Did you know?

‘There are reputed to be over 8,000 reported accidents involving the use of forklift trucks in the UK each year and some of these result in fatalities. The majority of these accidents are caused by the lack of sufficient training of the operator, operator error, a lack of knowledge about the equipment and the working environment, bad truck maintenance, poor lighting conditions, inadequate gangways and unsuitable premises in which forklift trucks are used. In fact, slightly more pedestrians are injured as the result of a forklift accident than the operators themselves.’

Forklift Training South West

Some of the reasons why we offer Forklift Training South West

  • Improving safety in your workplace
  • Reduces downtime
  • Increases productivity
  • Maintaining standards

All forklift operators should receive driver training. Driving your forklift safely and understanding the basics is essential to reducing the risk of accidents and improve the safety of both drivers and pedestrians.

Forklift driver training can reduce the risk of downtime, racking and product damage.

What should training include?

Operator training should always include three stages:

Basic training: the basic skills and knowledge required to operate a lift truck safely and efficiently.
Specific job training: knowledge and understanding of the operating principles and controls of the lift truck to be used and how it will be used in their workplace.
Familiarisation training: applying what has been learnt, under normal working conditions, on the job.

Basic and specific job training, which can be combined, should take place off the job. Familiarisation training needs to be done on the job, under close supervision.
