Instruction pedestrian industrial trucks

Accidents are not uncommon when handling pedestrian-controlled industrial trucks - this is shown by accident reports received by the employers' liability insurance associations. It is therefore important to instruct employees about the hazards and the correct operation of pedestrian industrial trucks.

These pedestrian industrial trucks are trained by us

Low lift truck

The low-lift pallet truck is suitable for moving pallets and is pulled by a drawbar. Compared to hand pallet trucks, low-lift trucks are electrically driven and thus facilitate the transport of heavy loads. With us you will learn the correct driving of low lift trucks. 

High lift truck

In contrast to the low lift truck, the high lift truck also has a mast. Thus, horizontal transport and vertical transport is possible, for example, for pallet storage in racks. We show you the correct handling of high lift trucks.
