Forward Tipping Dumper Training - SB Skills Solutions in Lancashire

Forward Tipping Dumper


The forward tipping dumper has been a critical component in site maintenance and construction work for 30 years or more. In fact, in this time, the basic concept of the machinery has barely changed. Thankfully, however, there have been improvements to elements like steering and strength of the dumper. New models of dumper, as well as extra and additional attachments have also been launched.

The power of the machinery, as well as the ways in which it is used, means that there are numerous potential dangers associated with this type of vehicle. There are dangers associated with the loading and unloading of the dumper bucket. There are also dangers associated with driving and moving the machine, and even acts like climbing on and off the vehicle can be hazardous if attempted incorrectly. Without safe and efficient use of the dumper, it can lead to accidents and potential injuries.

Forward tipping dumper training provided by SB Skills Solutions Ltd ensures that your operators know how to safely and efficiently operate these machines. They will be taught current legislation governing the use of dumpers, as well as general on-site health and safety. We offer courses accredited by the CPCS or NPORS, and we can customise training to meet the skill of your operators, as well as the specific hazards that your employees might face while operating the trucks. You can browse all the courses we offer right here on our site or call us with any questions about the training services we provide across Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside, the North West and rest of UK.

Participant Requirements

Our training courses have theory and practical elements, so it is important that all delegates have good written and verbal English skills.

All students are also required to have successfully passed the touch screen Health, Safety and Environment test for Operatives course within the past two years.
