Liverpool has a thriving business sector that not only includes offices, universities and colleges but manufacturing outlets, warehouses, construction firms, storage facilities, logistics companies and other industrial sectors.

Many of these use heavy machinery to transport items from one location to another. While having the right forklift vehicles in your business to carry out the day to day work is important, so is having staff on the payroll who know how to operate them and are licenced to do so.

Ensuring that staff are safe to drive and operate vehicles such as forklifts, of course, requires proper training. The industry standard is a RTITB accredited course and providing it for employees who are operating such machinery is a legal requirement for all businesses. It means that workers can not only operate machinery in the appropriate manner but understand the health and safety issues that come with driving and loading a truck of this type.
