In Western Australia, the National Licensing Standard requires forklift operators to hold a National Licence issued by WorkSafe.

How do you drive a forklift?

To drive a forklift, you must first complete a training program and obtain a forklift high risk licence issued by Worksafe. You can then begin operating a forklift by following these steps:

1.    Set up pedestrian and vehicle exclusion zones and any other control measures.

2.    Perform a pre-operational inspection of the forklift to ensure it is in a safe working condition.

3.    Adjust the seat, mirrors, and controls to your comfort level and then start the forklift.

4.    Perform operational checks such as steering, brakes, gears, lights, safety devices, and full movement checks of the forks.

5.    Select the appropriate gear (forward or reverse) and use the pedals to accelerate and brake as required. Drive the forklift forward and backward and use the steering wheel to turn.

6.    Use the lift control lever to raise and lower the forks.

7.    Use the tilt control lever to tilt the load forward or backward.

8.    Use the side shift lever to adjust the fork position slightly to the left or right if required.

9.    Keep a lookout for other workers and obstacles while driving.

10. Follow all safety regulations, including maintaining a safe speed and load capacity.

11. When finished, turn off the forklift and perform a post-operational inspection.

It's important to note that driving a forklift requires knowledge of the specific model you are operating and compliance with WHS regulations and industry standards.

How long does a forklift license last?

Generally, a forklift license in Australia is valid for 5 years, after which it must be renewed. Some states may require refresher training or re-assessment before a license can be renewed. However, it's important to check with the specific state or territory regulations as the rules and regulations may vary.
It's worth noting that even if a forklift operator's license is still valid, employers still have the responsibility to evaluate the operator's skill and knowledge and ensure that they are operating the equipment safely.

How to renew forklift license?

To renew a forklift license, you will need to follow the specific guidelines set by the state or territory where you obtained your original license. However, generally, the process for renewing a forklift license typically involves the following steps:

1.    Check the expiration date of your current license and ensure that you renew it before it expires.

2.    Contact the relevant state or territory regulator to find out what is required for the renewal process.

3.    Depending on the state or territory you may need to complete a refresher training course or re-assessment to renew your license.

4.    Complete any necessary training or re-assessment, and submit your renewal application to the relevant state or territory regulator along with any required documentation or fees.

5.    Wait for your application to be processed, and if successful, you will receive a renewed license valid for another 5 years.

It's important to check with the specific state or territory regulations as the rules and regulations may vary and the process of renewing a forklift license can be different across each state.

How much do forklift drivers get paid?

The salary for forklift drivers can vary depending on a number of factors, such as experience, location, and type of employer. According to PayScale, the average hourly wage for forklift drivers in Australia is around $24. However, this can range from around $20 to $30 per hour, with some experienced operators earning even more.
It's worth noting that forklift operators who work in the mining or construction industry may earn a higher salary than those who work in manufacturing or warehousing. The location of the job also plays a role, for example forklift drivers working in major cities like Perth or Melbourne may earn a higher salary than those working in regional areas.
It's also important to consider that forklift drivers are often employed under different types of contract, such as casual, part-time, or full-time. Thus, the salary may also depend on the type of contract, and benefits such as health insurance, retirement plans, paid time off, etc.

Can you drive forklift under supervision?

Yes, it is possible to drive a forklift under supervision, if you are enrolled in a forklift course and being supervised by a registered high-risk trainer/assessor.
Workplaces are also responsible for ensuring that their employees are trained, familiar and competent to operate the specific forklift onsite.
