GTR TRAINING Services Ltd is recognised throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE), We are in business from over 25 years experience of setting training standards, accreditation and monitoring.
The GTRTRAINING accreditation schemes are supported by legal requirements for training; the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 prescribes a legal duty to provide adequate training and instruction to all their employees. This is reinforced by the Provision & Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 which states that all persons using work equipment must be trained, including the methods of using equipment, any risks and precautions to be taken. Though accreditation schemes are not “mandatory, recognition by the HSE is intended to help set and maintain professional training standards and aid employers in selecting training organisations or lift-truck suppliers who offer a good standard of training” (ACOP L117).
Their accreditation schemes and standards are guided by the Approved Code of Practice for Rider-operated lift trucks: Operator training (ACOP L117).
We have 4000 sq ft of training facilities at our training centres located in Leicestershire which are fully accredited to provide operator and instructor training.
Our training centres are fully equipped with heating, air conditioned training room, kitchen facilities, ample parking and of course a large area for practical training with all aspects of forklift driving operations available.
