1. Scope
This Guideline covers the requirements associated with the purchasing and hire, work areas,
operation, refuelling, inspection and maintenance of forklifts. It also includes requirements
related to the types of forklifts to be used in specific circumstances (eg. indoors, in hazardous
areas, etc).

2. Objectives
To ensure that all forklifts are of the correct type for the work to be done, that they are all
maintained in good working order and that all legislative requirements are met.

3. Definitions
Forklift truck (as defined in the Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011)

carriage to which is attached a pair of fork arms or other arms that can be raised 900mm or
more above the ground, but does not include a pedestrian-operated truck or a pallet truck.

Order-picking forklift truck (as defined in the Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011)
A forklift truck where the operators controls are incorporated with the lifting media and elevate
with the lifting media.

4. Issues to be Addressed
Please Note
This section of the ES&H Guideline needs to be expanded and further developed by users into
a full operational procedure. This is done by incorporating details to reflect your companys
