Forklift Training

Expertise is required to operate a forklift. In addition to practical knowledge, the awareness of possible risks and the daily inspection of a forklift are also important. Doornbos trains (future) drivers of forklift trucks and offers the indispensable theory lessons on dangerous incidents and transport. After our one-day training, the brand new forklift drivers can safely take their place behind the wheel. They will have the right papers and sufficient knowledge about the correct, safe and efficient operation of both small and large forklifts.
