OSHA REQUIREMENTS Our program facilitates your company's compliance with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations. OSHA requires that initial training and evaluation of an employee must be completed before an employee is assigned to operate a powered industrial lift truck. The revised requirements for operator training are intended foremost to reduce the number of injuries and deaths associated with inadequate training.
OSHA requires a program designed around the operator's current skills and knowledge, the specific trucks to be operated, and any potential hazards that may be present in the workplace. Refresher training is required every three years or sooner if the operator was involved in an accident, or if working conditions change.
