A comprehensive forklift driver training program designed for the specialized needs of containerized shipping operations has been established by Sea-Land Service. The program is intended to acquaint drivers with equipment design and techniques for safe operation. The most important part of the basic two-hour session concerns "protecting others and yourself". A one-hour classroom unit consists of a slide presentation and discussion among drivers. The meeting leader invites comment about personal experiences to reinforce the information featured in the slides. A driving test completes the basic program. It requires drivers to negotiate a course set up in advance that involves careful maneuvering in tight places with a load in the forks. Because the forklift is used throughout the industry, Sea-Land is making the training program available to other companies on request. Further information is available from Frank Casey, Sea-Land Service, P.O. Box 1050, Elizabeth, NJ 07207, phone 201-289-6000.
