It is a proven fact that the majority of accidents are caused by a lack of operator training. Regular and professional forklift training improves operator safety awareness which in turn minimises the risk of accidents and injury to the operators and their colleagues.
Operating Forklift Trucks with skill and professional training will save the operator time and increase productivity for your company. Being able to handle the Forklift Truck and loads more efficiently will improve productivity and achieve faster turnaround on daily tasks. Investing in training your employees will also increase staff morale and improve staff retention.

Legislation under the Health & Safety at Work Act stipulates that forklift operators must be adequately trained. The Act also stipulates that it is the employer’s responsibility to provide “instruction, training and supervision as is necessary to ensure the health and safety at work of employees”.
