Forklift Licence Training Courses the new laws require you to have a licenced forklift operator on-site in the workplace, 3 bays of double pallet racking at 3 levels high, 400 sq meters of available training space as well as a fully compliant forklift.
If an assessor conducts tests on any none compliant premises or equipment they could be fined and could be banned from assessing for life by WHSQ.
In addition, all assessors must lodge details of every assessment they are conducting at least 3 days in advance with WHSQ and so WHSQ now knows where every assessor is working and testing. Spot audits are conducted on the quality and compliance of assessors and the site and equipment being used on a regular frequency.
