Loading Shovel Training

Loading shovels by their nature can be, in the wrong hands, dangerous to work with or near. Everyone involved in the use of a loading shovel should have the appropriate training carried out by a recognised training company and own a Certificate of Training. A loading shovel is classed as a self-propelled wheeled machine with a front-mounted attachment (bucket or forks) that loads or excavates when the loader is driven forwards.
