Other Training & Forklift Courses in Sussex
As well as our forklift training for Kent, London, Sussex and Surrey we also provide full theory & practical training courses for indoor scissor-lifts.
The training is in line with the course content of our forklift training courses, but are usually only one or two days in duration.
Each Scissor Lift, has it’s own emergency manual lowering device & this must be fully explained and demonstrated by your instructor and then demonstrated by every operator, it is also always advised by us, that all workers around this machine, should also understand the emergency lower procedure, as it could help greatly if someone operating at height, suffered illness or stroke and another qualified operator was not on hand to help that person in distress.
Your instructor will explain & demonstrate the safe body movements, needed for any manual handling within your physical & practical capabilities.
You will afterwards then yourself be asked to show that you have understood the training, by then carrying out a manual handling task yourself, in a safe and controlled fashion,including the palmer grip.
Other types of information such as weights of lift recommended as safe for male & females and also a 25 Question & Answer theory test paper will be part of the course.
Plus explanations and films of the back and neck,and how manual handling injuries can easily occur. The course is also very informative, as to how to avoid many types of manual handling altogether, by way of apparatus or machinery, rolling work conveyors & staged lifting tables, pallet-stacker pallet trucks etc. Our DVD Training films consist of 3 types, office, warehouse & yard areas and machines such as mowers & small building machinery being lifted on & off vans and lorries.
