Industrial Forklift Training – Counterbalance and Reach Truck

Since its inception the lift truck has proven invaluable across industry, however every year thousands of people are injured and many killed by lift trucks. The majority of these accidents are avoidable, some are due to the lack of training of operators and some are due to operator error. Companies operating lift trucks should ensure that they are complying with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and guide – lines laid down in the approved code of practice.

The aim of providing training is to help you understand the safety rules that apply to lift trucks and increase both your proficiency and productivity whilst reducing the risk of accidents. Remember that accidents do not just happen, they are caused. Proper selection of personnel who are to operate lift trucks followed by the correct training (Basic, Job Specific and Familiarisation) prior to work being undertaken is crucial.

It is very important that any commercial training is undertaken by an ACCREDITED organisation/trainer.

HL Training Services are fully accredited by ITSSAR. Due to the vast number of different trucks it is important that the candidate reads and fully understands the manufacturer’s safe working handbook for the truck to be used. Managers and Supervisors of operators should have an appreciation of the safety rules, also the performance and constraints involved in operating lift trucks. There should also be a safe system of work laid down for use of lift trucks if maximum safety and efficiency is to be achieved.

  • HASAWA – Health And Safety At Work Act 1974.
