Description

Specialised Training Services’ Forklift Truck Training Course is approved by the Road Transport Industry Training Body - RTITB, which is a global organisation dedicated to developing and applying training standards that aims to change the behaviour of companies to improve safety practices in the use of workplace transport.

Poor planning and poorly-trained Forklift Truck Drivers are a major cause of industry-related accidents each year, many of which can result in potentially fatal or serious injury - which can prove costly to your company and is also damaging in reputation!
