Forklift / Powered Industrial Truck (PIT) Safety

HomeServicesEnvironmental Health & SafetyForklift / Powered Industrial Truck (PIT) Safety

For all companies and industries with operators


Employers are required by OSHA regulations to ensure that operators of forklift and powered industrial vehicles complete approved forklift safety training every three years. Since many types of industrial vehicles pose different hazards, OSHA requires proper lift truck or forklift safety training. Forklift safety precautions also cover eliminating exposure to dangerous levels of carbon monoxide.

IEA provides forklift operation safety training for operators in a wide range of work settings. We hold training sessions in schools, government agencies, hospitals, and warehouses across Minnesota, the midwest, and the U.S.
