Snowplow Defensive Driving (Certificate)

Course Format: On-site
School/Trainer: Ground Force Training
Training Center(s)/Venue(s): Buffalo, United States
  V

Reading the road and driving defensively is difficult enough while driving a car ?let alone while driving a large plow truck with snow, ice and reduced visibility. A defensive driving course can be of tremendous benefit, even to the most experienced operators. Operators will learn to prioritize their work and understand where to look, when. Not only does this training program reduce the likelihood of potential problems, it promotes operator confidence and efficiency.

Sidewalk Plow (Certificate)

Course Format: On-site
School/Trainer: Ground Force Training
Training Center(s)/Venue(s): Buffalo, United States
  V

The Sidewalk Plow is typically seen as one of the easiest plows to operate, and yet it is the one that produces the majority of property damage. In reality, there should be no tolerance for error given the size of the blade and width of the sidewalk or area to be cleared. This is why pre-season training is so valuable. Trained operators are statistically more comfortable with the operating characteristics of the machine, enabling them to be more diligent in their job, thereby reducing damage and increasing performance.

Tractor Loader Backhoe (Certificate)

Course Format: On-site
School/Trainer: Ground Force Training
Training Center(s)/Venue(s): Buffalo, United States
  V

A versatile piece of equipment the Loader Backhoe is equipped with two attachment points that enable it to be converted into a number of different configurations. For example, swap the front bucket out for a set of forks and it is now capable of operating like a rough terrain forklift. Or, add a power jack hammer to the back boom and the operator is set to break up concrete or large rock. The list goes on and on but the common denominator to maximizing the operator’s capabilities is an in-depth training program. Not only will a thorough training course provide the operator with the skills he needs to operate the loader backhoe with its two standard buckets, it will also provide him with a complete understanding of all of the safety and maintenance aspects required to effectively, safely and efficiently operate his machine regardless of its configuration.

Street Sweeper (Certificate)

Course Format: On-site
School/Trainer: Ground Force Training
Training Center(s)/Venue(s): Buffalo, United States
  V

The arrival of the local Street Sweeper is an indication of spring, for many. Clouds of dust and the loud hum of the vacuum component are the tell-tale signs that the machine is nearby. The vehicle’s noise and the dust produced by its operation, coupled with an operator working from the right-hand seat and his/her focus on the curb immediately below presents a dangerous combination. Training has been shown to improve both operator performance and awareness. Operator education highlights the dangers associated with operating a machine of this calibre and trains professionals to pay extra attention to their surroundings when stirring up dust and dirt.

Skid Steer (Certificate)

Course Format: On-site
School/Trainer: Ground Force Training
Training Center(s)/Venue(s): Buffalo, United States
  V

Skid Steers are small loaders frequently seen bouncing around work sites, performing tight turns and delivering loads at high speeds. A large problem exists in that they should not be bouncing along nor should they be operating quickly. A smooth operator is one who can perform his/her work efficiently, but with much more care for the machine and those working nearby. Operator and machine performance go hand-in-hand, the smoother the operator is the more effectively he/she performs and the less stress is placed on the machine. Training helps to identify and correct operator weaknesses, thereby guaranteeing a more skilled worker.

Who Should Attend

Any person responsible for operating a skid steer.

A large, bulky piece of equipment the grader has continued to grow in size since its earliest conception. And as they have grown so too has their capabilities. Today’s machines are equipped to do a myriad of tasks but even the majority of the most experienced of operator’s cannot grasp its full potential without advanced training. Beginning from Day 1, in order to maximize the machines potential you must also maximize the operators training. There is no denying the two go hand-in-hand.

Capable of lifting large quantities of material in one lift these machines make fast work of truck loading, snow removal and work site clean-up and the fact that they are articulated makes it possible for them to operate in tight quarters. But the Front End Loader can do so much more than most people realize. In order to fully maximize this machine’s potential it is vital that its operator undertake a comprehensive training program comprised of both theoretical and practical lessons.

Course Format: On-site
School/Trainer: Ground Force Training
Training Center(s)/Venue(s): Buffalo, United States
  V

Bucket trucks are used primarily by Hydro crews, but are employed for other purposes by such groups as parks and forestry staff. Unfortunately most people who use these pieces of equipment do not realize the potential for tipping when operating on uneven ground or for running into things such as hydro lines or other overhead obstacles. They also forget that Fall Arrest training is mandatory for all operators. Thus it is vital that all staff who have a need to use this type of vehicle receive the proper training on it before climbing aboard. Who Should Attend Anyone who supervises or operates an Aerial Manlift, Scissor or Boom Elevated Work Platform on a construction site or in an industrial establishment. **Note** Participants interested in attending this safety training program are required to show proof of valid Fall Protection Training to complete the practical component of this course.

Articulated Trucks

Course Format: On-site
School/Trainer: Ground Force Training
Training Center(s)/Venue(s): Buffalo, United States
  V

These behemoths are known for their tremendous capability to move large, heavy loads over very rough terrain. They are also known for the dangers associated with their many blind spots and ability to tip arising from their high centre of gravity. The fact that they may be articulated makes them easy to manoeuvre in tight quarters but also adds to the complexity of their operation, particularly when backing up. These big toys were fun to play with as a child in our sand boxes but dangerous to operate in the real world without the proper training.

Who Should Attend

Any person responsible for operating an articulated truck.
