MARCOM's Motorized Pallet Truck Safety DVD Program discusses the hazards that can be associated with walkies and walkie riders, and explains the procedures and equipment that employees can use to avoid them.
Pallet trucks are more agile and easier to handle than a forklift. And when palletized loads need to be moved around a workplace, "walkies" and "walkie riders" can do a great job. But as with all material handling equipment, pallet trucks can create serious hazards if they're misused, leading to severe injuries and even fatalities.
The DVD program and booklet include:
- walkies and walkie riders
- safe truck operation
- moving a load with a pallet truck
- working on loading docks and inclines and more.
The DVD program in the kit comes with a comprehensive leader's guide, reproducible scheduling & attendance form, employee quiz, training certificate and training log.
