New forklift training centre opens

A new forklift training facility has opened in Immingham by Windsor Materials Handling. The centre is accredited by both the Road Transport Industry Training Board (RTITB) and the Independent Training Standards Scheme and Register (ITSSAR).

“There is a legal imperative here,” said John Smith, the training manager fronting the scheme. “Training is the only way for organisations to demonstrate that they have taken the necessary measures to ensure equipment is operated not only safely but correctly and in accordance with approved operating procedures.

“Businesses that conduct proper forklift safety training not only benefit from improved efficiency, but reduce the risk of injuries to operators and damage to equipment too.”
