Forklift Training - The Beginner's Guide

If you’re interested in having a career as a forklift truck operator, then you’ll need to pass a training course. As a legal requirement in the UK, forklift drivers must have at least basic operator qualifications. Without this, you will be unable to find employment within the forklift truck sector.

Getting your forklift serviced might seem like a drag – you'll need to schedule in downtime during which the truck can't be used for work, and you'll need to cover the cost of a technician to carry out the service – but it's an essential part of keeping your forklift in good working order. Regular servicing reduces the risk of your forklift breaking down, and the risk of costly emergency repairs. So what exactly does a forklift service entail? Here's your guide to everything you need to know about servicing.

operating forklift in winter

Operating a forklift truck can be a tricky operation at the best of times, but factor in bad winter weather and the task can become not only difficult but dangerous. The United Kingdom is no stranger to poor weather over the winter months, and as the high winds and rains of autumn turn into freezing temperatures and ice, you need to do everything you can to stay safe whilst operating your forklift.

forklift maintenance

 Looking after your forklift between services should be a number one priority in your machinery management programme. It’s easy to rest on your laurels after services, but machinery maintenance is more than an occasional job. Between checks, carrying out regular monitoring is important to protect your forklifts for long term use.
