Mezzanine deck installation

Mezzanine decks or mezzanine floors are installed in trucks and trailers to increase the load capacity when carrying freight that can't be stacked. Installing and removing a mezz deck requires careful operation with a forklift, the right sequence of tasks, and knowledge of load security to complete the job.

Mistakes can cause injuries and even death, so this course focuses on how to minimise those risks and get that mezz deck in or out quickly but safely.

The online course is the most convenient way of learning the theory.

  • The trainee can take a smartphone or tablet out into the yard and work through the advice immediately after watching the video
  • Training can be done at any time that is convenient for the trainee
  • Language and literacy support with translations to 36 languages plus audio recordings in English for the questions - your operators with English as a second language or poor reading skills don't need to be left behind
  • Easy management and reporting
  • Automatic reminders to refresh the training after three years

Experienced trainers and the yard team from TR Driver Training and TR Group, demonstrate everything your team members need to get the right equipment, set up the truck or trailer and install or remove the mezz deck. 

The course is divided into easy-to-follow modules that take just a few minutes each. Trainees have access to the course materials for six months so they can go back and repeat modules as required.

A certificate of achievement is created on successful completion of the course.

Who is this course for?

  • Truck drivers who install mezz decks
  • Yard team members
  • Supervisors wanting to understand how to safely supervise their team and write SOPs


Do I need to do this training? WorkSafe and the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 require you to give training, supervision, information and ongoing monitoring for team members that perform tasks with a risk of injury or death. A mezz deck is heavy and cumbersome, so training in how to install and remove them is required.

How long is the certificate valid for? This sort of training is usually refreshed every 3 years.

Does this course include a practical assessment with a trainer? No, none is required. However, the PCBU is responsible for ensuring that the team member installing or removing the deck has been inducted and understands how to use the forklift.

Are there any relevant NZQA unit standards? There are no unit standards for this task.


  • You will need one course licence per person taking the course - you can't use one licence for multiple trainees
  • You will need a computer, smartphone or tablet with internet access to take the theory training.

Set up is free whether you are purchasing one course licence or a hundred course licences.
