Lift Truck and Mechanical Handling Equipment

Employers are required to provide basic training and testing for all mechanical handling equipment operators - even if it is a secondary or occasional part of their job role.Trained operators reduce the risk of truck related accidents in the workplace, and ensure proper use and maintenance of equipment.

PETA provides lift truck and mechanical handling training from novice to instructor level. Courses are delivered at our dedicated lift truck facility located in Portsmouth or alternatively at your workplace using your own equipment and held at a time to suit your team's shift patterns. 

Our training services cover a wide selection of mechanical handling equipment, ranging from Container Handlers, Slinging and Lifting and Mobile Elevated Platforms through to 360 Excavators, Industrial Tug Units and Mobile and Quayside Crane Assessments.
