To satisfy these requirements, all Lift Truck Operators must hold a Certificate of 'Basic Operator Training'.
This training will help ensure the safety of both the Lift Truck Operator and other encroaching personnel.
Also, you may find that insurance is invalid if an untrained operator has an accident!
