With the ability to provide IPAF, ITSSAR, PASMA and RTITB accredited courses; BJB Lift Trucks is the solution for all your individual and corporate training requirements.

Our experience and involvement with the renewables, petrochemical, food processing, construction, transport and warehousing industries has enabled our training instructors to become familiar with a wide variety of common place and specialised plant machinery.

BJB Lift Trucks has a team of fully qualified instructors ready to provide thorough forklift training plus a wide range of mobile plant equipment, engineering and workplace related courses either in our bespoke Operator Training Centre or at client’s premises nationwide. We can also offer training out of normal office hours to cater for continuous process environments.

In addition to our own highly experienced team, we have strong partnerships with associate companies which enable BJB Lift Trucks to offer clients an extended range of accredited courses including, First Aid, IOSH, Occupational Health and HABC.

Conducting lift truck courses or training on other types of mechanical handling equipment at the customer’s premises is an option available to all commercial clients, assuming they can provide a practical training area and an indoor space for classroom purposes. This convenient option benefits the customer by

  • Operators are trained in an environment and use equipment they are familiar with.
  • Potential improvements in operator performance and productivity.
  • If required, instructors can highlight site specific safety and operational considerations that may help reduce risk, reduce accidents, reduce damage to equipment, reduce damage to stock and generally promote best practise methods of operation.
  • Minimising staff absence from the work environment.

Because our accredited training courses are regularly monitored by our awarding bodies, (IPAF, ITSSAR, PASMA and RTITB) you can be sure of consistent standards and when a Certificate of Training is issued, it means that operator has met the standards required by the course criteria.

Training should be at the top of any employer’s list. Accidents involving forklift trucks and other plant equipment still occur frequently, with many leading to serious injury and, in some cases, a fatality. All companies that operate Health and Safety and Risk Assessment policies are legally obliged to ensure their staff receives the appropriate training. For example,

Employers responsibilities under section 2 of HASAWA:

  • Employers must, so far as is reasonably practicable:
  • Ensure the health, safety and welfare of their employees.
  • Provide and maintain safe plant and safe systems of work.
  • Ensure the safe handling storage and transportation of articles and substances.
  • Provide information, instruction, training and supervision.

With courses available for operators with no formal experience through to certificated operators requiring refresher training or wishing to convert to a different type of machine, BJB have the expertise and commitment to meet customer needs.
