All trainees are trained and tested to ITSSAR standard and our purpose built training facility exceeds all the practical and theoretical requirements laid down by ITSSAR for forklift training. We have both electric ride on and pedestrian pallet trucks available at our premises for training.
It is a legal requirement to provide users of Pallet trucks with suitable training and instruction in their safe operation. There is a myth that the simple pallet truck does not require operator training and anyone can just go ahead and start using them. Wait until there is an accident, the operator is claiming personal injury, the case goes to court, the first thing the judge will ask is what training has the injured person received to allow them to operate a pallet truck safely.
Generally courses last either 1/2 day - 1 day.
