|II. Speaker’s Notes:
|•A lift truck is an important piece of equipment
that is used to transfer material, products, machinery, etc., through the
facility. When used properly,
forklifts are a great asset; however, when operated incorrectly, they can
cause tremendous damage to the facility and its employees.
|•This class has been designed to help you become
a better forklift operator. If you are
an experienced driver, maybe this class will point out a habit that needs to
be eliminated to become a safer driver. If you are a brand-new operator, this class will show what type of
habits need to be developed to become a safe operator.
|•Remember, participating in this class will not
make you a good forklift driver. It is up to you to become a safe and
responsible forklift operator.
