OSHA Forklift Certification

Pursuant to section 1910.178(i)(6) of OSHA's Powered Industrial Trucks standard, all employees that operate a motorized pallet jack or forklift must be completely trained, tested and certified as a requirement to operate that specific equipment. Moreover, those workers must be recertified every 3 years, or in the event of an accident, job deficiency or equipment change.

Forklift Operator Training

Procuring and training good workers can be difficult, especially in the material handling industry which has been dealing with a shortage of qualified employment candidates workers for many years. Offering top notch training can significantly impact retention, recruitment and morale. Safety on the Move ®, Raymond's next generation lift truck operator training program, has helped many companies to protect their people, forklifts, and materials since its introduction.

When you coach your forklift operators in the right way you can amplify your productivity and efficiency throughout every shift. Operators that are highly knowledgeable about their equipment tend to take more interest in maintaining it properly. Highly competent equipment operators also have fewer safety incidents, resulting in less damage to your facilities, equipment, product and racks.

Pedestrian Training

In any warehouse environment, every worker needs to be vigilant all the time, not just the forklift operators. With that in mind, Raymond has developed a lift truck pedestrian education program that will challenge your entire warehouse team to be hyper-aware and attentive. Our Steps To Safety ™: Pedestrian Safety in a Material Handling Environment course helps employers teach all warehouse workers how to be accountable in active equipment zones and maintain productive and safety conscious surroundings. In this coursework, warehouse pedestrians learn environmental awareness, visual signaling, and optimal strategies to prevent injuries and accidents.

The Steps To Safety program was developed based on requests for assistance from Raymond customers for a corporate training package that dealt specifically with pedestrians. Steps To Safety encourages the application of the principles explained in the course to specific business environments and material handling processes.

The program can be used as an add on to Raymond's forklift operator training program, Safety On The Move or as a separate training. This program can be led by a local Raymond West Inc representative or by an accredited instructor within your company.

Virtual Reality Forklift Simulator

In addition to courses, Raymond has recently released a technologically advanced Virtual Reality Simulator, featuring industry leading VR technology to help you cultivate more skilled, efficient lift truck operators.

The VR device puts trainees on an actual Raymond forklift in a very convincing virtual warehouse. Through VR technology, operators can get continuous feedback while experiencing convincing "real world" challenges.

Forklift Technician Training

Apart from operator and pedestrian courses, we offer ongoing courses for your in-house technicians. These courses will keep your technical experts up to speed on the latest tools, technologies, and repair and maintenance procedures. Customer Technician Courses can be arranged at your location, your local Raymond West Inc branch or Raymond's corporate headquarters.
