What is a Forklift?

A forklift is a small industrial machine. The powered vehicle has long blades (tines) used to lift and carry heavy loads. You most likely have seen forklifts in grocery and home improvement stores. Forklifts can also be found indoors in warehouses and factories. Outdoor forklift uses include construction zones, work sites and a variety of other material handling locations.

In this course you will learn the proper names and locations of all forklift parts, plus understand how they work. Our forklift course includes information on maximum loads and safely maintaining a center of gravity. The most common injuries to forklift operators happen when a forklift tips over. Accidents like these can be avoided with proper safety training.

You will work in-the-seat on a forklift to learn how to control the hydraulic system using levers. To become a skilled operator you will also become familiar with rear-wheel steering for getting in and out of tight spaces.
