DVD forklift training links classroom and behind-the-wheel

J. J. Keller’s New Ultimate HPC: Forklifts training program teaches important hazard perception skills, then uses interactive learning to show how they can be applied in everyday workplace settings. It’s ideal for helping to fulfill OSHA’s classroom and practical training requirements of 29 CFR 1910.178 (I). The intense, fast-paced program encourages forklift operators to be diligent at all times. Real-life scenarios help them visualize the challenges they’ll face and demonstrate correct behavior. Unique camera angles show hazardous situations from both operator and bystander perspectives. “Workplace hazards continue to increase, so we updated our popular forklift training to include even more dangers, as well as distractions like cell phones,” observed Suzanne Ihrig, Senior Product Development Specialist at J. J. Keller. “This program uses new techniques that put viewers right in the middle of the action, in realistic everyday scenarios. It allows operators to prepare for potentially dangerous workplace hazard situations in a safe setting.” Suitable for both beginning and experienced operators, the program addresses the most common hazards identified by OSHA, including the stability triangle, pedestrians in the workplace, traveling on ramps, backing, corners and intersections, and more.
