More Information

Pay Per View BASIC Program includes:

  • 20-Minute Video - Combines engaging video and editing technology with expertise from industry professionals at all levels
    • Introduction
    • Importance of Training
      • Motorized pallet jacks are just as numerous and pose the same kinds of hazards that forklifts do
      • Consequences if they’re misused or not operated properly
      • Operators need to be trained on the specific type of powered industrial truck they operate. If an operator is trained and certified to operate a forklift it doesn’t mean they’re automatically qualified to operate a motorized pallet jack
    • Operations and Controls
      • There are many different models of motorized pallet jacks offered by many different manufacturers
      • Most common models used in workplaces are “walkie” or “walkie-rider” models
      • Lift height and weight capacity vary by manufacturer and model but most can lift a load as high as 6 inches off the ground and can carry as much as 8,000 lbs
      • Steering handle regulates the lift, lower, speed, direction and braking
      • Common differences among manufacturers and models include:
        • Where the controls are located
        • How high the carriage can lift
        • Load capacity
      • It’s important that each operator be properly trained on the specific model they are about to use
    • Accidents
      • Most accidents are the result of an operator not following safe operating procedures or being unfamiliar with the controls of a specific model of pallet jack. Reported accidents include:
        • Pedestrians getting caught between the pallet jack and a fixed object
        • Pedestrians having their feet or toes run over
        • Pedestrians hit by a falling load (due to an unsecured load and/or too fast turn)
        • Operators engaging in horseplay such as riding on a walkie pallet jack
        • Operators are crushed or even killed by a pallet jack that rolls off the edge of a ramp or loading dock
    • Safe Operating Procedures
      • Pre-Use Inspection: The importance of inspecting the pallet jack prior to each use to ensure that any defects are reported and fixed before it is used
      • Getting a Load: Proper techniques on approaching and securing a load
      • Traveling with a Load: The “do’s” and “don’ts” when traveling with a load including safe travel heights, proper sight lines, correct hand positions on the controls, negotiating intersections, safe turning, and more
      • Navigating on ramps and inclines
      • Maneuvering in tight spaces
      • Delivering a Load: Safe operating techniques such as coming to a complete stop before lowering the load and making sure the forks are completely lowered before pulling out
      • Parking: Rules and what steps to follow when parking a pallet jack
      • End of Shift: Proper procedures for shutting down and storing a pallet jack for the next day’s use
    • Conclusion
