It’s best practice that anyone operating forklift trucks should undergo a Fork Lift Truck medical (FLT).
Employees who operate forklift trucks and other similar vehicles require a certain degree of mobility to identify all the hazards they face within their working environment.
You may think that because your employee has a driving license they’re automatically fit to drive a forklift truck. However, this isn’t the case.
We recommend that every Fork Lift Truck medical is carried out at the beginning of employment, at the age of 40 and then every year to adhere to best practice guidelines.
