||Occupational safety and health professionals asked the IRSST to help them explain the fork lift truck stability concepts that they teach to operators. These concepts are complex, abstract and not easy to learn. A participatory approach guided by a professional instruction specialist and involving 13 experienced instructors from various organizations was adopted, the process being also accompanied by ergonomists and by a specialist in vehicle dynamics. Meetings and work sessions allowed the stability concepts to be addressed, as well as a new instructional environment to be developed. The apprentice fork lift truck operator thus becomes the centre of the pedagogical process, with the instructor being the person promoting his link to the learning objective via various operator activities. As a result of this study, four main activities have been defined and various tools available to instructors are hosted on a website.
