PIM Workshop – Powered Industrial Truck Train the Trainer – May 7th

May 7, 2024 from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM (CST) at PIM’s Office, Bloomington, MN

If your facility uses any kind of “mobile, power-driven vehicles used to carry, push, pull, lift, stack or tier material,” then you must train and evaluate the operators of that equipment.  This definition encompasses high lift and low lift trucks, pallet trucks, platform trucks, narrow aisle rider trucks, straddle trucks, picker rider trucks, and forklift trucks. All motorized hand and rider trucks are covered under this rule regardless of their size, shape, and power source, whether they can be ridden or not.  If you use this kind of equipment at your facility, you will have to comply with OSHA’s training requirement.

OSHA requires both classroom and practical instruction in the proper operation of the vehicle, possible hazards, and other concerns specific to your facility. If you are responsible for training your company’s Powered Industrial Trucks (PIT) operators, this workshop is designed for you. 

Upon completion of this workshop you will be able to:

  • Identify the training requirements and performance criteria for PIT operators.
  • Recognize conditions that place your PIT operators at risk;
  • Identify when periodic operator re-evaluation and assessment is needed;
  • Train your company’s employees to meet OSHA’s PIT training and evaluation requirements.
