What is the law?

To safely and legally operate a forklift in a Queensland workplace you must:

  • Be licensed and competent to operate that particular forklift
  • Follow safe operating procedures including following the traffic management rules at your workplace.

What type of licence do I need to operate a forklift?

You need a High Risk Work licence (LF), to operate a forklift in Queensland.


What training do I need to get the licence?

There are two ways to get your licence. You can either be:

  • Trained on-­the-­job under the direct supervision of a licensed forklift operator and be assessed by a Registered Training Organisation(RTO) after being deemed competent by your employer; OR
  • Trained and assessed by the RTO either at your workplace or at the RTO’s training site.
