What will I learn on a reach forklift training course?

We cover a range of topics within our reach forklift training courses, all of which are crucial in upholding the regulations set by the Health & Safety Executive.

Operating the forklift

This also ensures that participants feel confident in their ability to drive the vehicle, which is particularly important when manoeuvring in tight warehouse spaces that the reach forklift can get to.

Calculating loads

Due to its ability to reach high shelves, we also highlight the importance of correctly calculating loads and knowing the height and weight restrictions of the reach forklift. This is essential in avoiding potential injury and hazardous situations.


Operating a reach forklift requires skill, you must ensure that the goods are correctly stacked and controlled movement is applied when transporting them. We help students master the reach forklift techniques through guided practice by one of our experienced instructors.


Participants will also receive training on how to maintain the forklift vehicle, ensuring that it is kept in functional order and preventing it from damage. This section of the training includes checking the fluid levels, the brakes and the quality of the tyres. 

Operators should report any defects and maintain an awareness of when it is inappropriate to drive the forklift or carry out lifting manoeuvres.

Situational awareness

This aspect of the training involves checking the situation by looking around the forklift for potential hazards, including spillages, physical obstacles and other personnel.  Operators should clear the area before operating the forklift to reduce the risk of accidents in the workplace.
