Vehicle Usage/Fork Lift Trucks
It is extremely important that employees are monitored as to their ability to drive a vehicle onsite. Within industry, we find many individuals wearing glasses that no longer provide adequate benefit and often are often are driving illegally.
Alternately, they may be wearing glasses which do not now provide the necessary amplification to give 20.20 vision, due to not having an annual eyesight check. Our vision screening services, allows us to check the degree of eyesight the client has, problems with colour blindness, and their ability to judge distance, again a vital component of handling a forklift truck.
