Why refresher training is required for forklift tickets and the likes

Forklift training meadowbrook

In the construction, resources and logistics industries the various licencing obtained to operate trucks and machinery are quite different to your regular car licence.

Rather than doing the testing and gaining a licence for several decades to come, the operators will frequently require refresher training in order to be compliant with Work Health and Safety (WHS) regulations.

Having a licence or forklift ticket is no longer the adequate measure of workers’ abilities to perform their tasks and operate machinery unless it is coupled with ongoing refresher training.

And under Australian legislation, it is up to the employer to provide refresher training as part of their duty of care for workers who operate a forklift, order picker forklift and elevated work platforms such as the boom lift, scissor lift and vertical lift.

So as the employer or manager of a worksite, it is your legal responsibility to ensure that the skills of staff working on site are up-to-date.

Annual training is the best way to consistently ensure your staff are still operating equipment safely and productively and that your business is complying with its legal obligations.

To ensure your duty of care requirements are met, Elevated Training can provide refresher training, which is also known as ‘Verification of Competency’, to validate your staffs’ abilities to undertake the responsibilities of their roles.

Elevated Training can come to your worksite and provide forklift and machinery refresher courses to your entire team to avoid shutting down production at your site.

We effectively deliver nationally recognised courses that comply with WHS regulations, while also tailoring them to meet the needs of specific work environments.

Elevated Training also provides a holistic approach to getting your staff qualified with everything from the formal training to log book and driving, to onsite training until competency is achieved.
