Forklift

Holding of a Class 1 licence with an F endorsement covers forklifts with a gross laden weight of up to 18,000 kgs, and a Class 2 Licence with an F endorsement covers forklifts with a gross laden weight exceeding 18,000 kgs.

An OSH certificate allows you to drive a forklift in your workplace but not in any area that the public have access to, eg drive through areas. A forklift endorsement allows you to drive a forklift on a road or anywhere that the public have access to.
