Safe Materials Handling and Machine Safety by Elizabethtown KCTCS

Pro's

  • This 142 training presentation encompasses a lot more than just the forklift, itself. It also covers OSHA standard requirements that involve areas around forklift operation, as well.
  • Photos, diagrams and other illustrations are used throughout the presentation (i.e. – Slides #54, #60 and #76).
  • There is a 20 question review at the end of the presentation that consists of one word and multiple word answers. These questions come directly from OSHA’s forklift training.
  • Energy subjects (lockout/tagout) are also covered as they pertain to forklift operation and safety.
  • OSHA standard applications are directly pointed out (i.e. Slide #112) and subsequently addressed.

Con's

  • Some of the slides are ‘crowded’ with too much information (i.e. – Slide #61) that would work better if that information was spread over more than one slide.
  • Other material, that doesn’t directly pertain to forklifts (i.e. – Slide #96), is included in this slideshow.

Powered Industrial Trucks Operator Training by OSHA

Pro's

  • This is a “government quality” forklift training presentation from OSHA. That means that the design is straightforward and is expected to contain all the necessary information for OSHA compliance.
  • Excellent, quality photography and detailed illustrations are presented and are professionally selected for their training value.
  • Includes the ‘scope of the standard’ and its history. Of course, since this is an OSHA training tool, it contains the current standard information (Slides #7 and #8).
  • The training section is extensive (Slides #19 - #30) along with information regarding certification (Slide #31).
  • A comprehensive forklift operator training program is carefully detailed.
  • One of the most common forklift powered industrial trucks is shown with all of its parts labeled.
  • The different types (classes) of commonly use powered industrial trucks are described.

Con's

  • Too much information is given on some of the slides (i.e. – Slide #19). The amount of text needs to be spread out over more slides, in order to prevent confusion.
  • The training ends “abruptly” with no summary or questions presented.
  • No questions are posed within the training.

Forklift Operator Training by NIEHS-HMTRI

Pro's

  • This is a National Institute of Environmental Health Services “Hurricane (Katrina) Response Initiative” that is professionally developed and designed by that organization along with HMTRI.
  • This training is originally taken from OSHA’s 1910.178 regulation standard and meets OSHA requirements.
  • The content of this training module is listed at the beginning of training (Slides #11 and #12).
  • The few photos, that are included (i.e. – Slide #28), are of excellent quality.
  • Additional standard information is provided in the instructor notes located on Slides #1 - #3.
  • There are extensive instructions when it comes to lifting and carrying loads (Slide #47 - #51).
  • A final Summary (Slide #61) is given at the end of training.

Con's

  • This NIEHS presentation would benefit from the addition of more real-life photos (Slides #29 - #61 don’t have any).
  • There is little to no opportunity for trainees to interact with this PowerPoint training slideshow through a question & answer section.
  • Not much information regarding vehicle inspection.
  • Too much information (i.e. – Slide #20) can exist on a single slide, instead of being spread out over multiple slides.

Forklift Operator Safety Training by Platteville Public Schools

Pro's

  • This forklift safety training is based on OSHA regulations geared towards forklift accident prevention.
  • A vehicle Inspection Checklist is shown and can be used for discussion.
  • The material is very easy to understand for even those who are, in no way, familiar with the subject matter.
  • There is a Conclusion/Summary placed at the end of this powered industrial truck (forklift) safety training.

Con's

  • The design of this Platteville Public Schools forklift training presentation is very simple and amateurish. It doesn’t look like it was put together by a professional PowerPoint user/organization.
  • The photos and drawings are very few in number and don’t add to the interest level of the training.
  • This training PowerPoint does not begin with a list of training Objectives that would let the viewers preview the training goals that are expected to be achieved.
  • There are no questions asked for the purpose of information retention.
  • The notes, at the bottom of the PowerPoint contain no information that would help the instructor during training.

Lift Truck Operator Training Program by AHBSIF

Pro's

  • Covers safety procedures relatively well, including what to do during a tip-over accident (Slide #52).
  • Forklift operating procedures are also covered well, with ‘traveling’ instructions (Slides #57 - #59).
  • A “Pre-Operational Checklist” is shown, which can be a point of discussion.

Con's

  • This Alabama Homebuilders Self Insurers Fund Forklift Training presentation is designed in a way that some parts are well done (i.e. – Slides #1 - #22) with other parts that looked ‘unfinished’ (i.e. – Slides #23 - #37 and #44 - #53). This can result in a good beginning that eventually slows down and becomes tedious and boring.
  • The middle section doesn’t have photos, colors or imaginative font use. This makes part of the presentation look like a large handout instead of an instructional presentation.
  • No summation is given at the end of the training.
  • Viewer participation isn’t encouraged (with questions, etc.), but rather it’s pretty much just sitting for a lecture.

Forklift Training by USMRA

Pro's

  • The material can be understood by all necessary employees, including beginners.

Con's

  • This United States Mine Rescue Association Forklift Training module looks like it was created by someone who is not overly familiar with PowerPoint.
  • No photos are used anywhere in the presentation and there are only 5 illustrations in the 48-pages of training material. As such, the chances of limited attention, due to boredom, are high.
  • The actual module design (style, colors, fonts, etc.) looks like it was created by someone who wasn’t initially trained in the use of PowerPoint.
  • No OSHA safety regulation references (although safety issues are covered in the training information).
  • No interaction is encouraged as the presentation is too generalized and reads like a lecture.
  • Talks about training subjects that need to be covered, then infers that the material needs to learned elsewhere (i.e. – Slide #15 mentions “Types of Trucks” – but no such information is covered or shown through photos).
