Counterbalance Forklift Trucks


This ITSSAR accredited training provides delegates with an understanding of their responsibilities as a forklift truck operator under the Health and Safety at Work Act. Training will ensure that delegates are equipped with the skills to manoeuvre the trucks in a range of environments and maintain stability whilst handling different loads. Delegates will also gain a knowledge of truck maintenance and the process of completing pre and post use checks. Our courses can be tailored to suit you as we have beginner and experienced levels, with refreshers also available.

The BITA groups for these trucks is B1, B2 and B3 Rider. In order to operate a truck with a different BITA code, delegates will need a conversion course.
