Updated forklift training courses enhance learning experience
14th April 2021
We're pleased to announce that we have further developed our range of lift truck operator courses to continue to enhance the learning experience for delegates nationwide.
At Mentor, we’ve always taken pride in the quality of our courses – not only are they accredited by leading bodies, they undergo rigorous internal development prior to release to ensure that they are of a high standard.
All courses are regularly reviewed to ensure they meet (or exceed) the latest H&S guidelines and best practice, but we've taken our core counterbalance, reach and pallet truck courses a step further.
Our most popular courses have recently received a fresh modern look, and we’ve included new video content and updated graphics to enhance the learning experience.
Not only is it crucial that operators understand the fundamentals of safe practice, but they must appreciate the severity of the consequences if they don’t stick to it. To this end, we’ve added some behavioural elements into more of our basic operator training courses, that encourage good practice for the long term.
Counterbalance and reach courses now incorporate a ‘costs and consequences’ section, which includes a hard-hitting film, to reinforce the real-world impact of forklift accidents - a topic which rarely features in basic operator training but that we believe can help to build vital awareness.
Within these courses, more direct emphasis has also been placed on L117 Approved Code of Practice, to raise its profile as a key reference document and definitive guide to forklift training and safety.
What’s more, our pallet truck courses have been further tailored in line with their respective ABA categories to ensure that the content of each course is even more specific to the particular truck, giving delegates the most relevant training.
