Operators familiar with the mechanics of operating a lift truck are ready for the next step in training with COACHING THE LIFT TRUCK OPERATOR. 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 new 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.

  • PEDESTRIAN VIDEO - A short safety video to be shown to non-operators working around lift trucks
  • OVERHEAD TRANSPARENCIES - Eight transparencies, depicting actual lift truck "accident" situations, generate group discussion of preventability issues.
