Why your business needs Pallet Truck Instructor Training

All too often, employers overlook pedestrian pallet truck (ppt) training. However, using a pedestrian pallet truck without proper training or supervision is a big risk. Pallet trucks are “proper trucks”! When pallet truck incidents occur, heavy pallets and equipment can cause serious injuries (foot, ankle and leg injuries are common) and incur huge fines, as well as damage to products and the warehouse. Fortunately, the majority of accidents can be prevented by learning the correct practices for safe and efficient operation from a fully trained and qualified Pallet Truck Instructor.

At the RTITB Instructor Academy, we believe employee safety should be a top priority in all materials handling equipment operations, which is why we created our Pedestrian Pallet Truck (PPT) Instructor course. This course will provide your employees with the knowledge and skills to make sure that the people they train feel confident using a ped pallet truck correctly. In the past anyone wanting to deliver training on a pallet truck needed to do a full counterbalance forklift instructor course, this is onerous and costly for businesses where there are dedicated operators and team leaders of pallet truck operations. The new Pallet Truck Instructor course from the RTITB Instructor Academy reduces costs and offers a sensible approach to compliance and improved safety.

By the end of the course, your Instructors will be able to deliver safe and efficient pallet truck operator training. Plus, as with all RTITB warehouse equipment training, delivering this engaging training course will also help to boost employee morale and job satisfaction in your business.

In the Pedestrian Pallet Instructor Truck course, our team of industry experienced, credible instructors will cover the following:

  • Health and Safety
