The Walkie Stacker is an increasingly common piece of equipment. Our Walkie stacker training is an effective way to manage employer obligations.

It is an employer’s responsibility under the Worksafe Act to ensure users are trained in machine safe operation. Additionally, operators are required to have been formally trained in the use of the equipment by a qualified and competent person. Finally, operators have to and maintain that competency.

These machines are used in small warehouses as a primary load shifting machine, as well as in large operations supplementing forklifts. They are particularly useful in tight warehouse or dock areas.

We Work With...

Thank you to the team from One Stop Training for the Straddle Carrier, Driver and Spotter training you delivered to our team. The training delivered to both our new drivers/spotters and recertification of our experienced drivers was much appreciated.

We were comfortable with the whole process from beginning to end. The assistance we received in tailoring the program to meet our specific and unique requirements was excellent, nothing was too much effort and One Stop Training kept in constant touch to ensure we were happy with the proposed training before it went ahead.

The trainer was experienced and knowledgeable in the operation of a range of straddle carriers and heavy plant machinery which made the new drivers feel immediately at ease. Even our experienced straddle carrier drivers were impressed with the trainers industry background and his ability to translate this to our particular model/brand of straddle carrier.

We would use One Stop Training again and recommend them to others who require a training provider experienced in the operation of specialised plant equipment in a high risk work environment.
