This course covers the skills and knowledge required to operate a forklift truck – including planning work, undertaking routine checks, load shifting, and the safe and secure shutdown of equipment after completing operations. A person operating a forklift truck is required to hold a high risk work licence. This course meets the formal training requirements required for a licence, as outlined by Workplace Health and Safety Queensland.
There are no entry requirements for this course. It is recommended that participants:
