Forklift Focus-Pre Use Checks

Don’t forget to checkout our range of forklift training courses.

Here at InLine Training we believe that ALL operators of forklift trucks have a duty of care to ensure that their equipment is checked at the start of each shift. Conducting a thorough Pre Shift Check can help reduce the number of forklift truck related incidents occurring as a result of mechanical failure.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) estimates that as much as 18% of forklift incidents happen as a result of mechanical breakdown / Failure through lack of proper equipment maintenance. These incidents may have been avoided had a proper pre use check systems been in place.

Our instructors often arrive onsite to see that the employer has no Pre Use Check system in place. This is where we come in. Here at InLine Training ALL of our forklift truck courses cover the importance of Pre Shift Checks. We work with our clients to educate not just operators of forklift trucks but also managers and supervisors providing knowledge of what should be checked and why.
