With today's liability issues, it is no longer acceptable just to train heavy equipment operators in the mechanics of operating the machine - i.e. how to manipulate the controls and choose the right digging attachments. Too much is at stake. Operators must also learn applicable safety measures - but not from a co-worker who may already have developed poor safety habits, or from the learn-as-you-go, trial-by-error method of training.
Coaching the Backhoe Operator can help standardize both your experienced and novice operators' understanding of safe operating procedures. The two-hour program-which is designed in a non-lecture, structured discussion format can be easily implemented by your instructor. Coaching Systems Coaching The Backhoe Operator
This comprehensive presentation includes instruction on:
- Equipment inspection
- Safe moving and operating procedures

- Loading procedures
Seven non-narrated slides for group discussion of key instructional points.

The Leader's Guide also includes guidelines for setting up a hands-on training session, a reproducible written test, class registration form, inspection checklist, and a performance evaluation form to assess each operator's skill level.
Each 16-page workbook includes a self-appraisal, video review questions analysis situations, and a course completion certificate.
