Commonly-Used Powered Industrial Truck classes

If your employees will be expected to operate several different types of powered industrial trucks, then training for O.S.H.A. Compliance is required for each class of truck the operator will operate. The Industrial Truck Association has placed powered industrial trucks into 7 classes:
  • Class I- Electric motor rider trucks
  • Class II- Electric motor narrow aisle trucks
  • Class III- Electric motor hand trucks or hand/rider trucks
  • Class IV- Internal combustion engine trucks (solid/cushion tires)
  • Class V- Internal combustion engine trucks (pneumatic tires)
  • Class VI- Electric and internal combustion engine tractors
  • Class VII- Rough terrain forklift trucks
Note that this classification refers to commonly-used vehicles and does not include all powered industrial trucks covered by the O.S.H.A standard.

Make Safety Your Priority

We have a dedicated staff of professionals who have studied the O.S.H.A. Rules and Regulations and understand exactly what tools and information are necessary to achieve O.S.H.A. Compliance. Whether you want us to instruct your company trainers, safety department staff or the operators themselves, our formal training program combined with your on-site evaluation will provide you with the equipment needed to help you achieve compliance. What about temporary workers? Basically, there is a shared responsibility for assuring employees are adequately trained between the temporary agency and the host employer. However, the host employer must provide site-specific information and training on the particular types of trucks. Employers know and understand the bottom line in their company finances. The bottom line in Operator Training is "the employer bears responsibility for training operators of P.I.T.". Non compliance can affect "your" bottom line.
