Fork Lift Truck Courses

Why do I need training?

Even the most experienced lift truck operators can find themselves in hazardous and potentially dangerous situations. Serious accidents can and do occur without proper training. The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) require employers to ensure that machinery is operated only by employees who have received appropriate training and assessment in accordance with the Code of Practice as laid down by the Health and Safety Commission. Training is a legal requirement.
