Health and Safety Training Courses

Why Do We Need Training?

Health and safety law is designed to reduce the chance of serious accidents occurring, but still there are far too many accidents occurring in the workplace.
Currently, there are over 8000 accidents reported annually to the Health and Safety executive involving mechanical handling equipment. We work to the latest standards to try to reduce chances of accidents occurring.
Well trained operators are not only less likely to injure others, but they should cause less expensive damage to company property.

Courses & Training

We offer a comprehensive range of courses and driver/operator training for heavy-handling machinery, including Counterbalance Forklift, Reach-truck, VNA, Telescopic Handler, Side-loader, Rough-terrain Fork Truck and associated vehicles.
Safe Handling also provide training on plant machinery such as Skid-steer Loaders, HIAB Truck Cranes, Gantry Cranes, Slinging Operations and Site Shunter Operator. We can also offer a variety of working at height training solutions including Scissor Lifts, Cherry Pickers, Tower Scaffolds, Ladders and Harness/Lanyard use.
