Articulated Truck Training Reduces Accidents

Articulated Trucks are large machines that contain a special oscillating hitch that allows the truck to turn in tight spots. They are found on construction, mining, and quarry operations around the world. When fully loaded the vehicle weighs 163,087 pounds! That kind of weight and size means it is imperative that the driver knows how to safely operate the truck. Many accidents, especially truck overturns, occur each year because untrained or undertrained operators are driving trucks before they are fully ready. The key to fewer accidents is training for safe operation.

Simulation training can help reduce accidents and increase worksite production. The Cat Simulators Articulated Truck System can train operators to properly drive and haul loads, and use the service and compression brake., Other applications include getting loaded through the gate or over the rail, properly unloading the vehicle and gaining skills practicing a full production cycle. Plus, learn controls familiarization and how to conduct a machine parts inspection. Discover the key to increased production and decreased safety issues with Cat Simulators training.
