“Telehandler Safety –The Essential Guide” Video (DVD or USB)
Telehandlers are in general use in the construction industry and are also found in many other industries including agriculture, utilities and waste management. Telehandlers have a wide variety of uses including lifting with forks, crane hooks and jibs; they can handle material with buckets, grabbers and dozers; and more recently they are being used as an access solution with integrated lifting platforms.
“Telehandler Safety – the Essential Guide”, this addresses the essential aspects of working safely with telehandlers. In addition to general safe operating, the programme demonstrates pre-start checks and basic maintenance, safe maneuvering, picking-up, lifting and placing loads. It also provides an overview of the safe operation of quick-hitch attachments.
This programme is aimed at trainers, contractors, owners and operators of telehandlers. Employers, managers, supervisors and others concerned with planning, organising and supervising work using telehandlers will also find this programme useful.
This new programme is delivered on DVD/USB and is provided with a screen menu giving the user access to nine essential but separate sections covering a range of safe working practices to be observed when operating telehandlers. A ‘Play All’ function allows the user to view all sections sequentially with a total duration of approximately 28minutes.
