Our in-house, HST Ltd pedestrian operated lift truck safety and training course lasts for just one or two days, depending on the experience of your employees and courses numbers. It aims to give the learner all the necessary knowledge to safely operate a pedestrian operated lift truck. During the course, your employees will learn to operate the truck safely and completely in line with the specific manufacturers’ instructions and industry accepted good practice. Working legally is just as important as working safely, and you can rest assured that your employees will have a thorough understanding of their responsibilities under Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, as well as all other current relevant legislation. They will also learn to carry out pre-shift safety inspections, to load and unload static racking and to identify the causes of instability in the truck and loads.
