Aye i wonderin, is there any deafies can driving a forklift? I curiously is that forklift like same car? How long will you learn so quickly when you drive a forklift? is it require to read abt safety reason rules before take drive a forklift?
When I worked at armstrong world industries, all summer college workers had to go through forklift training, doesnt matter if you are working on paper machines, cafeteria, yard, packaging. I too had to go through the training each summer. They had both hands on training and video. I told them I cannot hear video and I need script so they had one typed up for my training.
Rule number one - its not a car.
rule number two - you are operating a dangerous machinery.
Not all forklifts are the same. I used the walk behind battery operated models, propane models,electric models and diesel 10 ton models (biiiig forklifts).
Operating a forklift is all about safety and skill. Not on your ability to drive a car. I have personally witnessed a coworker getting his leg clipped from the forks so its not a pretty sight. Again - its about safety and I
know we deaf/hoh CAN do it. I did.
A little tip - I prefer the noisy propane and diesel forklifts as they can hear me coming, the electric ones requires ALOT of watching out for others as its pretty quiet compared to the combustible engines.
