It is well documented that lift truck operators who know how to use their equipment make fewer mistakes, leading to greater accuracy and efficiency. Once your Brauer-trained operators complete our training programs, they will be much more inclined to utilize their equipment correctly, and be optimally suited to achieve greater productivity, less equipment damage from misuse and abuse, and less product and rack damage due to improper handling practices.

Safety on the Move®:
The Industry Standard Since 1991.

Used by hundreds of companies and thousands of lift truck operators, the Raymond-certified Safety on the Move operator training program is a comprehensive lift truck safety training program that uses interactive discussions and demonstrations of safety principles, video-based examples and practical hands-on sessions. Trainees are able to both see and experience for themselves the important concepts of lift truck operation that are essential for a safe, efficient warehouse.

Safety on the Move is an innovative combination of classroom and hands-on training, designed to ensure that operators are able to put into practice what they've learned in the classroom. For hands-on training, veteran instructors demonstrate the optimal operating practice for the equipment and assist operators to learn each practice until they have satisfactorily demonstrated competency.

OSHA requires all forklift operators to be properly trained and certified every three years, and Safety on the Move meets that requirement!

There is a Safety on the Move training class for each and every Raymond® model. The forklift course is made up of eight user-friendly, informative and interactive program modules.

Pedestrian Programs

Practical training that improves the total warehouse experience.

At Brauer, education and training do not only encompass the operator of a lift truck, but also the people in the environment around the truck — the pedestrian.

Created by The Raymond Corporation, Steps To Safety™: Pedestrian Safety in a Material Handling Environment, is the only training program that assists an employer in teaching pedestrians how to act responsibly in environments where lift trucks are operated, thereby helping to create a more secure, productive environment. In this program, pedestrians learn concepts and behaviors to prevent injury, and gain environmental awareness and visual communication skills.

The result of cumulative Raymond Sales and Service Center insights on practical experience in the field, along with customers input, Steps To Safety encourages the application of the principles explained in the program to specific business environments and material handling processes.


Steps To Safety program includes:

Steps To Safety can be used independently or as a complement to Raymond's lift truck operator training program, Safety On The Move™, as well as any existing operator training programs.
