OSHA Inspection Process Video

This video, produced by OSHA provides information on what might trigger and OSHA inspection and what to expect from beginning to end, of an inspection should you be visited by an inspector.

Forklift are always one of OSHA’s top ten violated categories each year. A lot of the violations stem from lack of operator training, equipment condition, needing repairs or inadequate notification of pedestrians that forklifts are in use.

Download Our FREE Operator Questionnaire

Before you hire and train a forklift operator, it’s very important to understand his or her level of experience, what equipment they have operated and for what period of time. Has he or she had any accidents, what was the nature, did refresher training occur?

This form helps walk you through the process of deciding whether you are hiring a safe operator and how much ( if any) training is needed. Download the questionnaire…

Pre-shift inspections of each forklift are an OSHA requirement, not a suggestion. Our free forklift inspection forms help guide your operators through the process of thorough inspections.

Information on Massachusetts Hoisting Operator's License Requirements

There are two requirements for operating powered industrial trucks in Massachusetts;

  1. compliance with OSHA regulation 1910.178
  2. 520 CMR 6 (Code of Massachusetts Regulations), the MA hoisting Law.

The OSHA compliance training Brodie Toyota lift provides has been required since 1999 and continues to be a requirement. The forklift operator training that we supply will keep you in compliance with OSHA. We train operators in safe powered industrial truck operation. 

The Department of Public Safety requirement has been on the books for a number of years but it was not actively enforced. It is now. To comply with the Massachusetts hoisting requirements your company has two choices.

  1. Have all your operators attain their 1C Hoisting Engineers License
  2. Apply for an exemption.

An exemption can be obtained if your employees operate your equipment, on your property, under the supervision of a qualified, designated employee(s) responsible for their safe operation. Your company must also have an in house training program that has been approved by the DPS monitored by that person(s).

The information for each process includes:

All necessary documentation and applications are available on the Department of Public Safety website under the license tab then the hoisting tab.
