Skip or Hook Lift Operator
WHY TAKE THIS COURSE?
The course is for anyone who needs to operate either a skip or hook lift.
The quiet staple of the work site, skips are for when a little rubbish bin just won't cut it. But when you've filled one up, how on earth could any mere mortal carry it? Enter, the skip or hook lift—though they were probably there to deliver it in the first place. In giving candidates the confidence to operate either a skip or hook lift, this course is a welcome addition to the 4safety's remit, enabling cadidates to operate their machine quickly and efficiently. And hopefully not dropping the skip onto somebody's toes. Ouch.
Whether you're a complete beginner or an experienced operator looking to refresh your skills, we'll ensure the course is suitable, useful and rewarding.

TEACHING AND ASSESSMENT
The course is delivered through a combination of classroom-based tutorials and practical exercises. You will be assessed through theory and practical tests. All of our trainers are accredited.
4safety can train/assess up to three experienced candidates in one day for most equipment/machine courses. If they are not experienced then this will take longer depending on the complexity of the machine, the number of candidates and their aptitude for operating the equipment. The non-equipment based courses can normally accommodate 6 candidates depending on the course and level of experience.
As with all of our courses, we ask if the candidates can read and understand English. We can provide a translator for the entire course or just for the theory if necessary, but there is an extra charge and we need to know this at the booking stage.
