Straddle Carriers


This course is designed for those who work within a role that involves the moving and handling of containers and ensures that delegates hold the required understanding of significant health and safety legislation. This understanding, along with an in-depth theoretical knowledge, will ensure that delegates carry out safe and efficient operation of straddle carriers. Training will also cover practical elements, providing delegates with a skillset which includes areas such as manoeuvring, inspection checks, and the stacking and de-stacking of containers. This course is accredited by ITSSAR and can be delivered at beginner and experienced levels, with refreshers also available.

The BITA group for these trucks is G1 Rider. In order to operate a truck with a different BITA code, delegates will need a conversion course.
