The forklift truck operator course – reach novice

This course includes theory instruction and assessment followed by practical operator training and assessment which will comply with the standard laid down in accordance with the HSE code of practice L117. This course enables the successful trained operator to use any Reach forklift up to a 5000 kg lifting capacity (with authorisation) anywhere in the UK. The Reach forklift is the most common used vehicle in warehousing where maximum manoeuvrability is required. While excellent for use indoors, Reach Trucks are not ideally suited to work outside. Their low under-carriage clearance can cause problems on uneven working surfaces. Contact Power Forklift Training today.
