Forklift Truck Safety Training Online E-learning Course

Articulated fork lift truck safety is extremely important. Whilst articulated fork lift trucks are extremely useful for lifting and handling materials whilst reducing manual handling they can also pose significant risk to operators, staff, contractors, visitors, materials and buildings.

If you add into this that fork lift trucks are often operated in confined or restricted spaces such as warehouses, then you can see why they often appear in industrial incident statistics.

For the most part, many accidents are caused by inadequate operator training as well as poorly maintained equipment.

This online e-learning articulated forklift truck health and safety training course is designed to give a basic awareness and understanding of forklift truck operations to help prevent accidents.

It is an essential course for any organisation that uses, owns or hires forklift trucks.
