Keller Introduces New Forklift Hazard Perception Training Program

Neenah, WI - J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. has just introduced Forklift Hazard Perception Challenge, a new training program that uses fast-paced, interactive video to capture forklift operators' attention and enlist their active participation in the training.

The program's innovative video format teaches forklift hazard perception through a series of brief, real-life workplace scenarios similar to what forklift operators could face on the job. As workers focus on each scenario, hazards appear, followed by "what-did-you-see/what-would-you-do" challenge questions. Workers are asked to think fast about the scenario presented, relate it to their own work settings and record their answers on the sheets provided.

Common forklift hazards covered in the scenarios include moving forward with too large a load; driving with forks raised; backing up without checking for pedestrians or obstructions; cornering too fast; passing other forklifts; and many more.

The 50-minute video can be broken into separate segments, so training can be presented in a single session or spread out over several.

Along with the video, the program includes a trainer's guide with answers to the scenarios and suggestions for training, 10 employee test sheets, 11 employee skill cards with removable receipts to help document training, and 10 training certificates.

Keller's Forklift Hazard Perception Challenge is available on VHS for only $259. The program is also available on DVD for $329. The DVD version offers additional features, including chapter selection, navigation and random access, and an interactive quiz with video remediation. These programs can be ordered by calling 1-800-327-6868. Callers should reference Action Code 1961 when ordering.
