The users of the charity received training on how to operate powered stackers safely. Toyota also provided free safety resources that including personal protective equipment and safety posters.
Simon Hart, Business Manager explains ““Work at the social enterprise includes packing and despatching goods. A recent job for a blue chip media company involved receiving 25 separate pallets in a short time frame, which we repacked into canvas goody-bags, and delivered for a prestigious awards ceremony in London. The truck gets plenty of use and training was needed to make sure we were using the truck safely and productively.”
Simon adds “We were overwhelmed with the professionalism of Marc, he took his time to make sure each operator understood how to operate the truck. This seemed a simple task for Marc as his knowledge of the product was first-rate.”
Marc Paxford, Operator Training Manager says, “We are dedicated to improving safety within the workplace and once we were made aware of the excellent work Re-instate offer the local community we wanted to help”.
Marc adds, “All people on a site – operators and supervisors are responsible for site safety and ensuring processes are carried out effectively. As a supplier of material handling equipment we also feel responsible for operator’s safety. This is given additional importance when the operators have little or no experience of operating material handling equipment. The training course was well received and a great day was had by all”.
