Forklift Training Schools London - Forklift Training Schools - For The Safety Of Your Staff
Are you looking for a job as a forklift driver? Our regulatory-compliant mobile equipment operator training offers instruction in kinds of forklifts, pre-shift check, fuel kinds and dealing with fuels, and safe utilization of a lift truck. Hands-on, practical training helps participants in acquiring basic operational skills. Program content covers current regulations governing the use of forklifts. Our proven forklift Schools are meant to offer training on these types of trucks: counterbalanced forklift, powered pallet trucks and narrow isle forklift.
Whilst the lift truck is in use, do not lower or raise the forks. Loads should not extend over the backrest. This is due to the danger of the load sliding back in the direction of the operator. Check for overhead obstacles and make sure there is sufficient clearance prior to lifting a load. Stay away from overhead power lines. When the load is raised straight up, tilt it back slightly.
While the load is lifted the forklift will be less steady. Make sure that no pedestrians cross beneath the elevated fork. The operator should never leave the forklift while the load is lifted.
While handling pallets, forks must be level and high enough to go into the pallet and extend all the way underneath the load. The fork's width should provide equal distribution of weight.
Chock the wheels and set the brakes before loading and unloading the truck. The floors should be strong enough to support the combined weight of the forklift and its load. Fixed jacks can be installed to support a semi-trailer that is not attached to a tractor. The entrance door height must clear the forklift height by at least 5 cm. Mark edges of ramps, docks or rail cars and avoid them.
