Workplace safety training is the unsung hero of many businesses. It is necessary for many reasons, but often unwanted by those who need it most. Keeping employees safe is a concern for every business, but for some companies it’s a matter of life and death on a daily basis.  Here at Trainix we believe that far too often, some businesses forget about the importance of safety and training until tragedy strikes. Understanding the dangers of workplace MHE and learning the correct safety procedures are a must.

Frequently Asked Questions About Trainix Forklift Training Centre

Trainix is located at Factory 3/25-27 Graham Court, Hoppers Crossing. Hoppers Crossing is about 25km west of Melbourne. Trainix is in a convenient location, not far from the Hoppers Crossing freeway exit.

Trainix is situated 2.5km from Williams Landing train station and 3.7km from Hoppers Crossing train station. Both stations have buses that can get you to Graham Court via Bus Route 153. Trainix is a short walk (under 10 minutes) from the Graham Court/Old Geelong Road bus stop.

We opened our doors on June 1st, 2015. Our trainers have all had extensive experience both as operators and trainer/assessors.

Yes, we are registered and approved with ASQA (RTO number 45470) and Authorised by WorkSafe Victoria to conduct assessments. Our assessors are also authorised WorkSafe assessors and are Certificate IV qualified trainers.

While it can be confusing, what you are hoping to gain at the completion of either our LF licence or LO courses is a High Risk Work licence. There are 29 classes (or categories) of High Risk Work and your licence will be updated with those classes as you gain competency in them. For example, once you’ve completed either our forklift or order picker courses successfully and have applied for the licence, your High Risk Work licence will show the class ‘LF’ or ‘LO’ which means you are competent in those classes of High Risk Work and are licensed to operate the equipment covered in those classes. You could also apply for other classes of High Risk Work such as ‘WP’ which is a Boom Type Elevated Work Platform or ‘DG’ which is Dogging by completing approved courses at other RTO’s. These classes would then be added to your High Risk Work licence once you have successfully completed those courses and passed the assessments. There is more information about High Risk Work licensing here: https://www.worksafe.vic.gov.au/high-risk-work-licence

There are no additional charges to have a verbal assessment conducted. You will just need to discuss a suitable time with your trainer/assessor for the assessment as it can’t be conducted with the rest of the class. We can work this out with you during the course, if needed. Please let us know in advance if you are concerned with writing so we can plan for it and assist you as best we can.

We have microwaves, fridges and a sandwich press. There is a vending machine available on-site and we offer free tea and coffee. There are many good cafes in the area too if you’d prefer to buy lunch.

While we can offer onsite forklift licence training, there are a list of requirements to adhere to so we can comply with the WorkSafe’s assessment conditions. Should you wish to organise training for your workplace or would like more information, please visit https://trainix.com.au/services/onsite-forklift-training/

As per WorkSafe regulations, the assessment must be conducted in English, without the use of a translator. If you’re able to read and understand English but have some difficulty with writing, then we have an option of conducting a ‘verbal’ assessment where you would just tell the trainer/assessor your answers, rather than write them. This can be beneficial for some people, and it comes at no extra charge. While you don’t need to write your answers, you will need to be able to learn the information enough to explain your answers. This assessment may have to take place at a different time, depending on trainer availability as it needs to be conducted separate from the group. It is also important to note that you will still need to be able to communicate, read and understand English to Certificate Level 2 to be able to enrol. We will conduct a small LLN (language, literacy, numeracy) test during enrolment to ensure you’re eligible.

The LO licence covers the operation of an ‘order picking forklift truck’ which is more commonly known as a ‘stock picker’ or ‘order picker’. The operator stands on a platform that can raise up in high level racking/shelving to pick stock and fulfill orders. It’s pretty much ‘pick & pack’ but going up high to pick the stock. Due to the platform raising, the operator needs to wear a safety harness attached to a lanyard to ensure their safety at heights. The LO licence also covers a ‘turret truck’ which is used in very narrow aisles to move pallets in and out where a forklift cannot fit. The platform on a turret also raises up which is why it’s covered by the LO licence.

An LF licence covers nearly any type of forklift, even a high reach. The LF class is based on the design of the forklift being that the operator sits or stands at ground level and a vertical mast raises up with fork-arms or other attachments. If the operator doesn’t go up and it has a vertical mast, it’s covered by LF. There is no limit on size or capacity either. If it’s considered a ‘forklift’ by design, it’s covered by the LF licence.

Please get in touch if you’re still unsure which licence you need so we can help you book the correct course.
