Do I need a Forklift licence to operate a telehandler with a fork attachment?


No. Fitting fork attachments to a Telehandler does not make it a forklift. It is just a Telehandler with fork attachments. The business (or employer or other PCBU) still has a duty of care to ensure workers have appropriate training in operating the Telehandler; however a high risk work licence is not required.
