The need for training?
How long does training take?
The length of any training course will depend on what type of machine is used, the environment it is used in & the experience of the candidates on the training course.
1-day refresher courses for experienced operators that haven’t had any training for at least a 3-5-year period (this is the time period recommended by the HSE to employers whereby staff need to be refresher trained, on all site equipment).
3-5-day courses: for novices who have not received any formal training and have no experience.
All courses begin with theory sessions where candidates learn the theoretical background knowledge of the respective machine they are being trained on. This will include any relevant aspects of current UK statutory legislation, there will be a mandatory theory assessment at some point in the training.
Practical training begins with an explanation as to the operation of the relevant piece of MHE equipment.
Practical elements cover daily machine checks and safe operating techniques – candidates will then practice the operation of the machine until you become proficient, whereby a practical assessment will take place.

I can add loading/unloading of lorries to the training course if required. I have plenty of experience of this, and I am aware to not hold up the day-to-day running of business activities if a company only has one machine available.
