Forklift trucks are a huge part of everyday practice for many businesses and organisations within the trade industry. These high-powered trucks have a mast and an elevating load carriage, with fork arms for lifting heavy goods over short distances on-site and around warehouses. Most employers expect their workers in the field to own a forklift licence in order to legally carry out multiple tasks with the use of these trucks.
A forklift licence qualifies you to operate the machinery safely and effectively in the workplace. The course that we offer is undertaken over a period of three days and certifies you to use, maintain and store a forklift. Teaching you to effectively plan your work and conduct routine checks, we’ll also train you how to shift heavy loads, shut down the forklift and safely secure it when it is no longer needed.
Our forklift training comes with an additional high risk work licence, meaning you get two qualifications for the price of one! A HRW licence is required for specific jobs such as scaffolding, dogging and rigging, operating cranes, driving forklift trucks and using hoists, reach stackers and pressure equipment. Assisting you to achieve a number of other certifications, a HRW licence can also open up opportunities to earn a greater salary, due to the high risk nature of the work you are able to carry out.
