Heads Up: The FLT Operator Test Has Changed
As of September 1st 2017, for the first time since 2000, the Basic Operating Skills Test for Counterbalance (often referred to as forklift) and Reach is being updated. At Ribble Valley we want to keep you in the loop to help you prepare properly for the new Accrediting Bodies Association (ABA) test. With that in mind, we’ve put together the key changes you will see in the new forklift test.
The ABA have collaborated with leading training organisations, insurers, unions, lift truck manufacturers and employers to create a modern test that is relevant to today’s working environment. The new test will be used by Ribble Valley throughout the UK.
Below are the key changes from September 1st 2017:
- Out of the 22 items to check as part of the pre-use inspection test, 13 must be fully and thoroughly inspected. Any candidate not demonstrating a strong understanding of how to check these 13 items will automatically fail this part of the Basic Operating Skills Test
- If a candidate commits any 5-point penalty more than 3 times they will fail the practical skills test
- Penalty awards have been increased in many elements of the practical skills test
- There are now 5 multiple choice questions that must appear in every counterbalance and reach test associated knowledge (theory) question paper. The candidate must answer these 5 questions correctly. If they do not they will fail this part of the new test.
PRIOR TO ANY TRAINING WE SUGGEST THAT THE STUDENTS LOOK AT THE TRAINING AIDS SECTION, UNDER FORK LIFT TRUCK THERE THEY WILL SEE VIDEOS AND NOTES ABOUT THE FLT TRAINING,AND TEST.

Industrial Accidents are now at a
LARGEST EVER LOCAL AUTHORITY SAFETY FINE FOR SAINSBURY'S
Are you and your staff operating industrial machines? Could you be the next to face the courts and jail?
TRAINING IS YOUR LEGAL DUTY
The Health and Saftey (Offences) Act, which increases the penalties for health and saftey crimes, comes into force this month. This act amends section 33 of the Health and Saftey at Work, etc Act 1974, raising the maximum fine that may be imposed by the lower courts from £5000 to £20,000 for most health and saftey offenses. It also makes imprisionment an option for more offenses in both lower and higher courts. By exceeding the £20,000 maximum fine to the lower courts and making imprisionment an option, more cases will be resolved in the lower courts, and justice will be faster, less costly and more efficient.
