Operator Competency Assessments

Over time forklift operators may become complacent, forget rules or learn bad habits. Conducting forklift refresher training can help an employer to overcome these problems and demonstrate that they are meeting their Duty of Care under the OH&S/WHS Act in making sure that workers are trained to perform their work safely.

This course is designed for those who have already obtained a valid photo forklift licence. The course focuses on increasing workplace health and safety awareness and provides guidance about safe forklift operation.

The AJM Training Services understands that refresher training is not only an important aspect of any workplace safety program but is also a legal requirement for employers under the OH&S/WHS regulations requiring site specific and refresher forklift driver training to ensure safe work practices.
