Operating heavy machinery like a skid steer loader can be a challenging task for even the most experienced operator. Not only does it require specialized skills and knowledge, but it also involves potential risks to the operator and other workers. That’s why having proper training is crucial to ensure the safety of everyone involved in the operation.

At Mainland Safety Training Company, we offer skid steer loader training programs that are designed for both new and experienced operators. Our program covers everything from the basics of skid steer loader operation to advanced safety principles and workplace-specific hazards.

Theory Component of the Program

Our skid steer loader training program begins with a theory component that covers the essential topics related to safe operation. This includes performing pre-shift inspections, relevant provincial and federal legislation, pedestrian awareness, stability principles, and operation of equipment. Participants will also learn about the different parts of a skid steer loader, fuel sources, general safety rules and guidelines, and complete a written test at the end.

Practical Component of the Program

After the theory component, participants will receive hands-on training and application of what they have learned. This includes a review of pre-shift inspection, pre-operational inspection, workplace inspection, and safe operating procedures. Our trainers will also cover dealing with company-specific hazards and evaluate each participant on their individual basis as per pre-determined course criteria designed to be equal and measurable.

Location and Certificate

The practical component of our skid steer loader training program is conducted at the client’s location, allowing for customized training to meet the specific needs of their workplace. Upon successful completion of the course, participants will receive their Front End Loader Certificate, which is valid for three years from the issue date.
