Forklifts and other powered industrial trucks are rugged tools that save effort, time and money. However, their power and strength can also make them dangerous. The average industrial truck accident causes thousands of dollars' worth of damage to their facility and the forklift itself. These accidents can also result in major injuries to anyone who is involved… and some of them can even be fatal.
To help prevent forklift accidents, OSHA created the "Powered Industrial Truck Standard". This regulation requires that workers must be trained to safely operate and properly maintain a powered industrial truck before they can use it in their workplace.
With the right training, a well-maintained forklift and some common sense, employees can help to prevent forklift accidents… and make their facility a safer place.
