Fork Lift Truck Medicals

The HSE “Safety in working with lift trucks” guidance (HSG6) outlines guidance for forklift truck drivers to have forklift truck driver medicals at prescribed intervals. Good practice is to complete a forklift driver medical at the beginning of employment (or at least at the commencement of a driving role), at the age of 40 and regularly thereafter. Anybody over 65 is recommended to complete such a driver’s medical on an annual basis.

Where can Fork Lift Truck Medicals be Carried Out?

As with most of our services, these can be at your workplace or our offices in Wootton Bassett. If it’s only a handful of people or individuals, then our office works well, otherwise it makes sense to arrange at your workplace. The medical will consist of:

  • Audiogram
  • BP check
  • Urinalysis
  • Height/Weight Check
  • Eyesight check
  • General Health questionnaire, medical history check

Safewell has been working alongside us for several years now and I have had the pleasure of working with them for the past few years. They are always professional with their approach and always on hand if we require any ad-hoc advice to support our health and safety needs. I cannot recommend them enough and would definitely suggest to anyone looking for advice or services in regards to anything health and safety related to contact Safewell.
