New Arizona Forklift Training Locations

Forklift Training in PhoenixFORKLIFT TRAINING IN PHOENIX

Forklift University has secured our own location in the Phoenix area. After many years of working with the local forklift companies and most recently with Big Lift Material Handling we have decided it is time to have our own space, with air conditioned offices and and inside training area so the hot summer months are bearable while you learn to drive a forklift.

Our forklift training center will be open on Saturdays and by appointment during the week. We will have sit down forklift training and stand up reach equipment for those that want hands on driving of a more advanced truck.

The new location is 950 Birchwood Ave unit 13 , Mesa Az. It should be easy to find, since we are between Alma School and Country Club drives, North of the 60 freeway and only a block north of Broadway. If you are on Broadway and Alma School, come East about 2 streets, you will see the Desert Industries building, turn North there (Westwood) this street will take you right into our driveway. Go to the end of the buildings and we are at the end.

Hope to see you soon in one of our forklift classes.

Steve.

Austin Aerial Lift Safety Issue

aerial lift austin no harnessIt 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. Austin Aerial lift safety

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.

NFL Fly’s High with Aerial Training

The NFL Network had aerial lift operator certification class in preparation for the new season!

Woking around hot lights on the set, under time crunches and around very expensive equipment is part of the job. And for this job, the skill required to operate a scissor lift or boom lift is one of exceptional nature. The other day, I had the opportunity to do aerial lift training for the guys that set the lights at the NFL Network, and it was a great day. We talked about aerial lift safety as well as how the lifts were used on the set. There are many hazards that need to be taken in account of when working around the set.

OSHA Forklift Training at XYZ Global Express in Las Vegas

There are times when basic forklift training and operator evaluations are not enough. While training this week at XYZ Global Express in Las Vegas, we identified several major tip over hazards in their loading and unloading processes, and worked out training and corrections to keep the operators safe!

Because of these hazards our trainers not only did the forklift certification class and operator evaluations, but we took the extra time to do driver training and the operators practiced the safest way to load and unload trucks in their ally.

As you can see from the video, they have a very steep hill in and out of the warehouse so that will be treated like a ramp, and at the bottom there is a drainage ditch leaving very little flat area to maneuver.

So we designed a path and a plan that kept the lift straight up and down when traveling the hill and designated specific areas for the trucks to park so that the operator only has to make a single 90 degree turn to access the back of the truck.

If you company needs quality forklift training from an organization that has the experience and knowledge to identify and provide training solutions for your facility, please call Forklift University at 888-674-9992 or check us out online at www.ForkliftUniversity.com

We have been in business for over 12 years and have locations in Arizona, California, Nevada,  and Texas.
