Why is Forklift Operator Training Important?

Companies rely on forklifts to move large, heavy objects around storage facilities and construction sites. Due to the weight and size of the objects they carry, the proper training is essential in maintaining the safety of the drivers and employees, as it can help prevent potentially dangerous accidents and workplace injuries. 

Ensuring forklift drivers are adequately trained and certified also allows employers to benefit from:

  • Safer workplaces. 
  • Decreased likelihood of equipment and property damage. 
  • Increased productivity. 
  • Less time and money wasted on mistakes and accidents.
  • Improved employee morale. 
  • Lower insurance rates. 


There are three levels of forklift training, namely basic forklift training, job-specific forklift training, and familiarisation forklift training, and it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure their drivers receive the proper training to fulfil their duties as safely as possible. Additionally, continual observations should also be carried out to identify if any re-training is necessary. 

With the forklift truck training courses we offer at A1 Forklift Truck Training, we can help you meet all the necessary guidelines and requirements, and ensure that your drivers are working according to the strictest standards of health and safety. 


Our Forklift Training Course

Our Experienced Forklift Operator Training Course is aimed at people who have some level of previous operating experience, but who either do not have a basic training certificate or are unable to provide proof that they have previously held one. 

The course is delivered using a combination of theory and practical sessions, ensuring your operators have a complete understanding of lift trucks, as well as the best practice while operating them. 

This forklift instructor training course is offered over three days, but this can be reduced if the number of trainees is less than three. All training is carried out on your site using your equipment for your convenience, allowing operators to be trained on the actual machines they operate. 

Additionally, our training courses are carried out according to nationally recognised ITSSAR, AITT, or BRITTOp standards, as recommended by HSE Approved Code of Practice L117 (Rider-Operated Lift Trucks – Operator Training).

To complete the training on your site, we will require:

  • A suitable room or area for the theory sessions. 
  • A suitable area for the practical sessions. 
  • An appropriate machine. 
  • A suitable load for practical training. 

Please also take note of our maximum training ratio: 

  • 3 x Trainees.
  • 1 x FLT.
  • 1 x Instructor.
