Basic Operational Techniques – Module ID 22104

$20.00

Learning to operate a piece of heavy equipment is something like learning to drive and take care of a car. One of the first things an operator must learn is how to check the vehicle before starting it. Visual inspections of the vehicle are critical. The tires should appear to be inflated and undamaged. The lights and horn should be functional. All vehicle body parts need to be in place and usable. After the vehicle has been checked out, the operator should get into the operator’s seat, fasten the seat belt, and become familiar with all the instruments and controls. After verifying that the vehicle is safe to use, and after becoming familiar with the controls, the operator can start the vehicle, move it forward, change its direction, stop it, and move it backwards before parking it. Heavy equipment operators must learn to do such basic actions before they can move on to operating any attachments installed on the heavy equipment.
