New & refresher operator training
We offer new operator and refresher training, as well as customised sessions catered to your needs.
Our training sessions help you get the most from your machine and ensure operators know how to operate your electric tug safely.
Why is electric tug operator training important?
Electric tugs don’t require a license to operate, making them an attractive option for businesses looking to maximise operational efficiency with safer material handling solutions.
However, operator training delivers a number of benefits, from ensuring safe movements to increasing operator usage rates.
Ensures safe operation every time
Any industrial equipment comes with hazards and risks. Our operator training equips your operators with the knowledge of how to use an electric tug safely, how to safely connect to loads and tips on how to safely manoeuvre, even the heaviest of loads.
Increase usage and adoption rates
When operators understand how to correctly use a piece of equipment, they’re more likely to use it. Introductory operator training helps maximise adoption rates, increasing your return on investment and productivity.
Prevents against misuse
Equipping operators with the knowledge on the correct operation of an electric tug prevents misuse, which can result in damage.
Our training sessions cover everything from day-to-day maintenance to individual machine capabilities, helping prevent costly misuse to equipment.
