Managing & Supervising Material Handling Equipment Operations


Our managing and supervising material handling equipment (MHE) operations course will enable the managers and supervisors in your business to identify their responsibilities with regards to material handling equipment operations, and will enable them to identify steps that can be taken to minimise risk related to MHE in your workplace. 

The requirement of PUWER is "Every employer shall ensure that any of his employees who supervises or manages the use of work equipment has received adequate training for purposes of health and safety, including training in the methods which may be adopted when using the work equipment, any risks which such use may entail and precautions to be taken."

Attending this course will ensure you are compliant with this legal requirement. 

The course covers the following:

  • walking the floor
  • why are we here?
  • regulations
  • manager and supervisor responsibilities
  • operator training
  • operational safety
  • theory in practice
  • next steps 


The course is assessed at the end and candidates are required to complete a theory test and hazard perception test  in order to succesfully pass and obtain an RTITB accredited certificate. There is a maximum of 12 people allowed on the course and it can be delivered on your premises or at our Instructor Academy in Telford, Shropshire (near Shrewsbury and Wolverhampton). The course is £758+VAT (equivalent to £63.16 per person if you train 12 members of your team). There is no charge for travel and subsistence if we deliver the course on your site.
