New course targets unsafe behaviour
Chesterfield, UK

Mentor Training has developed a new course highlighting the dangers presented by forklifts in the workplace - not just for operators, but for all those working alongside them.
Safely Working with Lift Trucks is a high-impact, low-cost training course which promotes a safe working environment by targeting the behaviour at the root of bad practice.
At just two hours in duration, the course is hard-hitting, but concise, meaning up to 30 delegates in one day can benefit.
The course targets anyone on site whose work involves forklifts - operators, supervisors or staff working in close proximity.
