Pallet stacker : is a certificate mandatory ?

by Olivier Boutte, the 3 December 2018

Not everyone can operate a handling truck, a plaform or a mobile crane ! For some of these machines, a certificate of operator safety competency (called CACES in France) is mandatory. Different certificates apply according to the machine category. What does regulation say about pallet stackers ?

For pallet stackers, the certificate is optional but recommended.

Generally speaking, a certificate is only mandatory for rider-seated models. Pedestrian controlled machines, where the operator walks alongside the machine and operates it through a drawbar, do not require a certificate. Many pallet trucks and pallet stackers are pedestrian controlled.

Choosing pedestrian controlled models enables faster adoption and can avoid costly trainings. However, operator’s attention remains a prerequisite for a safe use of the machine.
