Rider-Operated Lift Trucks - Operator Training

Rider-Operated Lift Trucks - Operator Training

Ratings: (0)|Views: 87 |Likes:
Published by Marcus
This version of the Approved Code and guidance is a revision of the 1988 publication and now scopes a wider range of trucks. It reflects the thousands of accidents attributable annually to a lack of 'sufficient and suitable' training and underlines the three main proficiency standards applicable to operators: basic training, specific job training and familiarisation training (the general principles outlined can also be used as a guide when training operators of types not covered explicitly). Accordingly, the document is given in two parts. The first (the Code) advises on the basics and covers issues such as training structure, content, facilities and matters of legislation. The second (the guidance) provides the supplementary advice on training specifics and familiarisation issues. Free guidance provided by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
