Coaching the Lift Truck Operator, Train-the-Trainer, New Berlin

October 11, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm

Course Overview

A one-day seminar that prepares you or your designated trainer to teach the National Safety Council’s comprehensive training program, Coaching the Lift Truck Operator.

Operators familiar with the mechanics of operating a lift truck are ready for the next step in training with COACHING THE LIFT TRUCK OPERATOR II . Utilizing the highly acclaimed “Coaching” method of non-lecture teaching, this information-packed classroom course encourages participants to observe, analyze and discuss recommended safety practices. Based on requests from safety directors, the course also includes a video presentation for in-plant personnel who do not drive lift trucks, but do work in areas where lift trucks are operated.

The program offers instructors the tools necessary to meet OSHA’s requirements for formal instruction, practical training and evaluation. Each component of the course relates directly to the others, forming a comprehensive, integrated system of training. The program’s format allows for flexibility in presentation and local job site customization to cover specific company policies.

The standards require a training program based on the trainee’s prior knowledge and skill, types of powered industrial trucks used in the workplace, hazards in the workplace and the operator’s demonstrated ability to handle a powered industrial truck safely. Evaluation of each operator’s performance is required as part of the initial and refresher training, and at least once every three years.

Fact: It is an OSHA requirement to train anyone who operates a powered industrial truck, including lift trucks, whether they operate the truck daily or once a year. Coaching the Lift Truck Operator II is a training program that covers all aspects of the new standard on operator training. By the end of the seminar, participants will have the tools to develop and implement a successful in-house training program that complies with OSHA’s training requirements.

By attending this one-day course, you can become familiar with the National Safety Council’s lift truck training program, leave with the complete training package, and begin training your operators!

Additional Program Information

This non-lecture, participatory approach to training addresses the critical issues of lift truck operations. It goes beyond teaching operators about the mechanics and engineering of the truck and how to drive it. It teaches safety awareness for the total work site situation … including pedestrians. And, it uses a dynamic interactive teaching approach —the way adults learn best.
