Rough Terrain Class 7 (Telescopic Handler/Vertical Mast)
5 Days (2 days Theory, 3 days Practical)
Rough-terrain /counterbalanced forklifts are versatile tools for a number of Industries and Construction trades. Because they are such a commonly used and accessible piece of equipment, there is also a great potential for misuse and possible incidents by inadequately trained workers who may not recognize potential hazards.
Operated by well-trained workers, the machines provide a safe and efficient method of moving materials and placing them in otherwise difficult-to-access locations.
In our interactive five-day program, participants will learn the essential principles involved in the safe operation of a Rough Terrain Forklift, including Class 4/5 Forklift
- Types of forklifts
- Basic hydraulics and pre-operational checks
- Stability and tipping for counterbalanced forklifts
