The Walkie Stacker is an increasingly common piece of equipment. Our Walkie stacker training is an effective way to manage employer obligations.
It is an employer’s responsibility under the Worksafe Act to ensure users are trained in machine safe operation. Additionally, operators are required to have been formally trained in the use of the equipment by a qualified and competent person. Finally, operators have to and maintain that competency.
These machines are used in small warehouses as a primary load shifting machine, as well as in large operations supplementing forklifts. They are particularly useful in tight warehouse or dock areas.
