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.
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.
- 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.
