forklift refresher course priceThe HSE has no rules setting what is the period to be given to forklift operator to take refresher course. However, employers have an important role at this aspect. It’s the employer’s obligation to make an evaluation periodically and keep an eye of their forklift operators’ performance.

Routine assessment of the forklift operators can definitely save you from lots of trouble. If you are having frequent accidents and near misses at the workplace, this may be the time to make an assessment to send them to a refresher course.

Who Can Receive Forklift Refresher Course

This course is intended for those forklift drivers who have had a formal training and wanting to make their skills current.

Employers can also send their operators to refresher course for some sort of reasons, such as: they have been involved in an accident, to correct operators’ unsafe conduct, to make them aware of present legislation and newest standards, or for just routine evaluation.

Price of the Training 

The duration of training of the refresher course is shorter than the novice training, therefore, it is much cheaper. The course can be taken in just half day or 1 full day (max). There will be lectures, written test and practical test at the end of the training course.
