More info regarding CACES®
A way of validating a safe lift truck operator, is to pass the CACES® (Certificat d’Aptitude à la Conduite en Sécurité) Driving Certificate for lift trucks. The CACES certificates are valid for five years. Drivers will have to update their knowledge and repeat the test according to this periodicity.
The CACES is a CNAM (Caisse Nationale d’Assurance Maladie) recommendation and it is a good way for the employer to ensure that the operator has the know-how and knowledge required for the issuance of a certificate to operate a lift truck.
