Your employees are valuable. Tens of thousands of lift truck accidents occur each year, resulting in nearly 100,000 workers compensation disability claims for accidents involving industrial forklifts. Operator error plays a large role in the majority of lift truck accidents. An effective lift truck safety training program can significantly reduce the number of accidents.

The Federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). OSHA state in the Department of Labor Code of Federal Regulations, Section 1910 (1) that: "The employer shall ensure that each power industrial truck operator is competent to operate a powered industrial truck safely, as demonstrated by the successful completion of training and evaluation." Operators must be re-evaluated every 3 years.
