We appreciate the necessity for employers to ensure that they meet all of the Health & Safety regulations relating to the equipment in the workplace today.
On-site training is the most cost-effective and convenient way for employers to train their workforce. Not only does it reduce the cost of training, but also the trainees have the advantage of using the actual equipment they will be using on a regular basis.
Employers have responsibilities, duties & legal obligations regarding forklift truck safety in the workplace. The main areas of forklift truck legislation are the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations and the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations. These regulations came into force on the 5th December 1998. A lot of companies are unaware of these regulations, yet failure to comply with these regulations could lead to prosecution, unlimited fines and some cases can lead to imprisonment.
