Forklift Safety

Forklifts: What the Standard Says

Lift trucks are a great tool for moving large loads efficiently, and they can prevent many lifting and handling injuries. However, they can also be a source of serious injury for operators and others working close by. Failure to comply with carbon monoxide monitoring requirements for forklifts is a leading OSHA violation in Minnesota. Violations of operator training requirements are also frequent.
