OSHA is requesting information as the agency considers rulemaking to update the powered industrial trucks standards. OSHA will use the information received to determine what action, if any, it may take to reduce regulatory burdens and create jobs while improving worker safety. Powered industrial trucks include forklifts, fork trucks, tractors, platform lift trucks, motorized hand trucks, and specialized industrial trucks powered by an electrical motor or internal combustion engines. Comments must be submitted by June 9.
