Reach Truck Training Course

Reach trucks are incredibly useful machines designed for tight spaces and narrow aisles. They are stacking trucks(right-angled) and are used widely in warehouses and other facilities for storing or retrieving units in racks. They have a practical design with two outer legs and a set of wheels at the back, aiming to divide the load’s weight.

When used properly, reach trucks can help to reduce costs per pallet (through the reduced aisle widths). However, reach trucks can tip over when they’re not operated properly. Some of the usual reasons for reach trucks tipping over are overloading, off-centre load, moving while the load is elevated, moving at high speed, making improper turns, etc.

However, these minor issues can be avoided with our reach truck training in Birmingham.

Who Should Take the Reach Truck Training Course?

Our reach truck training course is comprehensive and covers all bases. It’s designed for workers and operators that regularly come in contact with reach trucks in their work environments.

The course is meant for beginners as well as those with experience. We also have reach truck refresher courses for those who need to brush up on the basics again.

What Will You Learn from The Reach Truck Training Course?

 By the end of the reach tuck training or refresher course, participants will have a thorough understanding of:

  • Government legislation and regulations related to reach trucks;
  • Responsibilities of employers, managers, and workers (concerning the reach truck);
  • Pre-operation checklist;
  • Thorough inspection and maintenance (including preventive maintenance measures);
  • General information about the lift, its capacity, and load limitations;
  • Battery safety basics;
  • Procedures and techniques for safe operation;
  • Fuel safety;
  • Emergency protocol and controls;
  • Consideration for braking and acceleration at turns;
  • Operating safely in restricted areas;
  • Load weight assessment

These are some areas that the course will explore, but it will also give the participants a hands-on experience. The refresher course is also designed to run through all the essentials of a reach truck.
