Certification Mobile Equipment Operator Training is divided
into three parts, as outlined in OSHA requirements:
- Classroom Training: Is conducted at a site of your choosing and on your equipment. Depending on the number of participants, number of pieces of equipment, and level of experience. We spend 1 to 3 hours discussing the safe operation of equipment. The training is interactive and designed to be conversational allowing operators to list site and equipment specific questions. Topics covered include: preshift inspections personal responsibility, general safety rules and the specifics of load lifting and carrying in typical job situations. All operators have different levels of experience and each person absorbs new information in a different manner and speed. These considerations are taken into account by the instructors. The students will complete a written test at the end of the classroom segment.
Training in All The Types of Mobile Equipment Used On
The Job Site: Operators learn to apply theoretical
principles learned in the classroom to actual job
situations. The training is not generic, but is
specific to equipment used and to daily operational
requirements of the worksite. Pre-operation
Inspection of Equipment, General Safety Rules, and the
Specifics of Load Lifting and Carrying in typical job
situations are covered in detail. Our instructor deals
with each operator "one on one", paying
particular attention to the individual's driving habits,
attention to safety and knowledge of the equipment's
capabilities. All operators have different levels of
experience and each person absorbs new information in a
different manner and speed. These considerations are
taken into account by the instructors.
Evaluation and Certification: Because each operator
will have a different level of operating skill, some
will need little or no further practical training, and
some may require a great deal more. Operational
Evaluation is to determine if additional hands-on
training is needed. To determine exactly what
further practical training is required, the trainer must
accurately evaluate each operator's current skill level.
Operators are only certified once the instructor is
satisfied as to their skill level.
