The forklift is one of the more valuable competencies to possess. This competency covers forklifts from basic right up to container forks.
Due to the multitude of forklifts in industry they are often disregarded and viewed as a machine that can be operated by a novice with no or limited experience. When moving on to various other equipment recognised prior learning can aid in shortening the theory component of subsequent courses.
Nothing could be further from the truth with forklifts accounting for a vast majority of injuries and fatalities in the work place. On investigation a lot of these incidents could have been avoided by operators with more knowledge of the technical expertise required. These may include the balance triangle and safe working loads of forklifts and their attachments.
