Skid Steer Loader

While a skid steer may look like a forklift, it is different in many ways and requires additional training to operate.  Without the training, an operator will be putting themselves and co-workers in a very unsafe situation.

Occupational Health & Safety regulations (section 154) state that only competent operators, as in those who have the proper training, can operate one.

Course Description:

This course is designed to introduce new operators to the theory behind safe operation of a skid steer and to apply these theories in practice in a controlled environment.  The course also serves as an excellent review for experienced operators.

Topics Covered:

  • Legislation and regulations
  • Principles of a skid steer loader
  • Movement and understanding the pivot point
  • Mounting and dismounting the machine
  • Control types (specific to your skid steer)
  • Pre-shift inspection
  • Work site inspection
  • How to work with a bucket, fork, and other attachments (if applicable)
  • Transporting a skid steer

When booking the course, we will need to know the specific control types and types of attachments you require for training.

Legislation requires that students receive a minimum 16 hours of training and we will work with you to meet that requirement in either a 1 or 2 day course.

Class size varies based on the type of machine being trained.
