Forklift Driver Training

Did you know on average there are 8,000 reported accidents involving the use of forklift trucks in the UK each year, some of which result in fatalities? The majority of the accidents are avoidable and it is safe to say they are predominantly due to lack of training of the operator.

Doing the safe thing costs money. However, any spending on safety is money well spent, which is why our forklift training courses are designed to keep you and your forklift operators safe.

Our Forklift Driver Training instructors have ITSSAR (Independent Training Standards Scheme and Register) accreditation and carry out thorough training to the highest standards.
