LIFT TRUCK DRIVER TRAINING AND SUPERVISION IN TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENTS

Lift trucks are widely used throughout industry for moving materials and goods, but they are reported to be involved in about a quarter of all workplace transport accidents. The deaths and injuries caused can ruin lives and businesses. Even when an incident does not cause injury, it can still mean costly damage to lift trucks, buildings, fittings and goods.

The Cold Chain Federation recommends businesses that operate lift trucks in cold stores ensure their lift truck driver and supervisor training includes procedures on the specific hazards associated with operating a lift truck within this type of environment.
