Skid Steer Training
A training program can cover any small loader design like skid steer, track drive, articulated steering and axle steer machines. It should also address factors affecting stability, safe and proper operation, pre-shift inspection, site inspection and proper material handling and excavating techniques. Classroom training should be followed by an onsite hands-on evaluation where each operator is coached in good habits and removing risky behaviors.Compact loaders can use multiple attachments, in many different environments including slopes, slippery surfaces, deep mud and unstable ground. Many times this challenging operation is in close proximity to structures and co-workers.Training for risks and hazards, coaching proper techniques and individual evaluation of the operator’s ability to operate in a safe and proper manner can make the difference between an accident and getting employees home to their families.
