Eye-test
Hi
Where exactly in the Regs, framed under the OHS Act, does it say that forklift drivers should undergo an eye-test?

Look under the regs pertaining to lifting equipment. There is debate that it specifies an optometrist, yet I believe that a sound test with a 'vision screener' by a trained operator should suffice.
