Dam Ad 4 where get dam lic hoover"Dam, the staffing agency requires a forklift license"

Wether you are needing your forklift license for Hoover Dam or the local staffing agency, you may be required to already have OSHA forklift certifications before you apply for a forklift job. For those with forklift operations experience you can go online and renew your license in about an hour. 

For those that have never had a dam license, you can take a hands on forklift driver training class at our locations in Las Vegas or Phoenix and get your dam forklift license for the first time. Hands on driver training classes are less than taking a trucker training class and they pay can be as much as $15 to $20 dollars an hour in some areas.

The forklift hands on driver training class is designed for new operators to get entry level experience on how to operate a standard sit down forklift, the most common in industry. The class covers forklift safety and then teaches you the skills needed to safely operate a lift in most warehouse, manufacturing and other basic environments.

By using specialized and standard drills, new drivers can learn each driving skill task and then move to the next building on their previous task. Our facilities in Austin are shared with P&H Material Handling in Round Rock and we have access to all types of lifts. 

Forklift University has been training aerial lift operators for over 12 years across the USA, if you are looking for the best and most OSHA compliant safety training call us toll free at 888-674-9992, or use the contact form on this site.

No harness TX boomlift ft worth

Once again while traveling though Texas I find an aerial lift operator using a boom manlift without a full body harness. this seems to be a common practice around the area and while in some cases full body harnesses are not required on a scissor lift, it is always required on an aerial boom lift.

The scissor lift falls under the scafolding guidelines and the boom lift falls under aerial lifts. This is because the dangers on each lift are different and with a boom lift additional fall prevention is required. 

Scissor lifts have a tip over hazard and in some cases the harness can cause additional dangers in a tip over. But an aerial boom lift has "bounce out" as it's primary danger and the full body harness is required to help prevent these types of accidents. Both types of equipment require operator training and certification and your training should include how to inspect and wear a full body harness properly. full body harness

In this particular case, I not only observed this operator in Fort Worth area without a harness, but he used the middle railings as a step up and was standing on them to gain higher reach. This is a violation with or without a harness but by elevating himself above the top rail he added extra danger with any type of additional safety. 

Proper training could help operators and company owners to understand the dangers in using aerial lifts thereby making sure your company and employees maintain a proper level of safety measure. In addition, OSHA fines for this type of violation begin at about $12,000 per incident and those kind of fines can turn a profitable job into a loosing venture quickly.  You can order an approved harness by clicking the picture or this link

AerialAustinNoharness7It was about 7AM local Austin time and as I woke to get ready for Tugger training, I looked out my hotel window and saw a boom lift basket near the window. Now I travel quite a bit and am used seeing all kinds of things out my hotel windows, but this time it was a training issue staring me right in the face!

In the boom lift basket was an operator, but he had no safety harness and was leaning out of the basket to measure the building overhang.

I immediately went downstairs and outside to offer my full body harness to the operator, and while talking to the "boss" about the safety hazard, he told me that they had a harness in the truck and they just were not using it. To his credit, he went to the truck and got the harness and the worker was safely protected for the rest of his work time. AerialAustinNoHarness1

Aerial lift training prepares workers for safe lift operations, they are not only trained on the equipment they will be using, but they should be instructed on the importance and proper use of fall protection measures designed to keep them safe. If you company or organization is not training, severe penalties from OSHA can be costly. But even more costly would be if the worker had fallen and been hurt or killed. This preventable situation is best handled through safety training and insistence from employers who understand the benefits of aerial lift training.

For aerial operator training on boom lifts, scissor lifts, bucket trucks or any other aerial platform equipment. Forklift University provides operator training and train the trainer classes for those that want to comply with OSHA guidelines and keep their workers safe.
