How thoroughly do you carry out New Starter Driving Assessments?

Following the induction of a new forklift driver you would naturally want to get them started straight away, especially if the job is desperate. Time is money, you are bringing in someone to do a job.

In haste to get the work started, companies sometimes skip through the driving induction just because the trainee has a certificate.

Do you know the validity of their certificate or the standard of previous training? Was full theory given? or was an assessment skipped at the previous company causing the driver’s knowledge to become diluted?

Safe workers are less likely to cause accidents and are proven to be more productive. Should an accident occur, the damage, delays and disruption time caused can be detrimental to productivity and the bottom line.

By assessing operational skills you can gauge the standard of the operator and determine what training is required before they can safely begin using forklift trucks on your site.
