Forklifts (also called industrial lift trucks) are used to lift, stack and transfer loads in many workplaces across NSW. However, every year they continue to cause workplace deaths and injuries resulting in substantial financial and human costs for workers, industry, and the community.

The three main reasons workers are killed or seriously injured in forklift incidents are:

  1. being hit or crushed by a forklift
  2. being hit or crushed by a load that the forklift is moving
  3. being crushed in a forklift tip-over.

Forklift incidents can be prevented, especially when workers and businesses work together to improve health and safety at work. The first prevention is for all forklift operators to hold a valid SafeWork NSW HRW Forklift Licence.

It is a legal requirement to be licenced to operate a forklift in NSW.
