An order picker forklift is a piece of equipment used to help operators pick and deliver materials needed for filling out orders. They are designed take the forklift operator up to the rack with or without a load. Commonly, the forks hold a load that is being added to, not being put away. Designed for applications that require an operator to be at the same level as the inventory to pick a specific order,
Order pickers are electric and run through the use of rechargeable batteries, very similar to traditional electric forklifts. Order pickers can be manually steered, but in narrow aisle applications, order pickers are commonly guided electronically with wires (usually under the warehouse floor) or mechanically with special profiles fitted on both sides of the aisle and attached to the warehouse floor. Wire guidance systems can be extremely effective when used in the correct setting, and could help reduce the risk of operators hitting the racking, and damaging the forklift, the product, or the racking itself..
Training is available on man-up trucks and is tailored to cover all functions relevant to delegates’ equipment type, working environment and job role.

Firstly, and most importantly we need the use of your Order Picker forklift. Also, an area where we will not be disturbed, with ample space to carry out basic manoeuvres and testing. Pallets and realistic loads appropriate to your business are useful. For the theory lessons, we need sufficient space for the instructor and the trainees to work. A small office with a table, chairs and power will suffice.
All forklift operators are required to wear hi-visibility vests, safety boots and any other personal protective equipment as per the company’s internal risk assessments
