What is a Powered Industrial Forklift?

A powered industrial truck is defined as any mobile power-propelled truck used to carry, push, pull, lift, stack or tier materials. Powered industrial trucks can be ridden or controlled by a walking operator. As OSHA (Occupational Health and Safety Administration) continues to prioritize forklift operator training and compliance, fewer companies are willing to take any chance of having uncertified operators in their workplace. Our beginner training program is designed for the inexperienced operator to give them the theoretical, classroom style instruction and practical, hands-on training they need to meet the basic operational and safety requirements to be certified under OSHA's standards.

 

OSHA FORKLIFT STANDARD EFFECTIVE MARCH 1 1999

OSHA's new powered Industrial Truck Operator Training Standard (1910.178) imposes strict and detailed training requirements for forklift operators. The new standards require that anyone who operates a forklift, receive classroom and hands-on training, in addition to a performance evaluation every three years. Employees hired after December 1 1999, must have forklift training certification completed before they can operate any powered industrial truck.
