Who Should Receive Counterbalance Truck Training in Liverpool?
Several types of individuals could benefit from counterbalance truck training in the Liverpool area. If you’re an employer, you need to invest in training your staff to ensure that they comply with the latest health and safety regulations.
The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) place specific requirements on employers. While it’s true that there’s no such thing as an official counterbalance or forklift licence, as an employer, you must still make sure that all people who use, supervise or manage the use of work equipment have received adequate training, which includes:
- • The correct use of the equipment
- • Any risks from its use
- • The precautions to take
Even if you are self-employed, you need to do the same type of training and achieve the same standard as employers are required to provide to their employees.
Why Put Yourself or Your Employees Through Counterbalance Truck Training?
Counterbalance truck training is necessary to comply with health and safety regulations. But in addition to the laws governing workplaces, it’s also important to note how essential the safe operation of machinery in the workplace is.
Forklift-related incidents account for almost a quarter of all transport-related accidents in the workplace. The injuries stemming from the improper use of counterbalance trucks can be severe and, in some cases, fatal. So, by undergoing counterbalance truck training in Liverpool, you or your employees will not only be meeting your legal obligations, but you’ll also be minimising the risk of accidents in the workplace.
In contrast, if you’re looking for a career change and want to operate a counterbalance truck, you’ll need to show your potential employer that you’re fully certified and qualified to do so. If you don’t have the proper training, you likely won’t even be considered for the job, so undergoing counterbalance truck training is essential if you want to make a career out of operating a forklift or other similar machinery.
