This course is designed to prevent accidents, injury and death associated with the use of rough terrain vehicles in the Construction Industry. According to OSHA, about 46,450 powered industrial trucks are used for construction work. Approximately 2,380 construction workers are seriously injured and about 15 are killed each year in the U.S. during accidents involving these rough terrain vehicles. Such accidents are caused by unsafe work practices, lack of proper training, and improper or inadequate maintenance of equipment. This program is designed to prevent accidents.

The training goals of this program include:

  • To explain the importance of safe operation of rough terrain vehicles on the construction site.
  • Display knowledge of pre-operation and post-operational inspection of the equipment.
  • Understand tip-over hazards of rough terrain vehicles.
  • To address maintenance issues associated with the performance of rough terrain vehicles.
  • To clarify OSHA regulations, industry standards and best practices regarding the safe operation of rough terrain vehicles.
  • To review OSHA requirements for proper employee observation and evaluation under the Powered Industrial Truck Construction Standard.
