About the TSHA

Working alongside the Elevating Work Platform Association (EWPA), the TSHA’s purpose is to ensure safety as well as support and promote the Telescopic Handler industry.

The TSHA is dedicated to ensuring members are kept up to date with safety information relating to the operation and regulations regarding the use to telescopic handlers. This is done through a range of services made available including the TSHA Operator Licence Training Program (the TSHA Gold Card), industry advice lines, online safety resources and guidance notes and specialised stationery to order.

Our members include hire and rental companies, manufacturers, suppliers, end-users, trainers and specialised support and service companies that cover the full spectrum of this industry.

One of the main aims of the Association is to continually improve safety and develop product training and instruction for end users. Information sheets and guidance notes covering many issues are available.
