forklift-training-coursesAs part of a leading UK buying co-operative with some of the most advanced regional warehouse and distribution centres, BAKO NORTH WESTERN is now able to offer fork lift training in accordance with the current Health and Safety guidelines as set out by its accreditation to the RTITB (Road Transport Industry Training Board), to meet individual company needs.

From its base in Preston, Lancashire, BAKO NORTH WESTERN’s fully qualified instructors Tony O’Hara and John Smith can now apply their combined 30 years of practical working experience with mechanical handling equipment to train individual company fork lift operatives to the very highest professional standards, enabling them to award RTITB certification to help companies comply with the Approved Code of Practice L117 (1999). The fact that these qualified instructors have hands on experience enables them to relate to customers and the needs of their on going operations, as opposed to just theory.

BAKO NORTH WESTERN delivers a core range of theoretical and practical training courses for all levels, including novice and experienced fork lift drivers and can also tailor programmes to meet specific needs.

BAKO instructor Tony O’Hara commented, “Although Bako is based in Preston, we can complete training at the company’s workplace or at our fully accredited training centre.

Bako’s indepth knowledge and experience of running and managing a major distribution organisation and involving all types of materials handling equipment has necessitated that our own staff are trained to the highest industry standards.

Our company culture has always been based upon a total commitment to understanding customer needs and offering cost effective solutions and now, we have taken this further to use our resources to provide professional fork lift truck training.

We take exceptional pride in our adaptability and professionalism, providing cost effective support for every type and size of business. From training of single numbers of operators, right through to meeting the volume of drivers and logistical pressure of major manufacturing, retailing and distribution companies – BAKO NORTH WESTERN can deliver the goods. Our courses include full management and documentation of company training information and records. We can organise refresher training and maintain operator databases to ensure compliance with the latest ‘best practice’ and legal requirements.”
