The advances made in new simulation technology in recent years have meant that these cutting-edge techniques can nowadays be applied effectively within the fields of training and health and safety.
Just as it would be unthinkable for an airline pilot to be trained without using a simulator, the progress of simulation over the years has enabled this technology to reach civil organisations, which also need to train professional drivers in other sectors, such as construction, logistics or public transport on the ground.
In the quest for assuring maximum safety, the simulators not only serve to reduce the high costs or restrictions, which are often associated with experiential training in a real vehicle but, more importantly, they develop, reinforce and consolidate driving habits that increase the safety of employees.
In the EU alone, there are more than 50 accidents involving forklifts every year. The forklift remains the most dangerous vehicle in the workplace and the causes of these accidents are largely related to unsafe driving practices.
With this in mind, Lander Simulation & Training Solutions, a leading specialist in the development, manufacture and distribution of professional driving simulators for ground transport, has just launched its forklift simulator onto the market.
Aware of the growing importance that society places on comprehensive and advanced training, the company has created this simulator to reflect all the know-how gathered over years spent working on simulation for civil transport.
The Lander forklift simulator has a trainee station, which is completely real, with controls that the operator would use in reality. The layout of the screens also enables the student to have the widest field of vision. The scenery has been designed to be able to generate more interesting and realistic situations, ensuring that skills are effectively transferred to real life. Additionally, there is a station for the instructor that allows them to create exercises simply and intuitively, control various training stations and monitor the performance of trainees.
Ultimately, Lander wants to go the extra mile in forklift training and accident prevention by offering companies a product that is designed to be 100% adaptable to their training needs.
