Lifting and Travelling with Suspended Loads using Telehandlers

The lifting of suspended loads with telehandlers and travelling with those loads, is generally more hazardous than lifting unit loads on the forks of a telehandler

Basic telehandler operator training does not include lifting or travelling with suspended loads.

If these tasks are to be carried out the employer must ensure that the operator is suitably trained and assessed as competent. As the majority of basic training courses only deal with fork-mounted unit
loads, only training providers who can demonstrate having appropriate expertise of suspended loads and lifting operations with telehandlers or cranes should be selected.

Any training should include an appropriate element of slinging and signalling.
