Telehandler Gold Card
A telescopic handler or telehandler is a mobile all terrain multi-purpose machine fitted with a variable height/reach telescopic boom and a lifting attachment. The most common attachments are forks, but telehandlers can be fitted with a variety of attachments for different types of loads. Some other attachment types available are:
- Work Platforms
- Earth moving buckets
- Crane/ Lifting jibs
If the telehandler is being fitted with attachments, please contact us to discuss the required licence as these can vary depending on the size of the machine and the attachment you are using. If the telehandler is being used with forks only, then you should look at obtaining a Telehandler Gold Card. Like the EWPA Yellow Card, the Gold Card is a competency based licence which will ensure that your duty as both an employer and employee are satisfied.
