There is no such thing as a FLT Licence .... You can drive a FLT on a standard Full Car Driving License.
You can drive a Fork Lift Truck without any kind of driving license.

This site https://www.safetyrisk.net/safety-culture-survey-tool/ looks worth a try (others are available and I have no connection to safetyrisk.net)
