Morgan Training Solutions offers forklift operator training for every type of forklift truck on site at your premises, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week at no extra cost.
Forklift trucks are safely used daily for moving materials and goods throughout industry, from small retail warehouses to huge shipping ports, however forklifts are still responsible for about a quarter of all workplace transport accidents. These accidents can be very expensive with damage to the trucks, the goods they carry, buildings, property and sadly…to personnel. To avoid accidents, your forklift drivers should be professionally trained by qualified instructors. Employers are required to provide basic training and testing for all forklift operators (both new and existing) and properly trained operators will reduce the risk of accidents in your workplace.
ITSSAR Forklift Training
ITSSAR is the body that sets the standards for forklift training instructors in Britain. All Morgan Training Solutions’ instructors are registered with and accredited by ITSSAR. By choosing a qualified instructor you will be assured of good practice and professional instruction, which will provide for a safer working environment and confident and competent operators. You will also be assured that your instructor will be knowledgeable concerning all up to date regulations and laws.
The Law and Forklift Training
The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) place certain requirements on employers. You must make sure that all people who use, supervise or manage the use of work equipment have received adequate training, which includes:
■ The correct use of the equipment ■ Any risks from its use ■ The precautions to take.
If you are self-employed, you need to do the same type of training, and achieve the same standard, as employers are required to provide to their employees.
What should forklift training include?
Operator training should always include three stages:
■ Basic training.■ Specific job training.■ Familiarisation training.
Forklift training on site has the advantage of operators being familiar with the actual equipment and types of loads they will be using in their daily working environment. There is also no wasted travel time or expense for the delegates, or you. The benefits for companies who invest in forklift operator training far outweigh the cost of any training course. Apart from meeting your health & safety obligations, a skilled workforce will result in a more efficient handling operation and less accidental damage.
All forklift truck training courses are offered on a maximum three delegates to one instructor ratio and we cater for all skill levels of operator on all types of trucks such as Counter Balance, Reach Truck, Pallet Truck, Telescopic Handler, Pivot Steer, to name a few. We provide courses for complete novices, semi-experienced operators, refreshers and conversion courses and up to three delegates of similar ability can be trained at the same time. We can also provide bespoke courses to suit your exact site requirements.
