HSE Statement: Lift Truck Training COVID-19 Precautions

Please see below information from the HSE, regarding the latest COVID tiers introduced in England, as per 22nd December 2020.

Cleared Statement – Lift truck training and covid precautions

Employers are required to ensure that their workers are trained and competent to operate any industrial lift truck equipment they use. Initial or refresher training may be required for new starters, for existing staff using new types of equipment, or as a refresher for existing workers.

Lift-truck operators, even those who are trained and experienced, need to be routinely monitored in the workplace and, where necessary, retested or given refresher training to make sure they continue to operate lift trucks safely. There is no specific time period in law after which refresher training or a formal assessment is required. However, employers may decide that automatic refresher training or a retest after a set period (for example 3-5 years) is the best way to make sure staff remain competent. 

To reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission, employers and training providers should apply the hierarchy of control to manage the risks of training and consider:

  • Whether the training needs to be done urgently, based on their own assessment of drivers’ competence and experience;
  • If there are other staff with the appropriate training who could carry out the tasks on a short-term basis;
  • Checking in advance of the training going ahead that no one is exhibiting Covid-19 symptoms;
  • Providing a system for entering and leaving sites that maintains social distancing and minimises touch points and shared contact surfaces, such as pens, pointers, or touch screens;
  • Ensuring that staff and all visitors have easy and safe access to toilets and handwashing facilities with hot and cold running water, and that handwashing is carried out at regular intervals;
  • Considering how social distancing can be maintained. This may mean reducing class size where suitable distancing cannot be maintained otherwise;
  • Sanitising shared surfaces such as equipment controls between users;
  • Providing fresh air ventilation wherever possible by opening windows or doors. Mechanical ventilation should not be set to air recirculation mode;
  • Considering use of alternative learning methods such as e-learning or webinars where practicable;
  • Minimising face to face work wherever possible.

Face coverings are not PPE and should not be used as a substitute for suitable risk control measures.

Duty holders in areas in Tier 4 should consult the guidance at Tier 4: Stay at Home - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk). Workers engaged in necessary training activities may travel:

  • within a Tier 4 area;
  • out of a Tier 4 area;
  • to a Tier 4 area from a Tier 1, 2, or 3 area

It remains the employer’s responsibility to not allow anyone to operate lift trucks on any premises without authorisation.  Authorisation should only be given where employees have completed suitable training in line with the guidance at https://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/indg462.pdf and have achieved an appropriate level of operating ability.

Testimonials

"We have always been very pleased with the professionalism and ease of using Morgan Training Solutions in the upskilling of our staff. Today we had a new instructor in place of Steve who normally attends site and has previoulsy set the bar very high with our expectations and we just wanted to express our gratitude to you all for covering our requirements so quickly and professionally.  He was polite, engaging, knowledgeable and a fantastic ambassador to both himself and by association Morgan Training Solutions.  Morgan Training have yet another great associate in their team and whilst we would expect no less, sometimes maintaining those high standards is a challenge." 

"Again, the course was a huge success, delivered in such a way that it was not boring, it was made light hearted and serious when required. We are all grateful for the knowledge. We all felt that it would be a waste of time as we were competent users, but no I can see the benefits and have to concede that that it was anything but a waste of time. A real professional service from initial contact to completion.

 We will certainly recommend and know where to come if we need any conversions training."

"It was your last visit to our site and the professionalism shown with real life understanding that is the reason way we have chosen your services again. You deliver what we require as a business, you work with us to deliver the high standard we strive to attain and our staff are confident under your guidance.  Why would we look elsewhere – thanks for your continued support."

“Having used a number of training companies over the years I am very happy to have now discovered Morgan Training Solutions. From our initial meeting Steve and his team of professional trainers fully understood the training needs of our business and have developed tailor made courses that not only suit our requirements but also ensure that our staff are considered trained in the eyes of the HSE. Staff who have undergone training with Morgan Training Solutions describe it as fun, really enjoyable and very informative. Even experienced operators undergoing refresher training, have come away from the training saying that they have learned things that they previously didn’t know and were not covered with other trainers. I cannot recommend Morgan Training Solutions highly enough.”
“Morgan Training Solutions consistently provide a flexible, high-quality, and cost-effective service for our business. They address all of our plant-equipment training requirements across the country.”
“Further to our conversation this morning after another successful induction session with the FLT drivers I would like to formalise my comments regarding the quality of the training you have provided. The induction session you have developed is first class and considering the training content and the nature of the audience (sometimes fatigued and irritable) you have delivered a difficult subject with utmost professionalism and competence. As I’ve been present during most of the sessions to date I have been particularly impressed with your knowledge about the practicalities of lift truck operation and how you have related this to the daily activities of these operators. I am very happy to be contacted by anyone who would like any additional or further information regarding the induction you are delivering  in a significant and critical risk area.”
“Just some feedback in respect of the courses you have ran for us in the past couple of weeks. The guys who attended the courses have provided nothing but positive feedback. They have expressed how enjoyable both courses were and the level of technical knowledge given was excellent by both instructors. The use of available facilities around site was welcomed to give actual real time training was mentioned by a number of students. Even those who have been operating for a number of years admitted learning something new which shows that upgrade and refresher is essential to the business.You can be assured that we will be returning to you regularly for training in the future. ”
