Training During the National Lock Down

Training During the National Lock Down

Shield H&S will continue to offer its training services throughout this latest lock down period - This is following the guidance of HSE and our accrediting body RTITB - 

"Employers are required to ensure that their workers are trained and competent to operate any industrial lift truck equipment they use. Initial or refresher training may be required for new starters, for existing staff using new types of equipment, or as a refresher for existing workers. Lift-truck operators, even those who are trained and experienced, need to be routinely monitored in the workplace and, where necessary, retested or given refresher training to make sure they continue to operate lift trucks safely."

It remains the employer’s responsibility to not allow anyone to operate lift trucks on any premises without authorisation. Authorisation should only be given where employees have completed suitable training in line with the guidance and have achieved an appropriate level of operating ability.
