Telehandler and Forklift

Telescopic material handlers are widely used for moving materials and goods. Without the correct training they can be particularly dangerous in the workplace.

The Health and Safety Commission has published an Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) and guidance called Rider-operated lift trucks: Operator training, that set out the legal minimum standard of basic training which people should receive before they are allowed to operate certain types of lift truck.

The course is for anyone who uses or will be using a telescopic material handler in either the land-based or construction industry.

These Telescopic Loaders, Forklifts and Tractor Driving courses are Integrated Training and Assessment courses (ITA) leading to a Lantra Awards Certificate in Basic Training.

Telescopic materials handlers provide greater ground clearance than a standard lift truck and are used on uneven ground, commonly within the land-based and construction industry, it has a similar appearance and function to a forklift truck, but due to its upwards and forwards reach abilities it is much more versatile. These training courses meet the HSE standards and provide learners with the necessary knowledge and skills to safely operate the machinery.
