Rough Terrain Forklift Training
Commonly used on construction sites and on logging and forestry projects, Rough terrain or Class VII lift trucks is a popular alternative for a lot of outdoor settings which need a machinery to run on uneven ground. The OSHA or Occupational Safety and Health Administration states that operators must receive lecture or classroom style training as well as supervised driving training. Periodic refresher training programs must be taken by the operators so as to keep them in top form.

Classroom or Lecture Training
The initial step is taking instruction in a lecture or classroom style. Training consists of the necessary information regarding the machine which the driver would be working with. Details like how to refuel the forklift and lifting capacities are discussed. Safety tips are really vital to understand before operation. OSHA does not place a minimum time requirement on classroom training, although, they do state that oral and written exams may be part of the training process.

Supervised Driving
Supervised driving is the next step in the rough terrain forklift training, quite like when drivers learn to drive a passenger automobile. The operator needs to learn how to drive the particular kind of rough terrain forklift that they would operate in the workplace. Furthermore, they must practice operating this forklift in an environment which closely replicates the situations in which they will be driving. Some of the other situations covered in training comprise dealing with pedestrians, nearby structures and vehicle traffic.

The supervisor can certify the driver for that workplace after a supervisor determines whether a driver is capable of safely operating a rough terrain lift truck. The certification for the driver can be kept in their personnel file. If the training is to be taken in a 3rd party training facility, the trainer hands the operator the certification. Because work environments differ, the certifications are not transferable; therefore, drivers must be re-certified again in the new environment. Typically, training passes more quickly after the operator has been certified the first time.

There are some very vital safety concerns connected with operating a lift truck. Operators need to stay alert and able to drive with the utmost attention and care. Practicing good habits can save lives at the end of the day. Also, much less damage to the machine itself, the products or the work environment happens when operators are working at the top of their game.
