OSHA requests information on powered industrial trucks standard

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is requesting information as it considers rulemaking to update the power industrial trucks standards for the general and construction industries. 

OSHA will use this information to determine what action it may take to reduce regulatory burdens and create jobs while improving worker safety.

The administration is requesting information on the types, age, and usage of powered industrial trucks; maintenance and retrofitting; how to regulate older powered industrial trucks as well as the types of accidents and injuries associated with operating these machines. It is also seeking information on the costs and benefits of retrofitting the machines with safety features; and other components of a safety programme.

Comments and materials must be submitted electronically,  the Federal e-Rulemaking Portal, or by facsimile or mail by 10 June. See the Federal Register notice for submission details.

Powered industrial trucks include forklifts, fork trucks, tractors, platform lift trucks, motorised hand trucks, and other specialized industrial trucks powered by an electrical motor or an internal combustion engine.
