Fitness to Drive Assessments

Many workers drive vehicles off public roads as part of their job, like forklift truck operators, dock workers, crane drivers and so on. Application of medical standards provides a framework to ensure that the requirements of the particular driving task match with the fitness and abilities of the driver. Fitness to Drive assessments are also recommended after an absence of more than one month or after a shorter absence if it is likely that an illness may have affected fitness to operate vehicles or plant.
