As is the risk to any goods and property. Forkwise Northern in Wakefield can provide that training.

Safety is at the heart of our training

For the trainee. For the employees they work with. And for the equipment and goods that they’ll be transporting or navigating around. It’s why our courses are certified by the British Safety Council too. Proper use of a forklift means improved competence and reduced risk of accident. It also mitigates the risk of equipment damage and therefore the risk of any financial losses incurred by your employer or business. It’s a level of training that has earned us over 137 5* reviews on See our specialities below.
