Industrial Low Lift Truck Evaluation

All drivers must have successfully completed the safe and efficient operation of a pallet truck in order to proceed to the evaluation. Every driver of a Low Industrial Lift Truck will be tested in how to safely and efficiently use their equipment. Whenever possible, this will be done during production hours. This will allow for an evaluation under the conditions the drivers will be required to operate the machinery in. Upon successful completion of the program, participants will be “Certified” as a Low Industrial Pallet Truck Driver.

Evaluation Process

  • Each driver completes a Pre-shift .
  • Observed picking up a load 
  • Forks at correct height * proper tilt for type of load
  • Smooth stopping * looks before backing up
  • Forks level before entering * stops at all blind corners
  • Load is centered * proceeds with load at safe height
  • Load is stable enough for lifting and transporting * proceeds at safe speed
  • Load all the way to heel of forks * how to deal with obstructed view
  • Observed stacking a load
  • Approach with load down * levels load before putting in place
  • Looks behind before backing out * gently places
  • Raising load * insures all people are at a safe distance
  • Smooth operation * aware of rear end swing
  • Parking * forks flat * tilt forward * parking brake on

Course Duration:

The average time to complete a “driver evaluation” is one-half hour, for experienced drivers. It is suggestion that “new” drivers be instructed for a minimum of four hours prior to being evaluated.
