Using telescopic material handlers on farm and roads

Health and Safety

If you are using a telescopic handler, or any sort of rider operated lift truck, on your farm or on the road then you need to ensure you are meeting your obligations for driving that particular type of vehicle.

Materials handlers are covered by LOLER (the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998) as well as the general requirement to ensure that anyone who drives them is suitably trained and competent.
