HELPING WORKERS FROM AIRLIE BEACH TO BOWEN OBTAIN FORKLIFT LICENCES
THE VALUE OF HAVING A FORKLIFT LICENCE
Forklifts are a useful tool in moving and storing heavy materials efficiently, but they can also cause damage to people and products when operated incorrectly. It is important that these powerful machines are only ever operated by certified individuals to minimise accidents and injuries, as well as reduce financial losses from damaged stock.
