Forklift Licencing

In a workplace environment, most employee injuries and property damage can be attributed to a lack of, or inadequate, training. A comprehensive forklift safety training program is one of the most effective ways to combat workplace injuries.

There are specific rules set forth by Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Management System concerning forklift operator training and licensing.

Businesses are required to develop and enforce a written program that includes, but is not limited to:

  • Forklift Operator training
  • Licencing
  • Review/renewal program

This is an OHS requirement for every forklift operator within an organization. Every aspect of the forklift operation must be covered, from setting the parking brake to forklift speed.

Our team went through a refresher training to renew their licence.
