All employers are required to have currently competent forklift operators – it’s the law.
The law requires that all employers provide adequate instruction, training & information & assessment to their forklift operators to ensure they are currently competent. This is especially so since 2012 when new WHS laws placed greater importance on employers’ due diligence & obligation for employee current competency.
Who should do forklift VoC/DoC?
Any person with a current forklift licence who
- is required by their employer’s safety system, to verify their current competency, usually every 1 to 3 years.
- would like to have current verification of competency proof, e.g. when applying for a job.
VoC/DoC is often used by employers & principal contractors as part of pre-employment checks. VS&R Training provides high quality training & assessment in verifying that you still have the knowledge & skill to be a safe, competent forklift operator in the workplace.
