Forklift Driver Guide Cover

Forklifts are a major safety concern in Australian workplaces given they are such heavy, powerful and movable pieces of machinery. Forklifts pose risks to both drivers and people walking in areas where they are being used.

As an employer, you are ultimately responsible for ensuring all of the risks associated with forklifts are controlled if they cannot be eliminated. As is the case for all machines in your workplace, it is vital your employees are trained and licensed to use a forklift properly.

Employsure have developed a Forklift Pre-Start Guide to be used at the start of each shift or working day, whichever is most appropriate to your workplace.
