Raymond West features a complete range of forklift corporate education choices for your business, including operator, pedestrian and technician classes. We offer one of the most in-depth educational programs in Long Beach and can deliver both online and onsite options.

OSHA Forklift Certification

According to section 1910.178(i)(6) of OSHA's Powered Industrial Trucks standard, all employees that operate a motorized pallet truck or forklift needs to be completely educated, 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 a good team can be difficult, especially in the material handling industry which has faced a shortage of qualified workers for the last several years. Offering top notch training can substantially improve retention, recruitment and morale. Safety on the Move ®, Raymond's next generation lift truck operator training program, has supported countless organizations in their effort to protect their people, trucks, and products since its introduction.

When you train your forklift operators in the right way you can amplify your efficiency and productivity throughout every shift. Operators that are highly knowledgeable about their equipment are inclined to take more interest in proper maintenance. Disciplined teams also have less frequent safety incidents, resulting in less damage to your equipment, facilities, product and racks.

Pedestrian Training

In any material handling operation, all team members should be cautious all the time, not just the forklift operators. To that end, Raymond has painstakingly put together a lift truck pedestrian education program that will ensure your workers are highly conscious of their surroundings. Raymond's Steps To Safety ™: Pedestrian Safety in a Material Handling Environment course helps employers teach all warehouse workers how to take accountability in active forklift operations to create safety conscious and productive surroundings. In this training, pedestrians learn environmental awareness, visual signal interpretation, and optimal strategies to prevent injuries and accidents.

The Steps To Safety program is the result of repeated requests for help from Raymond customers for a corporate training package that dealt specifically with pedestrians. Steps To Safety encourages the application of the concepts taught in the program to specific material handling processes and business environments.

The program can be used as a supplement to Raymond's lift truck operator training course, Safety On The Move or as a standalone course. Classes can be led by a local Raymond West expert or by a qualified trainer within your company.

Virtual Reality Forklift Simulator

As a complement to its educational content, Raymond has developed a first-of-its-kind Virtual Reality Simulator, featuring state-of-the-art VR technology to help you develop more competent, efficient forklift operators.

The VR device puts users on a physical Raymond lift truck in a highly realistic virtual warehouse. Using VR devices, trainees can get instant responses while experiencing convincing "real world" challenges.

Forklift Technician Training

Beyond operator and pedestrian courses, Raymond offers continuing education for your in-house mechanical experts. Keep your onsite forklift technicians current on the most advanced technologies, tools, and repair and maintenance procedures. Customer Technician Courses can be set up at your location, your local Raymond West location or Raymond's corporate headquarters.
