Powered Industrial Truck Training Resources (1910.178)

OSHA puts out a list of the top 10 most cited violations every year.

Here’s the list from 2015.

Many standards appear on the list each time. Maybe there’s a little re-ordering, but some standards get violated a LOT every year.

So we’re pulling together some things to help you train your workers about each of the top ten. Here, we’ve got a list of resources about powered industrial trucks for you.

These include links to our own e-learning courses, a fun word game, an interactive glossary, free downloadable daily checklists, helpful FAQs, and more. Hope you find this helpful.

What’s the regulation, again?

Does OSHA have a Safety & Health Topic webpage for powered industrial truck hazards and regulations?

Yep, here it is.

Does OSHA have any eTools for the powered industrial truck regulations?

Here’s OSHA’s Powered Industrial Truck (Forklift) eTool.

Can I get any free daily checklists for the operators of powered industrial trucks?

Yes, we’ve made two for you (and have made each in four different formats–PDF, Word, Excel, and Convergence Training Tasklist).

One checklist is for internal combustion PITs, and the other is for electric powered PITs.

What about NIOSH? Do they offer resources too?

Here’s a NIOSH publication called Preventing Injuries and Deaths of Workers Who Operator or Work Near Forklifts (catchy title, huh?).
