A forklift license is necessary in becoming a forklift operator or driver in Brisbane and throughout Queensland. The job of a forklift operator is classified as a high risk one in all of Australia and this means that there is a potential risk of endangering the health, safety and the lives of people in the workplace.
Therefore safety measures in operation of a forklift need to be observed. A forklift licence QLD ensures that the bearer is able to operate a forklift, conduct checks on safety of the equipment and operator, monitor risks in safety in the workplace and deal with the proper shut off of equipment.
In short, a licence is not merely a document, but proof that the forklift operator follows safety guidelines and is efficient in the use of a forklift in the industry that he (or she) is in.
