COMPETENCY SAFETY NOTICE: The HSE in the UK stipulate the rules for employers to follow when choosing a training provider. No one training body is favoured above another so it is always an employer’s responsibility to choose the correct training for the equipment to be used. Please bear in mind that a trailer is classed as a separate item of equipment to the tractor towing it. Follow this link for a simple competency Q&A. Click Here

IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE: CPCS licence holders WILL need additional training to tow a trailer. A CPCS forklift or telehandler licence does not allow for the driver to tow a trailer. ALWAYS check with your training provider as to exactly what your course covered before operating any equipment.

To comply with PUWER (Reg. 9 Training), you should: “ensure that self-propelled work equipment, including any attachments or towed equipment, is only driven by workers who have received appropriate training in the safe driving of such work equipment“. For a copy of the PUWER regulations, Click Here.
