Hyster Company has launched a Spanish version of its award winning Best-in-Class operator training program. The comprehensive DVD set features Hyster® Class I-V lift truck products and includes all the components necessary to conduct the classroom portion of an OSHA-compliant operator training program.
“Hyster’s tough trucks are designed for the most demanding applications, but we need to ensure that all of our operators are properly trained to operate efficiently and safely,” said Jay Costello, director of training for Hyster. “The Spanish version of the award-winning Hyster Best-in-Class training program contains all the components necessary to conduct the classroom portion of our OSHA-compliant operator training program for operators that use Spanish as their primary language.”
Although developed to meet U.S. OSHA regulations, the DVD content will benefit any operator in any application. Additionally, the Spanish dialect used will be understood by a majority of Spanish speakers, regardless of national origin. The program’s supporting documentation, such as instructor guides, class-specific tests, wallet cards and course completion certificates, is also included in Spanish.
The Spanish-language operator training is offered in two formats—a two-DVD Spanish-only set or a four-DVD English and Spanish combination kit— and is available through an authorized Hyster® lift truck dealer.
