Following the formation of the Accrediting Bodies Association (ABA) in 2012, ITSSAR have implemented a mandatory data base (TOPS) for all Mechanical Handling Equipment (MHE) and Workplace Transport Operators. Accredited organisations will be required to access the scheme and provide details of all accredited operator training. A unique ID number will be issued which will remain with them for life. This number will be used for all additional categories of machines, for which there will be no charge if done remotely. If this service is updated by Wokingham, then an admin fee will be charged.
To reduce MHE and workplace transport accidents/incidents, whilst improving safety through training
