OSHA Forklift Certification

As stated in section 1910.178(i)(6) of OSHA's Powered Industrial Trucks standard, any worker that operates a lift truck or powered pallet truck needs to be fully trained, 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

Procuring and training a good team can be challenging, especially in the material handling industry which has dealt with a shortage of qualified employment candidates workers for many years. Offering top notch training can substantially improve retention, recruitment and workplace satisfaction. Safety on the Move ®, Raymond's renowned forklift operator training program, has assisted many enterprises with their objectives to protect their workers, trucks, and materials since its introduction.

When you coach your equipment operators in the correct manner you can maximize your efficiency and productivity during every shift. Operators that know their equipment thoroughly generally take more interest in proper maintenance. Disciplined lift truck operators also have less frequent accidents, resulting in less damage to your equipment, facilities, racking and product.

Pedestrian Training

In any material handling operation, all employees need to be cautious at all times, not just the forklift operators. To that end, Raymond has painstakingly put together a forklift pedestrian education program 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 program allows organizations to teach all warehouse workers how to be accountable in active equipment zones and create safety conscious and productive environments. In this training, pedestrians learn environmental awareness, visual communication skills, and the best ways to prevent injuries and safety incidents.

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 strategies detailed in the course to specific business environments and material handling processes.

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

Virtual Reality Forklift Simulator

In addition to courses, Raymond has developed a first-of-its-kind Virtual Reality Simulator, featuring state-of-the-art VR technology to help you cultivate more skilled, productive forklift operators.

The VR device positions users on a physical Raymond lift truck in an extremely life-like virtual warehouse. Using VR devices, operators can get continuous feedback while experiencing convincing "real world" challenges.

Forklift Technician Training

Beyond pedestrian and operator trainings, Raymond offers ongoing courses for your in-house mechanical experts. Our trainings will keep your team 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 West Inc location or Raymond's corporate headquarters.
