Counterbalance forklift training is not in any way an option for companies operating counterbalance forklift trucks on its property. Regulations require all employers to take reasonable steps to ensure the safety among their employees, but courts are always going assign liability to managers and companies who fail to ensure their workers have been correctly trained and hold the appropriate certification.

It’s a well known fact that there are companies out there which offer Counterbalance Forklift Training courses on a pay monthly cost, this involves signing up for finance and usually incurs a very high interest rate and in some cases a deposit.

Normally these companies do not train their pupils direct and ultimately request quotes from companies like us. At Luft Training Services our Counterbalance Forklift Training costs are both competitive and low so you can afford to go direct.
