Reach And Straddle Trucks


This course ensures that delegates are competent in the operation of both reach and straddle trucks and that they hold a vast skillset, covering areas from working in small spaces to stacking/de-stacking at a variety of heights. Theoretical aspects are also taught in order to improve delegates’ awareness of relevant Health and Safety legislation and enhance their general understanding for better working practice. Training is accredited by ITSSAR and is available at beginner and experienced levels, with refreshers also available.
