Forklift Trucks

The use of forklift trucks on University premises can present a hazard, not only to those operating the truck if they are not competent, but also to those in the vicinity, particularly if outside on the campus roads where other road users and pedestrians are present.

Please refer to University guidance PDF format for further detail on the safety arrangements that should be put in place, including detail on operator training.
