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 so as 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 a number of pay-offs - increased efficiency, less damage to stock and equipment, and, more importantly, your employees.

Lift Truck Sales Ltd provides driver training courses for your staff. These 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 an 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.

Contact our training department to discuss what we can do for you at 021 483 6060 Extension 3.
