OSHA Resources

Here on our blog, we often write about safety issues. Our primary source of information about forklift safety is the Occupational Health & Safety Administration (OSHA) website. This voluminous site is filled with valuable information about OSHA regulations and general safety issues. Their Powered Industrial Trucks eTool is a particularly valuable resource that goes into all facets of forklift operation, including:

  • Pre-operation and operational inspections
  • Traveling and maneuvering
  • Load handling

Each of these main categories is divided into sub-categories. The well-organized eTool makes it easy to find out about any aspect of forklift inspection or operation you are interested in. Illustrations help clarify the information and allow operators to visualize the consequences of unsafe work practices.

Another invaluable OSHA online resource is their Attachments section, which covers a variety of common forklift attachments and the safety issues surrounding them. It’s worth noting that OSHA frowns on free rigging and recommends using attachments. If you want to use free rigging, OSHA requires manufacturers’ consent.

While OSHA’s eTool is an invaluable learning tool, most educators agree that the best way to learn is by using a variety of learning tools. That’s why we offer a wide range of Forklift Training Materials. You can choose materials on specific aspects of forklift operation or the Ultimate Training Package that covers all aspects of lift truck operation and safety. We also offer training models and a clever wire lift truck that allows instructors to visually demonstrate forklift stability issues. When a student sees an unsafe load topple the wire lift truck, the message becomes clear: forklift stability is important.
