Why is Forklift Training Important for Workplace Safety?

Forklift training gives you the skills you need to begin operating a forklift truck. More importantly than this however, is how it prepares you for the risks that come with forklift operation.

These risks are to both you, and the people in the environment around you, and before training aren’t as obvious as you think.

Forklift training will help you understand where the risks are and give you a sense of awareness that will help you avoid accidents that lead to damage and injury. Both are things that businesses should always be aiming to avoid.

Forklift operation brings together some of the most common factors of workplace injury such as:

  • Operating at height
  • Moving heavy loads
  • Operating machinery around pedestrians

This is why safety is part of every aspect of forklift training.

This is much like when learning to drive a car, you’re introduced to new hazards and a taught how you can behave to minimise the chances of such hazards becoming dangerous events.
