A reach forklift truck is named because they can extend their mast forwards, allowing the forks to enter a racking system to pick up and deposit loads. The operator sits at right angles to the forks.
Reach trucks are a common sight in warehouses throughout the world. Their compact design delivers great manoeuvrability, making them the perfect choice where space is limited. Their low ground clearance and small wheels mean they are traditionally used inside a warehouse
Training on the safe and effective use of reach trucks is delivered on site
Each course involves three stages of testing:
- A theory test – consisting of 25 questions
- Pre-use inspection test
- Practical skills test involving various manoeuvres completed in a safe manner
|Refresher 1-3 Candidates||1|
|Novice 1-3 Candidates||3-5|

Firstly, and most importantly we need the use of your Reach 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
