Many sectors employ powered industrial trucks, often known as forklifts or lift trucks, largely to transport products. Additionally, they can be used to lift, lower, or remove heavy items as well as a number of smaller ones that are stored on pallets, in boxes, crates, or other containers. The operator of a powered industrial vehicle can either ride it or control it while walking.
The standard 29 CFR 1910.178 requires that employers must plan and implement a training program that takes into account the general rules of safe truck operation, the kinds of vehicles being used at work, the hazards that are brought about by using the vehicles, and the OSHA standard’s general safety standards.v
The goal of this course is to prepare trained operators who know how to do the job accurately to prevent workplace hazard.
