How old must I be to operate a lift truck ?

As stated in the  Approved Code of Practice 2005, “Employers should
select potential lift-truck operators carefully. Those selected for training
need to have the ability to do the job in a responsible manner and the
potential to become competent operators”. With regards to specific age
restrictions for the operation of lift trucks, the ACOP outlines that -
“Operators of lift trucks on docks premises must be aged at least 18 years”

On alternative premises it is stated that -
“Young persons (under 18 years of age) are often exposed to risks to their
health and safety when using work equipment as a consequence of their
immaturity, lack of experience or absence of awareness of existing or
potential risks. Therefore, such young people should not be allowed to
operate lift trucks without adequate supervision unless they have the
necessary competence and maturity, as well as having successfully
completed appropriate training. Children under minimum school leaving
age should never operate lift trucks"
