Forklift Truck Manager/Supervisor Awareness
The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) states that employers must ensure all people who use, supervise or manage work equipment have received adequate training. This includes: 

  • Correct use of the equipment
  • Any risks from its use
  • Precautions to be taken

The HSE Approved Code of Practice also states that employers have a responsibility to provide adequate supervision. It is therefore essential that supervisors have sufficient training and knowledge to recognise safe and unsafe practices in their working environment.

The Forklift Truck Manager/Supervisor Awareness Course covers the following:

  • Relevant legislation
  • Types of lift truck
  • Lift truck attachments
  • Role of the supervisor
  • Operator selection and training
  • Precautions to be taken
  • Safe site lift truck stability
  • Other hazards
  • Safe operating procedure
  • Safety rules
