Forklift/Powered Industrial Truck Safety has been specifically created to involve employees in the process of understanding forklift operation and to help facilities in fulfilling the OSHA Powered Industrial Truck Standard (29 CFR,1910.178) training requirements. Forklifts and other powered industrial trucks are rugged, powerful tools that help workers perform materials handling tasks quickly and efficiently. But the same qualities that make industrial trucks so helpful can also make them dangerous.
Topics covered in this program:
Include OSHA’s training requirements, types of powered industrial trucks, inspection and maintenance, safe operating procedures, lifting and lowering loads, a forklift’s stability and handling and more.
