Cal/OSHA Industrial Equipment, Lift Trucks and Tractors

Online Training Certification Course

Title 8 CCR, GSO 3650 & 3664

From the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.

Fork lifts, hand trucks, and other types of powered industrial trucks and tractors are common pieces of equipment at a wide range of job sites. They are also common causes of worker injury and material damage, yet most accidents are preventable. Worker awareness of risk and adherence to safety regulations are proven ways to reduce accidents and keep workers safe.

This online certification course meets the requirements for powered industrial truck safety training in the state of California. It covers important OSHA safety training standards, including an overview of the rules and regulations associated with the safe operation of industrial equipment, including lift trucks and tractors; an overview of rollover protective structures and their purpose; and best practices and training standards for the safe use of industrial equipment.

This course is for:
Employees who are required to use industrial equipment, lift trucks, or tractors in their job role must receive training prior to their initial assignment. This equipment is most commonly used in agriculture, construction, and warehouse and distribution centers.

Case Study: In 2005, an employee of ABC Supply Company, Inc. in Los Angeles, California, was operating a high-reach, rough terrain forklift and unloading two delivery trucks, consisting of eight pallets of roofing tiles. The slope of the driveway prohibited the delivery trucks from using the driveway. The ABC Company crew unloaded the two trucks at the bottom of the driveway, and the forklift operator located the pallets at the top of the driveway. As the forklift operator was maneuvering the forklift to unload an empty pallet, witnesses observed the forklift driver losing control of his vehicle. It began traveling down the steep driveway in reverse. The witnesses stated that the wheels were not turning, but the forklift was moving backwards with its mast in a fully elevated position, when it flipped over and landed on its side. The driver was killed in the accident. It could not be determined if the forklift driver was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the accident. An accident investigation revealed that the driver was not operating the forklift in accordance with the company's standard operating procedures, and with the manufacturer's operating instructions.

Key Takeaways: To reduce the risks associated with operating industrial equipment, it is essential to follow the guidelines outlined in General Industry Safety Order 3664 and 3650, which necessitate the use of a seatbelt and prohibit the use of industrial equipment on steep surfaces. The operator should have also been following the company's and manufacturer's operating instructions.
