Hints and tips for forklift training in and around Smethwick

If you have come to Smethwick Forklifts & Forklift Training to find forklift training in and around Smethwick then we would like to give you some tips.

Whilst you are looking for forklift training in and around Smethwick you might like to be aware that an employer was fined £2,000 and ordered to pay over £800 in costs when a HSE inspector noticed an employee being lifted eight feet into the air on a lift truck to fit a company sign to their own premises. Although no one was injured on the occasion, this incident had all the hallmarks of an accident waiting to happen. Accidents involving fork lift trucks account for a large proportion of accidents in the workplace and it is an employer’s responsibility to ensure that drivers are properly trained and use the equipment properly.

When you are looking into forklift training in and around Smethwick you might like to be aware that the proprietor of a waste firm was fined £20,000 and ordered to pay costs of over £6,000 following an incident when one of his employees died after the lift truck he was driving fell from a weighbridge and toppled on top of him causing fatal head injuries. It was found that the lift truck had no seatbelt and no railings had been provided.

Whilst you are looking for forklift training in and around Smethwick you might like to be aware that a lift truck driver working at a sawmill was fined £1,750 after an incident in which he was driving a lift truck with a stack of 12 modular sheds. The sheds obscured the drivers vision and as a result he hit a fellow employee with the load causing a fractured pelvis, cuts and bruises. It is important that individuals are aware that they, as well as their employer, have duties under the law to take reasonable care of the health and safety of others who may be affected by their acts or omissions at work. In this case the employer had employed an in-house lift truck trainer and the driver had received regular refresher training and re-testing and as a result it was the employee not the employer that was fined for this incident.
