So you have forklift trucks and you have employees who have been operating forklift trucks for years.
To you these guys look like they know what they are doing and after all they have experience, surely they don't need training right?
Wrong, Health & Safety guidelines state that "As an employer you are required to provide basic training and testing
for all lift-truck operators you employ (both new and existing). Properly trained operators can
reduce the risk of lift-truck accidents in your workplace."
There are lots of regulations that govern the use of forklift trucks in the workplace and knowing where to look for guidance can be very confusing. Below I have provided a few links that I feel you may find usefull as reference material whilst putting together your company proceedures for safe use of forklift trucks.
