualifications
Anybody operating a lift truck should undergo both training and certification prior to assuming operator duties. Basic credentials for driving a lift truck include an age of at least eighteen years and the physical ability to safely operate and control the unit.

Pedestrian Safety
The safety of pedestrians must be a main concern of any lift truck driver. Pedestrians near the lift truck are at risk of injury or death from getting hit by the machine or its additions. Pedestrians always have the right of way, and forklift operators should honk their horns when working at intersections or crosswalks or near pedestrians.

Weather Conditions
A lot of mishaps involving forklifts occur at loading docks. These areas become dangerous if rain leaks in through open dock doors making the floor really slippery. Wet floor conditions could lead to a danger and operators should know potential dangers when working in loading dock areas.

Certification
Lift truck certification courses include a combination of classroom instruction and practical training tailored to the particular requirements of the workplace. Training must be undertaken on the forklift type and attachments which would be utilized by the trainee in the workplace.

Accidents
On average, there is around 100 deaths attributed to forklift mishaps, while over 100,000 are injured by lift trucks. Most of these accidents are preventable with attention to safety and correct operator training.
