Hand Trolley Initial Training Course

This module is designed to train persons who are responsible for controlling the use of Hand Trolleys when used on Network Rail managed infrastructure.

It is designed to develop a person’s knowledge, understanding and skills in the safe use of hand trolleys as defined in standards listed below and is therefore particularly suited to persons required to prove their competence in these areas.

    At the end of the training the delegate will be able to:
    • Carry out the necessary preparations in line with work requirements
    • Complete appropriate pre-use checks to ensure that the hand trolley is fit for purpose.
    • Select and use personal protective equipment appropriate for using a hand trolley.
    • Understand what safe systems of work are required to be put in place prior to the hand trolley being placed on the track.
    • Assemble, load, operate and control the hand trolley safely taking account of the manufacturer’s instructions.
    • Control and operate the hand trolley safely taking account of the manufacturer’s instructions.

Before attending this training a person should have successfully completed function specific induction training (e.g. Track, Signalling, Electrification), hold a current Sentinel Track Safety Card and worked on the track infrastructure for at least one month.

Our training rooms feature a modern sleek design with minimal distractions allowing our candidates to emerse themselves fully in the expert training provided.

Delegates will have access to their own private canteen with cooking facilities, refrigerators and card accepting vending machines. Within a 5 minute drive from the rooms you can find a Morrisons Supermarket, Italian, Indian and Chinese restaurants as well as Scotlands largest indoor shopping centre in East Kilbride.

We find that once our clients experience the professional and friendly delivery of our trainers they seldom look elsewhere for future training. Our trainers work closely with each delegate ensuring that all attendees receive the information and tools required to give them the best chance of course success.
