Rough Terrain Lift Truck Training
Normally used on construction locations and on forestry and logging projects, Class VII or rough terrain lift trucks is a popular alternative for a lot of outdoor settings that require a machine to run on uneven ground. The OSHA or Occupational Safety and Health Administration states that drivers should receive classroom style training or lecture in addition to supervised driving training. Periodic refresher training programs should be taken by the operators so as to keep them in top form.

Classroom or Lecture Training
The first step is taking instruction in a classroom or lecture style. Training consists of the necessary information about the equipment that the operator will be working with. Specifics like lifting capacities and how to refuel the forklift are discussed. Safety tips are really vital to understand before operation. OSHA does not place a minimum time requirement on classroom training, however, they do state that both oral and written exams may be part of the training process.

Supervised Driving
Supervised driving is the next step in the rough terrain lift truck training, quite like when drivers learn to operate a passenger car. The driver is required to learn how to drive the particular type of rough terrain forklift that they will drive in the workplace. As well, they should practice operating this type of lift truck in an environment that closely replicates the conditions in which they would be driving. Several of the other conditions covered in training include dealing with pedestrians, structures nearby and vehicle traffic.

The supervisor could certify the driver for that workplace after a supervisor determines whether an operator is capable of safely driving a rough terrain forklift. The certification for the operator could be kept in their personnel file. If the training is to be taken in a 3rd party training facility, the trainer hands the operator the certification. Because work environments differ, the certifications are not transferable; hence, operators should be re-certified again in the new environment. Typically, training passes more quickly after the driver has been certified the first time.

There are a few extremely essential safety concerns associated with operating a lift truck. Operators need to stay alert and able to drive with the utmost attention and care. Practicing good habits can actually save lives at the end of the day. As well, much less damage to the work environment, the machinery itself or the products occurs when drivers are working at the top of their game.
