Fork lift truck driver medicals

Our fork lift truck medicals can be provided on clients’ own sites, or at our premises in Stoke on Trent and Northwich.  They consist of a 20 minute appointment with an occupational health nurse.

In line with DVLA requirements, the HSE suggests you screen all existing and potential workplace transport operators for fitness before employment and at five-yearly intervals from age 45.  A workplace transport operator who continues after age 65 should have annual assessments for fitness.

An assessment after an absence of more than one month or after a shorter absence if it is likely that the illness has affected the worker’s fitness to operate workplace transport is also recommended.
