In line with DVLA requirements, the HSE suggests you screen all existing and potential workplace transport operators for fitness before employment and at five-yearly intervals from age 45.
Meet Your Legal Requirements
Group 2 licences are renewable five-yearly from age 45 and, where an individual is both a workplace transport operator and holds a Group 2 licence these assessments can be made at the same examination. A workplace transport operator who continues after age 65 should have annual assessments for fitness.
We recommend assessment after an absence of more than one month or after a shorter absence if it is likely that the illness has affected the worker’s fitness to operate workplace transport. This provides positive confirmation of fitness to operate workplace transport in these circumstances.
If a GP signs a worker off as fit to return to work, this may not be the same as fitness to operate workplace transport.
It is also recommend assessment if workplace transport operators, or their employers, suspect that they have developed a condition which may affect their continuing ability to operate workplace transport.
