Training FAQ's

What is a vehicle mounted forklift?

The vehicle mounted forklift is often referred to as the manufacturers’ name of Moffett. Truck mounted forklifts are usually mounted on the rear of a vehicle or its platform and then can be taken off the vehicle where required. 

The range of vehicle mounted lift trucks can carry up to 2.5 tonnes

What is a vehicle mounted forklift operator certification?

The Occupational Safety Health Administration (OSHA) requires vehicle mounted forklift operators to be certified before operating a lift truck or forklift. Forklift certification is mandatory to help reduce the number of injuries due to unsafe operation of equipment in the workplace.

How long does certification last?

Officially there is no set time limit for vehicle mounted forklift refresher training, however it is recommended training is taken every 3 to 5 years. This ensures that operators are always up to date with the latest technology and they can be reminded of vital safety procedures that keep your workplace safe and compliant.

Forklift Licence Requirements (age driving licence, medical fitness)

Age

Most trainers won’t train anyone under the age of 17, and most employers won’t employ drivers under 18 due to limitations in place due to the weight of forklifts they are operating. 

Medical Fitness

Forklift drivers and operators need to have the appropriate medical fitness level for the work they are expected to undertake. 

It is good practice for all operators to be screened for fitness before employment and at regular intervals. 

Normal levels of fitness required by forklift operators are:

General – Operators should have full movement of the trunk, neck, limbs and normal agility.

Vision – Operating a lift truck depends on good judgement of space and distance and this required effective use of both eyes. Distance vision should be of the same standard for driving a car on public roads.

Hearing – The ability to hear instructions and warning signals is important, although a risk assessment can be taken to determine if deafness does not constitute a hazard. 

An experienced worker who loses a lib can retrain, but a stable disposition is required. An individual who is dependant on alcohol or non-prescribed drugs should not be employed as a lift truck operator.

Driving License

You don’t need to hold a valid UK driving license to operate a forklift truck unless you need to drive the forklift on public roads or highways.

Which forklift license level do I need?

To be able to drive a vehicle mounted forklift, forklift training is mandatory for health & safety.
