Unlicenced Forklift Operators and Employer Fined

A prominent warehousing and distribution company has been fined after two of its forklift operators were found without documentary evidence that they were competent to operate the forklifts.

A worksafe inspector visited the company to investigate an incident where a worker was struck by a forklift. The inspector found two forklift operators had been operating forklifts for a significant amount of time without certification.

The company was issued an improvement notice and agreed to comply, however after two weeks, the workers continued to operate forklifts without licences.

The company was fined a total of $8,000, the operators $3000 each.
