West Midlands, UK – March 17th, 2022: There’s a lot involved when it comes to teaching workers how to be excellent forklift operators. Companies actively seek out employees who will perform their jobs with rigorous precision – carrying out daily forklift safety inspections, checking to see if the equipment needs any repairs, and always following standard safety protocol while lifting, loading, and transporting materials on forklifts. RS Forklift Training is one of the UK’s best-known forklift training institutes that has been offering customized forklift training courses to British workers for over twenty years.
The company offers in-house forklift training for companies who wish to use their own forklift equipment on their own company premises in forklift training sessions. Many businesses demand In-house forklift training because it allows their employees to actually train on the very vehicles they will be using at work, in an environment that they will be intimately familiar with.
A representative from RS Forklift Training told us why so many employers demand on-site forklift training for their workers. “When it comes to driving a forklift, the number one skill all workers need to have is to know how to navigate the vehicle in the place where they work, whether it’s a factory, warehouse, or a dock. They need to lift loads from various heights and maneuver the forklift into narrow aisles, so it makes sense why many companies prefer that their workers receive in-house forklift training. Their training will take place in the location where they’ll actually be working as forklift operators.”
RS Forklift Training offers a range of forklift training courses with their RTITB proficient forklift instructors. There are 1-day refresher or re-certification courses for workers who wish to renew their existing forklift certification. There are 2-day and 3-day courses for experienced forklift operators who require advanced training. Finally, there are 4-day and 5-day courses for novices who have little to no experience operating forklifts in the workplace and need to obtain proper forklift certification.
The forklift training programs offered by the company cover all aspects of forklift training, including the proper way to stack, lift and transport heavy loads, how to troubleshoot for forklift hardware problems, and carry out thorough safety inspections. To make their forklift training courses accessible to British workers throughout the country, RS Forklift Training offers their training programs in many cities across the UK, including Birmingham, Coventry, Dudley, Warwickshire, Staffordshire, and Leeds. Their courses are also affordable so that companies and workers will be encouraged to sign up for forklift training.
Continuing with his earlier comments, the company representative talked to us further about why forklift training is essential in order for businesses to maintain safety standards at their workplace. “Every year, hundreds of workers end up in the hospital with bad injuries that result from common forklift mistakes, like improper load handling or non-compliance with forklift safety guidelines. Companies should view professional forklift training from an RTITB accredited institute as a small investment that will have a huge pay-off for years to come. Our forklift training courses make all trainees go through rigorous and elemental training, which includes physical demonstrations as well as written examinations so that they emerge as certified forklift operators who will conduct themselves professionally when they actually have to work with forklifts at work.”
The company’s commitment to upholding its standards in terms of the quality of the courses it offers is also why every client they work with gives them rave reviews. In all the twenty years that they have been offering professional forklift training to workers in Britain, they have built a reputation as the United Kingdom’s foremost forklift training institute.
In order to ensure that every trainee receives proper attention and mentorship, RS Forklift Training holds their forklift training sessions in batches of 3 or 4 individuals. The instructors train workers to use different forklifts, including electric forklifts, internal combustion forklifts, counterbalance forklifts (which are used to load and unload vehicles and transport loads in yards, factories, and warehouses), and reach forklifts (which are commonly used in confined areas and narrow aisles in warehouses).
At the end of the training, all forklift operators are required to complete practical checks and take a simply written assessment to prove that they are qualified to operate forklifts.
All trainees who successfully complete the course and receive forklift certification will be registered on the NORS database and receive a special registration number. This number can be used by both current and future employers to check the NORS database to confirm if their employee has completed their forklift training.
