This safety video program on Motorized Pallet Truck Safety 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.
Areas covered in the safety video program include:
- walkies and walkie riders,
- safe truck operation,
- moving a load with a pallet truck,
- working on loading docks and inclines, and more.
The safety video program comes with a quiz, a scheduling and attendance form, a training certificate, and an employee training log.
