Home - What are the requirements for tractor-mounted forklifts?
July 06, 2015 on chapter Vehicle safety

The following questions relate to tractor-mounted forklifts used on our vineyards (they are never used on public roads):

1. Do operators need a forklift license?

2. What standard (if any) do they fall under?

Workers who operate forklifts are considered to be undertaking high-risk work that requires a work licence. This includes tractor-mounted forklifts, whether or not they are used on public roads.

You should ensure that you request proof that the worker holds the appropriate licence before engaging them. This licence is issued by the health and safety regulator and replaces former certificates of competency. Please note that a licence is granted for a limited period and must be renewed within that period if the worker wishes to remain licensed.
