Last month, three members of staff participated in a Forklift training course carried out by the company A+ Lift Truck Training, who provide ‘on site’ training; as a result, the training was carried out in our workshop using our own equipment, specifically focusing on our counterbalance forklift truck. Steve, our lead technician, Ian, one of our workshop technicians, and Linda, our accounts manager, spent the day learning the key practical skills of operating a forklift truck, understanding the principles governing safe operation and similarly learning about the risks and hazards associated with operation.
In addition, the training also covered essential tasks such as pre-use inspection and basic routine maintenance. After practicing the training under supervision, our staff were then tested through practical assessment and written examination. We are proud to announce that Steve, Ian and Linda all successfully completed and passed their training and are now fully certified counterbalance Forklift operators, congratulations!
