Rough Terrain Forklift Training
Class VII or rough terrain forklifts are normally utilized in forestry and logging projects and are common on construction sites. They are the popular option for outdoor settings which depend on a machinery to run on uneven ground. The OSHA or Occupational Safety and Health Administration states that drivers have to receive classroom style training or lecture in addition to supervised driving training. Periodic refresher training courses are taken by the drivers so as to keep them in top form.

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

Supervised Driving
Supervised driving is the next step in the rough terrain lift truck training, quite similar to when drivers learn to drive a passenger automobile. The driver must learn how to drive the particular kind of rough terrain forklift which they will operate in the workplace. Furthermore, they should practice operating this type of lift truck in an environment which closely replicates the conditions wherein they would be driving. Several of the other situations covered in training include dealing with structures nearby, vehicle traffic and pedestrians.

After a supervisor determines that an operator is capable of safely operating a rough terrain lift truck, the supervisor may certify the driver for that workplace. The operator's certification is kept in the personnel file of the operator. 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; hence, operators need to be re-certified again in the new environment. Typically, training passes more quickly after the driver has been certified the first time.

There are some extremely vital safety problems associated with operating a forklift. Operators need to stay alert and able to drive with the utmost care and attention. Practicing good habits can actually save lives at the end of the day. Additionally, much less damage to the goods, the work environment or the machinery itself occurs when operators are working at the top of their game.
