What is an Authorisation to Operate?

After the 3 stages of forklift training have been successfully completed (Basic Operator Training, Specific Job Training and Familiarisation Training), an
operator should be issued with an Authorisation to Operate from their employer.  All authorisations should be logged and recorded and include the following information:

  • Operator’s name
  • Date authorisation granted and expiry date
  • Types/categories of equipment operator is authorised to use
  • Any special limitations or conditions associated with the authorisation
  • The areas of the company’s premises in which the operator is authorised to operate
