MEWP Training on site in Barnstaple this week!

More up in the air training on MEWP’s, this week in Barnstaple on a construction site. Before the rains came we managed to get these chaps through their 3a (Scissor Lift) & 3b (Mobile Boom) training. 40 feet plus up, with the wind speed being monitored by themselves (i gave them my hand held wind gauge – Anemometer to use), they attained a very safe standard. Call Steve on 07870 901167 or email : to discuss your training requirements.

More recent training carried out in the South West

Recently whilst on site training these chaps on their J4 JCB Teletruk, they asked if they could automatically use their site “lifting platform” that they had. I said – “Only if you demonstrate that you:

a. Have all of the Reports of Thorough Examination up to date for all of the equipment involved. Forklift – check. Man cage – check. My harness & adjustable Lanyard fitted correctly – check.

b. Risk Assessment & Rescue plan completed – check.

Well up you go gents! Happy to help out where previous training courses & providers hadn’t bothered to cover this off with the staff.

Sometimes its the little things that mean a lot to staff & companies. To discuss your training requirements call Steve on 07870 901167 or email:

AITT Accredited Telehandler Training

Spent a great 3 days in Gloucester this week, conducting Telehandler training on a site that made for some great training, the delegates benefitted from using all available attachments on the various tasks required around the 200 acre site. Lorries were unloaded as well. All delegates were excellent, in both their attitude & practical application. I very much look forward to a return to this location in the Gloucestershire sun!

A long 10 hr day worked today helping more people become compliant and gain Accredited operator qualifications on a Lorry Loader, met this cracking team in Cullompton at 07.30am (even with the clocks going forward) and we set about training! 10 hrs later they are confident, had a keen willingness to learn, alongside an already safe attitude to working. Standards achieved – left site about 5pm. All happy…..things learnt…..wiser than at the start of the day! Stay safe all at James Moore Electrical Ltd.

Pivot Steer Conversion Course run in Worcester this week!

This experienced Counter balance operator was converted over to the companies Pivot Steer forklift earlier this week in a 1 day course run up in Worcester. The delegate demonstrated a safe attitude and a willingness to learn a new machine, which by his own admission was technically a harder machine to operate. Using these machines requires lots of practise (which he had) and a lot of concentration. Well done Sandro! Now stay safe!
