Doosan Counterbalance Forklifts

Doosan Counterbalance Forklifts

Counterbalance Forklift Training
Anyone who operates a counterbalanced lift truck is required to receive training, according to Occupational Safety and Health Administration policies. Training consists of a combination of classroom training and hands-on driver training. Refresher training is required periodically to keep operator skills up to date. OSHA does not indicate a required minimum time for either the hands-on or classroom training.

Counterbalanced Forklifts
A counterbalanced forklift balances its cargo utilizing a counterbalance built into the truck. The blades move up and down parallel to the truck's body. The blades do not pivot. Drivers who use counterbalanced lift trucks should receive training about the particular forklifts they will be operating and in the same workplace environment.

Classroom Training Programs
In classroom training, the lift truck operator would be taught about the model she or he will be operating. Information comprises specifications like height, weight and load capacity. The driver would be taught the basics of charging or fueling the forklift, depending on whether it is a battery-powered or gas-powered engine. Safety measures pertaining to the specific truck, such as how to walk safely around the lift truck, will be included.

Supervised Driving
Supervised driver training would make sure that the forklift driver knows how to operate the counterbalanced forklift. This practical training course will occur in the same type of setting wherein the operator would be working. The driver will train with the same types of surrounding buildings and other structures on the same type of terrain, as well as similar pedestrian and vehicular traffic.

Refresher Training Courses
Though OSHA requires periodic refresher training for counterbalanced lift truck operators, there are no specifications which determine the frequency of refresher training or its contents. However, for regular operators, refresher training programs needs to include classroom-style training.
