What would be the benefits to me of working with RTITB?

Improved Efficiency

  • Operators are trained to be accurate and to get the job right first time, reducing the need for task repetition.
  • You should see a reduction in incidents resulting in lost working time.
  • Improvements in teamwork as operators and other staff gain confidence in their peers.
  • Reductions in staff turnover due to operators feeling valued through investment in training and improved communication between management and operators.
  • An improvement in workplace attitudes amongst operators as their sense of responsibility grows.
  • Improvements in equipment power usage through more efficient usage of hydraulic and steering controls.
  • All RTITB trained counterbalance operators are eligible to enter our Operator of the Year competition. Companies use this to motivate their operators to be more accurate, efficient, safe and productive in their day-to-day work through recognition of their skills.

Reduced Risk

  • Reduction in accidents and incidents.
  • In the event of an investigation you have independently verified evidence of training delivered to the required standard.
  • Operators have a better understanding of how and why things go wrong and, as a consequence, are more likely to operate correctly.

Increased Margins

  • Less pallet damage
  • Less racking damage
  • Less lift truck damage
  • Less product wastage
  • Less infrastructure damage
  • Reduced insurance premiums

All RTITB training is verified via the National Operator Registration Scheme (NORS) as having met the required standard before registration is completed and a unique NORS number is released. That means that all registered operators and their employers have peace of mind in the training that is delivered.
