Rough Terrain Lift Truck Training
Class VII or rough terrain forklifts are normally utilized in logging and forestry projects and are common on construction sites. They are the popular choice for outdoor settings which rely on a vehicle to run on uneven ground. The OSHA or Occupational Safety and Health Administration states that drivers have to receive classroom style training or lecture together with supervised driving training. Regular refresher training programs must be taken by the operators so as to keep them in top form.

Lecture or Classroom Training
The first step is taking instruction in a lecture or classroom style. Training includes the essential information about the machinery which the operator will be working with. Specifics like lifting capacities and how to refuel the lift truck are discussed. Safety tips are really essential to understand prior to operation. OSHA does not place a minimum time requirement on classroom training, although, they do state that both oral and written exams could be part of the training process.

Supervised Driving
Supervised driving is the next step in the rough terrain lift truck training, quite like when drivers learn to drive a passenger car. The operator has to learn how to operate the particular kind of rough terrain lift truck which they would drive in the workplace. As well, they have to practice operating this lift truck in an environment that closely replicates the conditions wherein they will be driving. Some of the other conditions covered in training comprise handling pedestrians, nearby structures and vehicle traffic.

The supervisor can certify the driver for that workplace after a supervisor determines whether an operator is capable of safely operating a rough terrain forklift. The certification for the driver can be kept in their personnel file. If the training is to be taken in a 3rd party training facility, the trainer hands the driver the certification. Because work environments vary, the certifications are not transferable; thus, drivers must be re-certified again in the new environment. Typically, training passes more quickly after the driver has been certified the first time.

The safety problems associated with driving a forklift are very vital. It is important that drivers stay alert and drive with utmost care and attention. Practicing good habits can actually save lives at the end of the day. In addition, much less damage to the goods, the work environment or the machine itself occurs when operators are working at the top of their game.
