From the classroom to hands-on field training, East Harding superintendents learned and refreshed their knowledge base in Rough Terrain Forklift operation. Gary Barth, Regional Safety Trainer for United Rentals was onsite to provide a training session and opportunity for everyone in attendance to update or get their certification.
Rough terrain forklifts typically can lift weight capacities from 15 feet to 56 feet in the air. Their rated load capacities typically range from 5,500 pounds up to 12,000 pounds. Pat Booth, Sr. Site Superintendent and Tom Wolfe, Site Superintendent, were among the many to operate the JCB 506-36 Rough Terrain Forklift.
A special thanks to United Rentals for providing an excellent session and hands-on experience.
