Course Content Summary

Unlike regular pickup trucks, powered industrial trucks are designed to transport heavy loads using a forklifting mechanism. Because of the unique safety hazards posed by the forks on forklifts and telehandlers, OSHA requires specialized training for those who operate these types of machines.

In this Good Day’s Work training course, employees will learn how to safely operate PITs, specifically with regard to the agricultural hazards they may encounter on a farm operation. It also includes most common hazards, such as rollover risks and loadlifting risks, and how to avoid them.
