Whether your training requirements are for novice or experienced operators, all our training meet the standards laid down in the codes and directives issued by the Health & Safety Executive (ACOP L117).
Our instructors promote a friendly and relaxed atmosphere to encourage the best results from your training. Our aim is to ensure you gain the confidence to operate safely within the workplace.
All training is carried out on your site using your equipment so that your operators become familiar with the working areas and loads that they will be using in their actual employment, and can also incorporate specific training that may relate solely to your company and premises. Training is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to fit in with your shift patterns â€“ why pay overtime!
When to train operators
We all know why we need to train operators â€“ the Health and Safety Executive have issued ACOP L117 (Approved Code of Practice for Fork Lift Drivers) which places the responsibility firmly on employers to train all operators to a high standard of operational competency. In addition to safety, benefit from a reduction in damage to trucks, stock and premises!
New drivers must complete basic training and testing before operating any fork lift truck and existing operators need regular training to keep their skills up to date. Part-time workers need the same level of training as full-time workers â€“ operators lose skills if they do not use them regularly.
You should consider a gap of 3 years between training and refresher training, depending on the risk, and some companies provide refresher training more often than this. Even if drivers operate vehicles every day, regular refresher training is recommended to make sure they maintain good driving habits, learn new skills where appropriate, and reassess their operating abilities.
It is also recommended that refresher, conversion or familiarisation training is provided for all operators if you change the vehicles they use, you move sites, you change the way they work, they have an extended absence at work or they become disabled. Remedial training is recommended when an operator has caused an accident or near miss.
