Who Do We Recommend Attends The Course?

All personnel completing lifting operations with a Tele-handler

Additional Requirements:

A lift plan must be devised by a competent person and available for reference by the operator. When devising the plan, consideration must be taken to ensure that:

  • there is sufficient clearance between the load and front of the machine to account for load swing which may require (depending on model) the fitment of a jib

  • boom extension is sufficient to ensure clearance between the telehandler chassis and load but no more than needed

  • that the length of the lifting accessories minimises the travel height of the boom whilst not exceeding the included angle of the accessory

  • hand lines are specified to allow appropriate external control of the load whilst keeping the slinger/signaller clear of the machine’s travel path.

Health & Safety Training / Testing

Health & Safety Test Specific to your chosen category MUST be passed before a CPCS Technical Test can be Taken.
