GB Forklifts prides itself not only on its selling and hiring of forklift trucks but also on providing Lift Truck Operator Training to the highest of standards. Not only do we want individuals to succeed in the safe operating of the equipment, we also would like to know that the individuals have a thorough understanding of the equipment they are operating and it is the correct type of equipment for their particular environment.
GB Forklifts offers training for the complete novice through to refresher training of experienced operators, as advised by the Health and Safety Executive. Our training is provided on all types of industrial equipment and we can also adapt courses to suit the individual's experience/company requirements.
We pride ourselves on only providing the sufficient training required and never fluctuate from this responsibility.

As all our training is based on-site (where you work), operators also have a full understanding and awareness of their own working environment.
