Finding Forklift Training Resources

At reconditionedforklifts.com, we’re making it our mission to provide free forklift training resources for our visitors. Little by little, we’re building up a series of informative articles. We’ve made a great start with:

• A detailed Forklift Guide that covers all classes and codes of lift trucks.

• Articles about specific types of forklifts, including Narrow Aisle Forklifts, Electric Rider Forklifts, Reach Trucks, Walkie Stackers, and more.

• 3 articles about our used forklifts condition classifications (As-is, Guaranteed Operational, and Toyota Certified Reconditioned Forklifts).

Forklift safety is a major concern and in the coming weeks and months, we’ll be adding a series of forklift safety articles to our growing library of forklift training resources. We’ve already blogged about Determining Your Forklift Carrying Capacity here and have blogged about Forklift Stability on forkliftaccessories.com, but are working on a more extensive forklift stability article now, so be sure to bookmark Forklift Articles and check for updates.

One of the best places to find forklift training resources is on the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) website. In fact, that’s where we find a lot of the information for our forklift safety articles. If there is one drawback to the OSHA Powered Industrial Trucks “eTool”, it’s that there is too much information to get a quick take on a specific issue. We believe our articles will give you the rundown on the most important facts and if you need more information, we’ll provide links to our sources of information (OSHA and others).

If you need OSHA-approved forklift training materials for teaching purposes, forkliftaccessories.com is a great place to look. For example, check out the multi-media Counterbalance Forklift Video Training Kit, which includes 7 modules that bring your forklift operators up to speed on all the most important aspects of counterbalance forklift operation and safety.
