The first video, “Forklift I: Handling the Vehicle,” covers operating precautions with battery and propane-powered forklifts, tips for turning, dock plates, trailer and rail car loading and unloading, grades, vehicle balance and vehicle safety checks. The second video, “Forklift II: Handling the Load,” shows precautions to take when handling heavy or large loads, carrying, tiering and stacking loads. In addition to the videos, the company offers online computer interactive training.
