Simlog Inc., the pioneer and standard in affordable PC-based heavy equipment simulators for operator training in education and industry, is pleased to announce the availability of its Forklift Personal Simulator.
The Forklift Personal Simulator
Developed in collaboration with professionals in the logistics and material handling industries, Simlog’s new Forklift Personal Simulator puts trainees behind the controls of a factory forklift with rear-wheel steering. The training scenarios are typical of factory, warehouse and distribution center environments, featuring a variety of loads and shelving arrangements, along with truck bays. The simulator maximizes operational realism while emphasizing best practices to give instructors a valuable tool for skills assessment, skills development and refresher training.
“The statistics are clear, 90% of all forklifts are expected to be involved in an accident at some time during their useful life, and operator inexperience is a major contributing factor” says Paul Freedman, President and Founder of Simlog. “Our new Forklift Personal Simulator can prepare operators with proper habits before training in the real thing, making them more productive and safe even in the most complex logistics environments.”
