More than 95,000 people are injured in forklift incidents every year, costing businesses millions of dollars. OSHA standards require that all employees who operate powered industrial trucks be trained on the specific machinery they operate. Handling materials and products safely and efficiently is a major factor in the success of numerous industries throughout the world. That is why it is critical that forklift operators are properly trained in the engineering principles and safety operating techniques of the various types of equipment used today. Keep yourself and your workplace safe from one of the leading causes of workplace injuries. OSHA requires that forklift operators be trained in 29 CFR 1910.178 Industrial Truck Operations. This training is required for all operators to develop and reinforce safe operating practices, learn the differences between various lift trucks, reduce injuries to co-workers and operators, and minimize damage to property and cargo.
