OSHA Forklift Certification

According to section 1910.178(i)(6) of OSHA’s Powered Industrial Trucks standard, all employees that operate a motorized pallet jack or forklift should be completely educated, certified and tested 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

Finding and training a good team can be a challenge, especially in the material handling industry which has faced a limited number of qualified workers for the last several years. Providing high quality training can significantly impact retention, recruitment and employee satisfaction. Safety on the Move®, Raymond’s industry-leading lift truck operator training program, has assisted many enterprises with their objectives to protect their workers, forklifts, and products since its introduction.

When you coach your equipment operators in the correct way you can expand your efficiency and productivity throughout every workday. Operators that are highly knowledgeable about their equipment generally take more interest in proper maintenance. Disciplined teams also have less frequent accidents, resulting in less damage to your facilities, equipment, product and racks.

Pedestrian Training

In any material handling operation, every worker needs to be completely aware all the time, not just the forklift operators. With that objective, Raymond has developed a forklift pedestrian course that will challenge your entire warehouse team to be hyper-aware and attentive. Raymond's Steps To Safety™: Pedestrian Safety in a Material Handling Environment course helps employers teach pedestrians how to be accountable in active equipment zones and maintain productive and safety conscious environments. In this training, warehouse pedestrians learn environmental awareness, visual signaling, and best practices to prevent safety incidents and injuries.

The Steps To Safety program was developed based on requests for assistance from Raymond customers in addressing their employer-based pedestrian training needs. Steps To Safety encourages the application of the concepts detailed in the program to specific material handling processes and business environments.

The program can be used as an add on to Raymond's forklift operator training course, Safety On The Move or as a separate course. This program can be led by a local Raymond Sales and Service Center representative or by an accredited 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 skilled, efficient lift truck operators.

The simulator positions trainees on a physical Raymond forklift in an extremely life-like virtual warehouse. Through VR technology, operators can get continuous feedback while dealing with lifelike “real world” scenarios.

Forklift Technician Training

In addition to operator and pedestrian trainings, Raymond offers continuing education for your team of forklift technicians. Keep your onsite forklift technicians up to speed on the latest tools, technologies, and repair and maintenance procedures. Customer Technician Courses can be set up at your location, your local Raymond Sales and Service Center or Raymond HQ in Greene, NY.
