The national Forklift Licence Test (instrument), available from Australian Forklift Training states that all forklift operators must remain at all times at least 2 meters from domestic power lines and at least 6m from high voltage transmission lines.
However, NSW WorkCover regulations have now been altered to state that all forklift operators must remain at all time at least:
- 3m from voltages up to 132,000V
- 6m from voltages above 132,000V and up to 330,000V
- 8m from voltages above 333,000V
