It’s highly recommended that you get forklift training before you attempt to use a forklift truck. Once you have undertaken the training, you will gain a certificate which proves to employers that you are competent to operate a forklift safely.
When loading and unloading goods, you are very likely going to be using a forklift truck. You need to be able to confidently operate it in a safe and responsible manner. Employers have a duty to ensure that they comply with Regulation 9 of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998. This regulation is in force to make sure that employees are given sufficient training on how to operate a forklift in the workplace.
It will come as no surprise, but undergoing forklift training Berkshire-based will place you in a strong employment position. The certificate you receive after completing the training demonstrates to prospective employers that you take the role of operating the equipment seriously and responsibly.
There are three training levels available, but we can offer training courses tailored to your own specific needs.
If you are new to the world of operating a forklift, a Novice training course will cover all the basics, including forklift legislation.
The second level of forklift training is for those who are familiar with operating a forklift and have undertaken the Novice training. This course goes into further detail about the operation of the machinery, and how the various attachments can affect the operational characteristics of the forklift.
As technology changes, so do the way forklift trucks operate. A refresher course is highly recommended every 3 years, as it will keep you up to date on all the latest forklift equipment that you may encounter in the course of your job.
