Forklift Training

Expert Forklift training in County Durham

Located in County Durham we are a professional training company that provides excellent training courses for all levels of candidates. A key fact we hear all the time from operators is “The forklift that we used at the training centre is nothing like what I use in the workplace”. This is why AR Training only conducts training at your site, by doing so, allows your operators the opportunity to train on the equipment and various types of loads that you expect them to use daily. The experience of doing the training on your site is invaluable to your operators.

Why do training

The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 states “All employers are required to ensure that their employees are trained to operate any machinery that they are required to use”. Therefore surely it makes sense to train your employees on your equipment, in your working environment thereby giving them the vital experience to operate safely and competently.
