Forklift Training Courses
Forklift Training for all Situations
In an ideal world most forklift training providers would like to run a forklift training course situation where we have plenty of room to manoeuvre, on a laser levelled smooth floor surface, were there is conveniently situated racking systems for our forklift training course operators to practise on, lots of things to stack and de-stack such as pallets, stillage’s IBC’s etc.
An ideal forklift training course situation would be the absence of other forklift trucks and pedestrian movement whilst the forklift training course is being conducted. Just to put the icing on the cake a forklift trucks availability for the full duration of the forklift training course that shines and gleams like the day it left the manufactures factory.
But it is not an ideal world is it? Most forklift truck training courses have to be undertaken at clients’ premises within their own working environment, this could be dirty, noisy, cold, damp, poorly lit and busy with both pedestrian and other forklift truck activity. More than likely it will have far from ideal floor and ground situations with pot holes, uneven and slippery surfaces with cramped space to manoeuvre. The forklifts though fully serviceable can be dirty and old and uncomfortable a world far from ideal with only a bulk bag to move, nothing to stack at any height other than to load or unload a lorry. This is the real world. This is the workplace. This is why forklift truck operator training courses should and needs to be geared towards being able to work safely and efficiently in all situations, at all times.
