Training for the petrochemical industry

If you are working in the petrochemical or heavy industry, DELTA Safety Training is the right place for you. DELTA Safety Training offers a large number of safety and industrial training courses that are relevant to this sector.

DELTA Safety Training provides these training courses with a DELTA certification or, at an additional charge, with an SSVV Training Guide (SOG) examination. SSVV (Stichting Samenwerken Voor Veiligheid) has set up a quality mark for training courses and exams for the (petro)chemical industry. If you do not work in this sector, a DELTA certificate will suffice. The content of the course and the exam is in fact the same.

If you do not explicitly request an SOG exam, your course will be completed with a DELTA exam and you will receive a DELTA certificate if you pass. In most cases, this will be sufficient for you to have and retain access to the work in question. Check whether your employer or client explicitly requests an SOG certification or contact us to find out whether an SOG diploma is applicable to you.

  • What is the difference between a forklift truck and a reach truck?

    There are a number of differences between a forklift truck and a reach truck. In a forklift truck, you sit straight behind the forks; in a reach truck, you sit in a quarter turn. A reach truck has one rear wheel, while a forklift truck can also have two rear wheels. Reach trucks may only drive indoors, whereas a forklift truck with pneumatic tyres may also drive outdoors. Finally, a forklift truck has a counterweight, while a reach truck, due to a different design, does not.
  • How long is the certificate valid after the training?

    The forklift certificate is valid for 5 years (both the SOG and the DELTA forklift certificate). The expiry date is also stated on the certificate that you will receive from us once you have passed.

  • Is a forklift certificate mandatory?

    Strictly speaking, a forklift certificate is not compulsory. That is, nowhere in the law it is literally stated that you have to have a forklift certificate to drive a forklift. However, the Dutch Working Conditions Act states (roughly translated) that the driver has to be able to demonstrate his expertise to operate or drive such a vehicle. Since it is most practical to demonstrate that expertise by means of a valid forklift certificate, most employers choose to have their employees follow a forklift course periodically.
