Forklifts, aerial, scissor and boom lifts.
What are the risks associated with the operation of powered industrial trucks, lift platforms, scissor lift platforms, and aerial platforms? There are many types of motorized industrial trucks. Each type presents different operating risks. For example, a seated and counterbalanced counterbalanced forklift is more likely to be involved in a fall load accident than a motorized van because the seated forklift can lift a much higher load than a hand truck. The type and conditions of the workplace also take into account the risks commonly associated with industrial powered trucks. It is a violation of federal law for anyone under the age of 18 to operate a forklift or who is over the age of 18 who is not properly trained and certified to do so.
