The Industrial Telescopic Material Handler (Telehandler) course is designed to equip individuals with the essential skills and knowledge required for the safe and efficient operation of telescopic material handling trucks. This comprehensive training program covers various aspects crucial for effective handling, ensuring that participants are well-prepared to navigate the challenges of the industrial work environment.
One key focus of the course is on safety protocols. Participants learn to operate the telescopic material handler in a manner that minimizes risks and prevents accidents. Through practical demonstrations and theoretical modules, students become adept at identifying and addressing potential hazards associated with the operation of the truck. Emphasis is placed on developing a safety-first mindset, ensuring that operators prioritize their well-being and the safety of those around them.
A significant component of the training involves teaching participants how to conduct thorough pre-use inspections. This includes a detailed examination of the truck’s components and systems to identify any issues that may compromise its performance or safety. By instilling a systematic approach to pre-use inspections, the course ensures that operators are proactive in identifying and rectifying potential problems before they escalate.
Moreover, the course delves into the causes of truck and load instability. Participants gain a comprehensive understanding of the factors that can lead to instability, such as improper loading, uneven terrain, or exceeding the truck’s specified capacity. Armed with this knowledge, operators can make informed decisions to maintain stability during material handling operations, reducing the risk of accidents and damage to goods.
This qualification has been developed for those already working, or preparing to work, in the industry and who will be using a Telehandler as part of their working duties.
