As of September 1st 2017, for the first time since 2000, the Basic Operating Skills Test for Counterbalance (often referred to as forklift) and Reach is being updated. At Ribble Valley we want to keep you in the loop to help you prepare properly for the new Accrediting Bodies Association (ABA) test. With that in mind, we’ve put together the key changes you will see in the new forklift test.
The ABA have collaborated with leading training organisations, insurers, unions, lift truck manufacturers and employers to create a modern test that is relevant to today’s working environment. The new test will be used by Ribble Valley throughout the UK.
Below are the key changes from September 1st 2017:
Out of the 22 items to check as part of the pre-use inspection test, 13 must be fully and thoroughly inspected. Any candidate not demonstrating a strong understanding of how to check these 13 items will automatically fail this part of the Basic Operating Skills Test
If a candidate commits any 5-point penalty more than 3 times they will fail the practical skills test
Penalty awards have been increased in many elements of the practical skills test
There are now 5 multiple choice questions that must appear in every counterbalance and reach test associated knowledge (theory) question paper. The candidate must answer these 5 questions correctly. If they do not they will fail this part of the new test.
PRIOR TO ANY TRAINING WE SUGGEST THAT THE STUDENTS LOOK AT THE TRAINING AIDS SECTION, UNDER FORK LIFT TRUCK THERE THEY WILL SEE VIDEOS AND NOTES ABOUT THE FLT TRAINING,AND TEST.
WE UNDER TAKE TRAINING ON ALL TYPES OF FORK LIFT TRUCKS

In what is thought to be the largest ever penalty for a health and safety prosecution brought by a local authority – and the fourth biggest ever safety fine, the super market giant Sainsbury’s was fined a massive £425,000.00. The fine was levied after the food store admitted deliberately disconnecting safety mechanisms which directly resulted in the death of an employee. Winchester Crown Court heard that a worker died when he was crushed by a fork lift truck which had its safety cut off switch deliberately disconnected. Sentencing Sainsbury’s Judge Kay siad “The story is a picture of working proceedures that date back to the dark ages.
Are you and your staff operating industrial machines? Could you be the next to face the courts and jail?
The Health and Saftey (Offences) Act, which increases the penalties for health and saftey crimes, comes into force this month. This act amends section 33 of the Health and Saftey at Work, etc Act 1974, raising the maximum fine that may be imposed by the lower courts from £5000 to £20,000 for most health and saftey offenses. It also makes imprisionment an option for more offenses in both lower and higher courts. By exceeding the £20,000 maximum fine to the lower courts and making imprisionment an option, more cases will be resolved in the lower courts, and justice will be faster, less costly and more efficient.

While modern materials handling equipment is inherently safe and is fully compliant with a raft of legislation covering every operational and structural aspect, it is ultimately the operator who determines how safely and efficiently the equipment is used.

Each of the Ribble valley network of companies now has its own advanced training facilities and employs experienced, professional, instructors, dedicated to raising safety and efficiency standards in the workplace.
A wide range of operator and instructor level courses is available for virtually every type of handling equipment and virtually every application. The courses develop all operator skills levels from novice through to refresher, conversion or instructor standard. Courses can be carried out either at the Ribble valleys centres or on the customer’s site.
