Access Lift Training

We also provide access lift training on -site. Our training covers the use of mobile boom platforms, mobile vertical platforms, relevant legislation, safe usage for operators and those nearby, pre-inspections and much more.

Vehicle Mounted Forklift

Found on the rear of the vehicle, vehicle mounted forklifts can be disconnected and used to offload the contents of the vehicle quickly and easily when traditional methods are not available. They can be used in tight areas and over rough ground such as building sites and small yards. Our training not only covers the use of the vehicle-mounted forklift but also how to attach and release it safely from the vehicle.

Truck Mounted Crane

Usually attached behind the cab of the vehicle, truck mounted cranes allow heavy goods to be offloaded from the vehicle using either a hook, clamp or bucket depending on the nature of the goods. Our training on truck-mounted cranes, HIAB or Palfinger, covers not only the operation but safety awareness when operating, so operators and others are kept safe at all times.
