Driver training:
Improved productivity and safety

A vital part of your operation

A forklift which is operated by someone who has had little experience or guidance can pose a significant risk to health and safety not only to themselves but to people working around them.

An operator who has not been trained also poses a higher risk of causing damage. The damage could be to the machine they are using, the goods they are handling, other machines and equipment in the area of work or the infrastructure.

Quite simply a machine which is used by a trained operative is much safer and much more cost effective.
