Importance of a Forklift truck (FLT) Refresher Course

Once you have qualified as a forklift truck driver it is necessary to ensure good practice by attending refresher courses.   This additional training is intended both for the employer and the employee to ensure safe practice. For the employer this is a way of ensuring that the employee is up to date in relation to current legislation

When undertaking refresher training you will be updated and tested on your knowledge and practice. If you are already a forklift truck driver you will be updated with regards to rules and regulations ensuring health and safety criteria are met. The individual’s needs and that of their employers will be assessed and the training experience designed to meet their requirements. We offer a tailored service that is flexible and delivered by experts.

Training can also be offered to those people who have been out of this industry for some time and who just want to refresh or update their skills widening employability prospects. This is a time to ensure your knowledge of legislation and health and safety is up to scratch which shows an employer your professionalism and ensuring future development. Refresher training gives you time to reflect on the importance of safe working practices for not only the driver but the rest of your colleagues.

Refresher training should be completed every three years normally. There are instances where a company may feel an individual may need re-training for instance if they feel an employee is operating their forklift in an unsafe manner. A further reason could be that the company’s forklifts are being replaced for newer models. Whatever the reason we have the course for you.
