Raymond West offers a comprehensive lineup of forklift corporate education options for your business, including pedestrian, operator and technician trainings. We feature one of the most wide-ranging training programs in Arizona and can provide either onsite or online classes.

OSHA Forklift Certification

Pursuant to section 1910.178(i)(6) of OSHA's Powered Industrial Trucks standard, all employees that operate a lift truck or motorized pallet truck need to be completely trained, certified and tested in order 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

Hiring and training good workers can be a challenge, especially in the material handling industry which has faced a limited number of qualified employment candidates workers for the last several years. Quality training programs can go a long way toward improving retention, recruitment and employee satisfaction. Safety on the Move ®, Raymond's renowned forklift operator training program, has helped many companies to protect their employees, lift trucks, and materials since its introduction.

When you train your lift truck operators in the correct way you can amplify your efficiency and productivity during every shift. Operators that are highly knowledgeable about their equipment tend to take more interest in maintaining it properly. Highly skilled lift truck operators also have fewer safety incidents, resulting in less damage to your equipment, facilities, racking and product.

Pedestrian Training

In any material handling operation, all team members should be cautious at all times, not just the forklift operators. To that end, Raymond has developed a forklift pedestrian training that will ensure your workers are highly conscious of their surroundings. Our Steps To Safety ™: Pedestrian Safety in a Material Handling Environment program allows organizations to teach pedestrians how to take responsibility in active lift truck areas and create productive and safety conscious environments. In this training, warehouse pedestrians learn to be aware of their surroundings, visual signal interpretation, and optimal strategies to prevent safety incidents and bodily harm.

The Steps To Safety program is the result of repeated requests for help from Raymond customers in addressing their employer-based pedestrian training needs. Steps To Safety encourages employees to apply the principles detailed in the program to specific material handling processes and business environments.

The program can be used as a complement to Raymond's lift truck operator training program, Safety On The Move or as an independent training. The coursework may be led by a local Raymond West Inc expert or by a qualified instructor within your company.

Virtual Reality Forklift Simulator

As a complement to its educational content, Raymond has recently released a highly innovative Virtual Reality Simulator, featuring state-of-the-art VR technology to help you cultivate more competent, productive lift truck operators.

The VR device puts users on an actual Raymond forklift in a highly realistic virtual warehouse. Using VR devices, trainees can get instant responses while experiencing convincing "real world" scenarios.

Forklift Technician Training

Apart from operator and pedestrian trainings, we offer training programs for your in-house technicians. Keep your onsite forklift technicians up to speed on the latest technologies, tools, and repair and maintenance procedures. Customer Technician Courses can be arranged at your facility, your local Raymond West Inc facility or Raymond HQ in Greene, NY.
