Fork Lift Trucks

Approximately 35,000 serious injuries and 62,000 non-serious injuries involving forklifts occur in the United States annually. It is estimated that 11% of all forklifts are involved in accidents every year.

The video, Color of Danger, shows these dangers and the precautions that must be taken.  This video is in the public domain and may be downloaded from this web site.

Forklifts are regulated under OSHA’s Powered Industrial Truck Standard (29 CFR 1910.178).

As an additional resource, OSHA offers a Powered Industrial Trucks (Forklift) eTool to help employers meet the compliance requirements of the standard.
