Loadshifting equipment such as a forklift truck requires the operator to hold a high-risk licence. Without a LF forklift licence, you can only use the forklift under supervision. You may obtain your LF forklift ticket by completing a nationally recognised forklift course.
After successfully completing our forklift training course, you can apply to WorkSafe WA to obtain your high-risk forklift licence or DTE can do this on your behalf. The course is competency based which means, in order to obtain your forklift ticket, you will be assessed against certain criteria that covers the national assessment instrument and WorkSafe WA requirements.
