It is vitally important that operators who use vacuum lifters are fully trained in their use. Whilst vacuum lifters bring savings in time and manual handling, they must be used correctly and be in a good condition. Pre-use checks are vital before using the lifter but equally the person carrying them out needs to know how to do it.

We offer two types of training:

1-day training course
