Forklift training in London
Before a member of your staff can drive one of your forklift trucks, they need to have completed comprehensive training. Not only will forklift training ensure your employees are complying with Health and Safety regulations, but it will also help them to do their jobs more efficiently.
Forklift truck operators must have been trained to use the specific type of truck they will be driving on-site. They must also hold valid certification, as stated by the Health and Safety at Work act 1974.
We have more than twenty years' experience working with all types of forklift trucks and provide customers with comprehensive driver-training packages. Our course details are outlined below.

Forklift truck driving course information
What will you learn on the training course?
1) Introduction to driving a forklift truck
All of our comprehensive driving courses start off with an informative introduction. We will provide an explanation of the current legislation and operators’ safety code to bring employees up to speed on the relevant theory they must learn.
In order to pass the course, they will also need to complete a theory assessment that will test their knowledge.
2) Daily forklift truck inspection
As well as teaching your employees to drive the forklift trucks safely, we will also equip them with the skills and knowledge to carry out daily inspection procedures.
Having this knowledge is vital, as it will allow them to check their forklifts before operating them to ensure they are safe to use. We will also teach them load-handling theory to ensure they comply with Healthy and Safety regulations.
3) The practical assessment
The final part of the forklift truck driving course will involve a practical assessment.
Like with a driving test, the forklift truck driving test requires candidates to perform a number of manoeuvres in a safe manner. In order to pass the test the candidate must:
These sections will determine whether or not your employees are competent in forklift truck driving. After completing the assessments successfully, we will provide them with the necessary certification to prove that they have gained the required qualifications.
