Driver Training

A combination of moving objects, bulky loads, heavy weights, enclosed environments and high stacking make forklift truck use a potentially hazardous occupation. Training is the recognised way to promote safer use. Knowing how to safely operate a forklift truck is essential for every forklift operator/company.

Training goes far past the fundamentals of basic understanding of how to drive a forklift. It is a legal requirement for every driver to complete a course to be competent in the safe method of driving and to also understand the risks that they or other operators face every day.

Training has several pay-offs - increased efficiency, less damage to stock and equipment, and, more importantly, your employees.

Our range of courses range from comprehensive training for novice operators to refresher courses for certified drivers who need re-certification. Training by a registered instructor can be carried out on-site in the actual work environment with existing equipment or at our premises.

All courses can be adapted to your specific requirements and we ensure each participant receives the appropriate time and attention, according to their needs.

A productive warehouse starts with a safe workplace. Since working with material handling equipment creates a high-risk environment, it’s important to raise awareness among drivers. Knowing how to drive a forklift efficiently and safely already reduces the risk of accidents happening. This not only contributes to your employees’ safety and well-being, but also to reduce damage cost and labour cost.

Create a safety culture

  • Minimise risks
  • Starting with management
  • Direct impact on the bottom line

An effective culture of safety only works if everyone is aware of the risks and cooperates to prevent accidents. Having received correct training is therefore essential, not only for operators, but also for managers and supervisors and other warehouse staff. This way your entire team and organisation can help to improve productivity and reduce damage costs.

Improved driving behaviour will not only reduce the risk of accidents in your warehouse, but also decrease repetitive strain injuries of your employees and lower their stress levels. This will lead to less labour and damage cost in your operation, as well as lower fuel consumption and emissions.
