Observations are key

Importance of wearing the seatbelt and why it is there

Remembering to always lower the forks when moving around site


I have learnt to be more aware when driving the forklift and to check all around before operating and moving off



A very productive day and learnt alot about health & safety and fork trucks


Thoroughly recommend employing A+ Training as your training provider, learnt so much that i did not already know


I learnt loads about the health & safety, i enjoyed the course, the instructor was brilliant with explaining things


The isolation of power button on the charger is so important. Never knew this before.


A very informative course, well worth attending. The instructor was very professional, very good in every aspect. Thank you for highlighting my bad habits
