OSHA is developing tighter safety regulations that could result in citations on a per-employee basis for failure to meet training requirements. This means that dealers will want to look closer than ever at their training records.

Lumberyards across the country use NLBMDA's award-winning forklift training program to see how they measure up with OSHA's standards. The program can help you guarantee that you meet forklift safety requirements.

This video and DVD, filmed at an independent lumberyard and on-the-job sites, provides operator instruction and demonstrates hazards unique to the building material industry. The kit is a one-stop resource for all of your lift-truck training needs.

The English version of the kit includes: A trainer's guide with a video or DVD Five operator workbooks Five certificates Five operator identification cards A "Safety, Efficiency, and Professionalism" color poster.

The NLBMDA Institute also has created a Spanish version of the Forklift Training kit to supplement the English version of Trainer's Guide. This kit includes:

  • A 60-minute training video
  • Five operator workbooks
  • Five certificates
  • Five identification cards
  • A Spanish operational examination, written test, and answer key.

These two versions of the training program meet OSHA's new requirements for job-specific training in the lumber industry.

Plants can be old or new, transit mix or central mix, large or small. But they all have one thing in common: How well they are managed has a significant effect on their overall efficiency. A simple definition of batch plant efficiency is the ratio of (a) the cost of inputs (employee hours, materials, energy, equipment, etc.) to (b) the revenue generated by sales of concrete. If you divide B by A and the result is less than one, you probably should begin planning your career change.
