Every year, a number of people are injured and even killed by vehicles on company sites. Many accidents do not result in injury, but cause costly damage to vehicles, equipment and company premises. A lot of these accidents happen at low speed and could easily be prevented by having proper safety procedures in place.
This course is aimed at those in the transport/warehousing sector (for Banksman/Slingers course refer to www.cif.ie) and ensures that companies meet their legal requirements and reduces the risk of costly accidents.
