5 ways onsite training benefits your business

forklift refresher training courses

Forklifts are used to move materials from one place to another and are often used for moving heavy loads or large amounts of materials in warehouses. Forklift operators have to be certified on the lift truck or machine they are using to keep your workplace compliant. The objective is to create a safer work environment. On-site training is always advisable when it comes to forklift training, this is due to a number of benefits which we will explore in this blog.

Here at PD Training, we offer forklift and specialist training courses that can be delivered on your site.

The common benefits of onsite forklift benefits:

It saves time before, during and after training

Onsite forklift training offers more flexibility than off-site training. There is no travelling for delegates and training can be done around shifts and employee rotas and employees aren’t taken away from work for any longer than is necessary, so any effect on productivity is minimised.

Cost effective training

Onsite training is more cost-effective than off-site training as you aren’t covering the overheads of a training centre or additional expenses like accommodation.

The training is relevant

Just one wrong move of the forklift operator can compromise his and others’ safety at the site. When the lift truck training is delivered onsite, the course content is more engaging and relevant to the delegate’s working environment. This way, delegates learn the operating requirements and limitations of their own machines in their everyday environment and the outcome is easy to apply once the training is complete.

Operators learn quicker and retain what they learn easier

By already working on the site they are learning at, they will understand the site-specific safety procedures, restrictions and hazards. It will also out them at ease to learn in an environment where they feel comfortable in their surroundings.

Conclusion

There are so many benefits to choosing onsite forklift training instead of off-site training, so contact us to book your training in today!
