Dumper Truck Training - SB Skills Solutions in Lancashire

Dump Truck


Like any heavy machinery, dump trucks can be dangerous if they are not operated properly, and it is the responsibility of employers and site managers to ensure that their employees, visitors, and third parties are offered a safe working environment. Dumper truck training courses ensure that delegates have the skills and knowledge necessary to ensure the safe use of this type of machinery or vehicle.

Courses are available from industry relevant accreditation boards including CPCS, and the experienced SB Skills Solutions team can create and offer a customised training solution to your employees. This ensures that delegates are compliant with health and safety regulations, and further ensures that they have the core competencies to safely operate any machinery required. SB Skills Solutions Ltd’s instructors are qualified and experienced, and we can provide training to operators of any skill level.

SB Skills Solutions Ltd are a national training provider offering articulated dump truck training and other safety training courses to the construction, engineering, and other heavy industries.

Participant Requirements

Our safety training courses are geared towards those working in the construction and related industries. We offer practical and theory training, which means that all candidates should possess good English writing and verbal communication skills to ensure the successful completion of the training.

Who Should Take Dumper Truck Training?

ADT training is an important health and safety requirement for dumper truck operators. Any employee that uses these vehicles on a regular basis should take the course, while supervisors and managers that may need to supervise or even take over the operation of these machines should also enrol. We can offer training to individuals from your organisation, as well as to groups.

Course Objectives

The objective of dumper driver training is to ensure the safety of sites where this machinery is used. The machines are heavy and can be potentially dangerous. Users will work towards receiving accreditation from the relevant board. In the case of CSPS dump truck training, the objective is for the candidate to successfully achieve their blue competence card.

What Will Participants Learn?

It is important that operators learn how their machinery and their working processes fit into the overall safety of a site. As such, an overall understanding of construction safety will be taught. Candidates will be taught how to assess the safety requirements of a site, how to conduct pre-checks of the machinery, and how to safely operate the dumper truck. They will also receive training on the safe shutdown and storage of the dump truck.
