This report evaluates available training materials for employees operating equipment identified in the Forest Service Health and Safety Code as "specialized equipment:" 15-passenger vans, four-wheel-drive vehicles, all-terrain vehicles, off-road motorcycles, snowmobiles, and trailers. Standard Forest Service training programs have not yet been developed for specialized equipment. Videos, DVDs, PowerPoint presentations, Adobe Acrobat files, Web sites, and streaming video were reviewed. The concluding comments discuss the types of training resources that the Forest Service might wish to develop to ensure the safety of the agency's field employees.

Keywords: all-terrain vehicles, DVDs, four-wheel-drive vehicles, motorcycles, safety at work, snowmobiles, trailers, training videos, vans
