Forklift safety course

Mentor Training has launched the first-ever Institution of Occupa­tional Safety and Health (IOSH)- accredited safety management course tailored to people who oversee forklift operations.

IOSH Managing Safely: Fork­lift Operations recognises the important role in safety played by managers and supervisers. The four-day course was developed in close partnership with IOSH and is exclusive to Mentor.

Mentor director Stuart Taylor said: “We have seen the Health & Safety Executive highlight man­agement’s responsibilities, and [there has been] a rise in the numbers of managers and direc­tors prosecuted for neglect.”

The nine-module course pro­vides delegates from any industry with a practical understanding of what must be done to ensure safety in their teams’ work, with added reference throughout to lift trucks and the environments in which they operate. A full addi­tional module is specific to the challenges of materials handling.
