When it comes to OSHA training requirements standards, the powered industrial truck safety training requirements provide us with an extremely effective model to follow.

Why? Because it is performance-based and it requires three phases of training.

  • Formal, which covers the truck and work-related information
  • Practical, meaning supervised practice of the tasks expected
  • Evaluation, which ensures that you can do the tasks required unsupervised

With this standard, there are no annual training updates. This is where the performance-based requirement comes in to play. Re-training occurs when you don’t perform as expected, such as getting into an accident or even a near accident.
