Get The Lead Out is a national woman-owned environmental firm located in Charlotte NC.

We have been retained to provide sampling services at Miracle Mile Shops, a shopping center located at 3663 Las Vegas Blvd, LV, NV 89109.

This would be one full day’s work, waiting at the mall until a 26 foot scissors lift is delivered by United Rental Company, operating the lift
through the mall accompanied by a licensed technician who will take small samples of drywall and paint throughout the mall.

Once the sampling is complete, the lift operator will take the lift to the United pickup point and await United arrival to pick up the lift. We are estimating a full day (7AM to 5 PM).
Rate is $20/hr, you will receive a 1099 with payment.

The date is to be determined but should be within one week.

The operator must be Aerial Lift Certified. To get your certification from the Forklift University online class click here!  Or contact our office at 888-674-8882.

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.

Are your Tugger Drivers Certified?

Tugger TrainingTuggers, burden carriers and carts are regulated under OSHA guidelines for powered industrial trucks. Tugger training and operator certifications are required under these guidelines. Many training companies do not provide training on this equipment and in some cases actually teach electric pallet jack to tugger operators.
This type of switch may not be compliant to your OSHA inspector and your organization may be setting them selves up for heavy fines by providing inadequate or improper training on this equipment.
For those that want to provide quality and accurate training on the lifts and equipment their operators are using, they sho

programs. This training is equipment specific and the materials and videos are designed specifically for tuggers that pull ca

Forklift University has provided tugger training to many companies around the country including, Hyundai and Kia manufacturing plants in Georgia, Hussmann in California and Pets Mart in Arizona.

Tugger Train the Trainer in West Point, Georgia

Tugger Train the TrainerTugger Train the Trainer

Finding Training on Tuggers is difficult, most forklift companies just do general forklift training or modify it to be similar to electric pallet jack training. But Forklift University provides training on Burden Carriers and Tuggers based on the equipment you are operating just as OSHA intended.

Here at our customer in West Point Georgia ( just south of Atlanta) we were able to come in and get their safety coordinator up to speed on the proper Tugger training. We provided all the materials they need to document their training for OSHA and our manuals and tests are tugger specific but they have the option to edit them and put in company specific rules and procedures as well.

They also received safety videos for the Tugger equipment and manufacturer specific materials as a supplement to their Raymond tugger manuals. Forklift University has tugger training available for all types of tuggers including Crown tuggers and  Stihl tuggers.

If your company is working on being OSHA compliant on your Powered Industrial Vehicles (OSHA 1910.178) let us show you how complete a system we have for all your equipment. You can contact us at (888) 674-9992 for more information on our training systems. All of our training is available at your facility so you are always OSHA compliant.

OSHA Visits UP in Phoenix

For those companies that are not OSHA compliant, here is a friendly reminder to get your operators certified and your forklift training documented. Over the last 3 months we have seen a rise in random OSHA inspections in the Phoenix area.

Inspectors are dropping in to businesses and asking for certification documentation. The OSHA guidelines requires that all powered industrial truck operators be trained and authorized to operate the forklifts and other powered trucks at your facility. OSHA guideline 1910.178 requires that forklift operators be certified at your facility.

If you have been visited by OSHA and need to get your forklift drivers certified in Phoenix, please call Forklift U (Forklift University) at 888-674-9992. We have ample trainers to come to your facility and train and certify your forklift drivers. We also have bilingual trainers so if you have Spanish speaking forklift drivers we can also help.

Driving Safety and Efficiency: Part 1

In part one of the two part series of this blog, we cover forklift dangers being inherently dangerous vehicles, as approximately every three days, someone in the U.S. is killed in a forklift related accident.  Even with safety regulations for the workplace, there is reason for companies to seek forklift-free environments. Forklift free requires using alternative solutions to move product from point A to point B without having forklift vehicles for transport.

Such an environment reaps benefits that go beyond safety, especially for manufacturing facilities when incorporating vision guided vehicles (VGVs) into the lean process. In facilities using forklifts in the process of horizontal transport, a vision guided unmanned tugger solution with dollies, trains, or carts can be assimilated into the process to move the right amount of product for Just-In-Time (JIT) delivery.  With the Seegrid tow tractor, the solution is simple, flexible, and affordable, and easily incorporated into a current manufacturing process to help keep inventory levels low and aisles free from excess product, bringing a more profitable business.
