Course Description

The electric pallet forklift truck is a handy and compact pallet trans-porter which is used all over the UK and beyond. This type of lift truck is normally overlooked when it comes to training in the work place. It does not look dangerous or powerful but in fact it is a major course of accidents. If a motorised type is in operation at your premises then a licence is required by the operator. Most motorised versions have a capability of 1 Tonne and some 2 Tonne to a height of 3 or 4 meters. The style of the Powered pallet truck is important when deciding the required level of training. In principal it is usually a 1 day course however if a candidate has no experience of the powered pallet truck, and because it lifts more than 5 Tonne with its use involving an element of Reach/Counterbalance operation the candidate may need 1 more days training.
