Powered Industrial Truck Checklists for Safety and Operations

xPIT Checklists Image

Here are some powered industrial truck checklists you can download for free–nice! (We’ve got more free downloadable checklists on other topics here.)

We’ve got two series of checklists for you. And each series includes two actual checklists.

There’s one series for PITs with internal combustion engines (gas, LPG, and diesel), and there’s another series for electric-powered PITs.

So all told, you’ll get a single ZIP folder with four checklists–two for electric PITs, and two for internal combustion PITs. Just scroll your way to the bottom of this article and look for the black download button.

The powered industrial truck checklists are based on a series of checklists available on OSHA’s website.

We took the information in their checklists and made some minor changes to make them more user-friendly. So a hat-tip and proper acknowledgment to our friends at OSHA.

And here’s what the checklists are:

Internal Combustion Powered Industrial Truck Checklists:

  • Daily checklist–record of fuel added
  • Safety and operational checklists–engine “off” checks and engine “on” checks (performed before each shift)

Electric Powered Industrial Truck Checklists:

  • Daily checklist–record of fluid added
  • Safety and operational checklists–engine “off” checks and engine “on” checks (performed before each shift)

Each of the checklists comes in the handy .PDF format.


Download all four of the checklists by clicking the button below. Once you click the button, you’ll fill out a form. Next, we’ll send you an email. You click the link in the email, and you’ll get a zipped folder. That zipped folder includes all four checklists, each in PDF format. Use whichever ones work for you.

Be safe our there, friends!
