As a major employer Greenfield’s responsibility to ensure all the staff have quality training and are competent to carry out their driving roles safely. This includes keeping them up to date with their current forklift truck training licences. This is probably one of the most dangerous pieces of unguarded equipment moving around the factory buildings and outside spaces, in close proximity to pedestrians, so safety is paramount.

Recently all company approved forklift truck drivers underwent a two day refresher course specifically covering driver skills assessment, as well as classroom based instructional techniques in line with the latest legislation. The training course was run by Chris Major training Ltd our training provider ensuring all the staff where properly trained to use the equipment competently and safely in a factory environment.
