Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
Business is about people, and we get a lot of interest in our Movers & Shakers items, where we list new appointments, promotions and staff movements.
These notices are useful, especially for customer-facing staff, because they make it easier for the market to keep track of their contact points with your company.
There’s obviously also a feel-good element to these announcements, with the appointee seeing their name in print associated with your company. And sometimes, in big organisations, it helps colleagues keep up with staff movements.
When you next make a staff change, don’t forget to tell - and we’ll tell everyone else.

"I am new RTITB instructor which I am now registered I wanted to know if I can teach forklift using my ITSAR certificate on RTITB course I know I might have to register it but that dosnt worry me just need to know if my ITSAR course is ok to teach, I have RTITB counterbalance but Reach ITSAR, do I need to register with RTITB to do this or do I have to do it again on RTITB".

"IMHO, it is not JUST Crown inc though, while Crown inc is without a doubt one of the players, I am hearing all the time about forklift and air compressor dealerships and even non-dealership service providers, that want to call travel one thing to the techs, and something else to the customer (unpaid commuting time to the tech,paid for travel time to the customer). They recognize the Federal law, but don't care because they expect the 'risk' to be worth the 'reward'. ".
