OSHA Forklift Certification

According to section 1910.178(i)(6) of OSHA's Powered Industrial Trucks standard, any worker that operates a forklift or powered pallet truck must be completely 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

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

When you train your forklift operators in the correct way you can maximize your efficiency and productivity during every shift. Operators that are thoroughly acquainted with their equipment tend to take more interest in proper maintenance. Highly trained teams 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 cautious at all times, not just the forklift operators. With that in mind, 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 helps employers teach all warehouse workers how to be accountable in active equipment zones and create productive and safety conscious surroundings. In this coursework, warehouse pedestrians learn environmental awareness, visual signal interpretation, and the best ways to prevent safety incidents and injuries.

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 employees to apply the principles explained 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 program, Safety On The Move or as a standalone training. Classes may be facilitated by a local Raymond West representative or by an accredited instructor within your company.

Virtual Reality Forklift Simulator

As a complement to its educational content, Raymond has developed a technologically advanced Virtual Reality Simulator, featuring industry leading VR technology to help you cultivate more competent, efficient forklift operators.

The VR device puts trainees on a physical Raymond lift truck in a highly realistic virtual warehouse. Through VR technology, trainees can get continuous feedback while experiencing convincing "real world" scenarios.

Forklift Technician Training

Beyond operator and pedestrian trainings, we offer training programs for your in-house mechanical experts. These courses will keep your technical experts current on the latest tools, technologies, and techniques for maintenance and repair. Customer Technician Courses can be set up at your facility, your local Raymond West location in Valencia or Raymond HQ in Greene, NY.
