The HSE highlights the importance of conducting driver medicals for all operators and potential operators before they commence employment, as well as at regular intervals throughout their employment.
The DVLA recommends that driver medicals should be carried out:
In addition, all forklift drivers are required to have good eyesight, adequate hearing and a reasonable amount of head and neck mobility. They are expected to have a forklift driver medical at regularly prescribed intervals – it is good practice for all drivers to complete this medical at the beginning of their employment, at the age of 40 and regularly thereafter. It’s recommended that drivers over the age of 65 have annual driver medicals.
