Rough Terrain Forklift Training
Class VII or rough terrain lift trucks are normally utilized in logging and forestry projects and are common on construction sites. They are the popular choice for outdoor settings that rely on a vehicle to run on uneven ground. The OSHA or Occupational Safety and Health Administration states that operators must receive classroom style training or lecture in addition to supervised driving training. Periodic refresher training courses are taken by the operators in order to keep them in top form.

Classroom or Lecture Training
The initial step is taking instruction in a classroom or lecture style. Training includes the necessary information regarding the equipment that the driver would be working with. Specifics like for example lifting capacities and how to refuel the lift truck are talked about. Safety tips are essential to understand before operation. OSHA does not place a minimum time requirement on classroom training, although, they do state that both written and oral exams can be part of the training process.

Supervised Driving
The next step in rough terrain lift truck training involves supervised driving, similar to when someone learns to drive a passenger automobile. The operator should learn how to drive the specific kind of rough terrain forklift that they will drive in the workplace. Additionally, they should practice operating this kind of forklift in an environment which closely replicates the situations wherein they will be driving. Some of the other situations covered in training comprise dealing with pedestrians, structures nearby and vehicle traffic.

After a supervisor determines that a driver is capable of safely operating a rough terrain forklift, the supervisor could certify the driver for that workplace. The operator's certification is kept in the operator's personnel file. If the training is to be taken in a 3rd party training facility, the trainer hands the driver the certification. Since work environments vary, the certifications are not transferable; hence, operators should be re-certified again in the new environment. Usually, training passes faster after the operator has been certified the first time.

The safety issues associated with driving a lift truck are extremely vital. It is essential that drivers stay alert and drive with utmost attention and care. Practicing good habits could save lives at the end of the day. Moreover, much less damage to the work environment, the equipment itself or the merchandise happens when operators are working at the top of their game.
