What's in the Training Course?

Our Snowcat Operator safety training course is OSHA compliant, and our online version fulfills OSHA’s classroom training requirement. Each class contains sections on anatomical components, principles of stability, safe operations, common hazards, and more.

This presentation includes intermittent practice quiz questions to prepare for the final written exam included with the course. In addition to the written exam, this course also includes a checklist for employers to use when administering a practical exam as required by OSHA.

Though you will still need to familiarize yourself with all other applicable federal, state, and local standards, this training will encompass OSHA standards for snowcats.

Why Do I Need Safety Training?

In line with regulations, anyone who operates heavy equipment must receive training prior to operating the machine on their own. Requirements for refresher training and other processes are very specific. Most other equipment doesn’t have such specific OSHA training requirements, but it’s wise to follow the same guidelines.

When it comes to refresher health and safety training, the standards in some instances (like forklifts) are very specific: operators must be re-evaluated every three years to see if they are still competent to operate the equipment. Best practices say to apply this same rule to all types of equipment. A so-called “free-pass” cannot be awarded based on experience, age, or time on the job. The extent of the evaluation is to be determined by the employer but should include a written and practical examination that prove continued competency.
