National Operator Registration Scheme (NORS)

National Operator Registration Scheme (NORS)

If you haven’t already heard of NORS it stands for National Operator Registration Scheme. It is a centralised database of registration, certification and validation system for Forklift Truck Operators as well as anyone else who is a driver of mechanical handling equipment.
The database provides an invaluable as before 2005 there was no database in existence that could provide information about those who are registered and appropriately trained to operate a forklift truck. NORS was introduced by the Road Transport Industry Training Board to rectify this.
For those registered on the NORS system, the registration will last for 3 years, after that time the individual can opt to renew their registration. The Road Transport Industry Training Board after the 3 years will automatically write to the operator to remind them that their refresher training is due and will also remind them of their original forklift truck training provider.
For Forklift operators, the benefits of being listed on NORS are that it allows operators to easily obtain duplicate certificates should the original certificate become lost or damaged, it allows employers to easily verify the details of an operators training as well as providing access to funded training by meeting the requirements of UK educational funding agencies.
For employers, the benefits include an easily identifiable way of finding properly trained Forklift operators via the NORS registration number. Employers will be able to obtain further information about any training undertaken by a current or prospective employee and additionally ensure their operators remain safe operators who regularly receive refresher operator training.
If you’re in need of Forklift training or you’re an employer looking to put staff through refresher training, then Forklift Agency can help. We offer everything from novice to refresher training and we even provide training on some of the less popular forklifts such as telescopic handlers. We also offer the training at a time and place to suit you and we don’t charge travel costs either. So, what are you waiting for?
