Forklift supervisor Training 301


how to train:

OSHA requires training for all powered industrial truck operators every three years. A supervisor's goal is to provide the training needed to highlight hazards specific to the company's workplace and the evaluation necessary to keep all drivers up to code. OSHA requires that only operators who have been trained and evaluated in accordance with 29 CFR 1910.178(l), are allowed to operate forklifts. The forklift supervisor [forklift manager] may also be training forklift operators [team] on how to report pre-shift inspections on equipment, to them.


driver evaluation:

Before operating a forklift, or going through hands-on forklift training, all operators must participate in classroom or online forklift training. Part of the forklift driver evaluation will be the supervisor to watch each driver individually to judge their driving ability and to see how they handle tricky situations. This section also covers discussing common tasks and obstacles.


workplace hazards:

Every workplace is different and each task may require a specific type of forklift. Each workplace will also have hazards unique to it. The supervisor must know and understand both forklift operations and potential hazards that exist in their specific workplace.


accident prevention:

It is well known in the industry that accident prevention is dependant on forklift operator supervision.  Additionally preventing forklift accidents requires a good mindset and attitude which stems from the leadership of supervisors. Of course, thorough hands-on training results in a major reduction of accidents. Proper inspection of the forklift is also important to make sure the machine is working as it should be. Supervisor and forklift manager must also ensure operators know how to handle a load, and how each load they carry affects the forklift’s performance.


report an accident:

At some point, an accident is likely to occur. When it does both forklift supervisors and operators must know and follow the appropriate procedures to report it. Supervisors will survey the area, take pictures if they can, and speak with all employees involved. If need be, they may choose to simulate the accident to get a better understanding of what occurred. As forklift operation supervisors are typically required in shipping docks, warehouses, airports, manufacturing sites, and other related industries, the reporting and procedures can vary.
