Doosan Counterbalance Forklifts

Doosan Counterbalance Forklifts

Counterbalance Forklift Training
Based on Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations, anyone who utilizes a counterbalanced forklift is required to have training. Training for these kinds of industrial machinery includes both hands-on driver training and classroom training. Refresher training is required occasionally in order to keep driver skills up to date. OSHA does not specify a minimum time requirement for either the classroom or hands-on training.

Counterbalanced Forklifts
The counterbalance lift truck can balance its cargo because of a counterbalance built into the truck. Blades could move up and down parallel to the truck's body. The forks do not rotate. Operators who utilize counterbalanced forklifts should receive training on the particular trucks they would be operating and in the same workplace setting.

Classroom Training Courses
In classroom training, the forklift driver will learn about the model he or she will be using. Information consists of specifications such as weight, load and height capacity. The driver would learn the basics of charging or fueling the lift truck, depending on whether it is a gas-powered or battery-powered engine. Safety information regarding the specific lift truck, such as how to safely walk around the forklift, will be covered.

Supervised Driving
Driver training would be supervised to ensure that the operator would know how to properly utilize the counterbalance forklift. This practical training will occur in the same kind of setting wherein the operator would be working. The driver will train with the same kinds of surrounding buildings and other structures on the same kind of terrain, as well as similar vehicular and pedestrian traffic.

Refresher Training
Counterbalance forklift operators are required by OSHA to take a periodic refresher training course. Nonetheless, there are no specifications as to the frequency at which a driver requires this training. However, for regular drivers, refresher training must consist of classroom-style training.
