The Need For Forklift Training

"Under The Health and Safety at Works Act 1974 and PUWER 1998 Regulations states that Employers have a Responsibility to Train All Their Employee's who use work equipment".

The need for proper Forklift Training cannot be over-emphasised

Forklift Trucks are extremely dangerous if not operated correctly and no-one should be allowed to use one unless properly trained.

Failure to follow this rule inevitably results in misuse of the machine, excessive downtime, serious product damage and unnecessary accidents involving equipment, vehicles and personnel, all of which cost money.

On-Site Forklift operator Training at your business premises requires the following:

  • Forklift Truck for the Training in good condition
  • Room for the Theory (one day only)
  • A supply of stackable loads and empty pallets set aside in a safe training area preferably under cover
  • Attendance of all trainees for the complete course
