Regulation for the Operation of Fork Lift Trucks

For the operation of fork lift trucks the following regulations must be obeyed.

We have to differentiate between running the trucks inside building - and operation on public roads.

  • Running trucks inside buildings or on private property.

OSHA Safety Rules and Regulations - ANSI Capacity and Safety Regulations - as well as special regulations for operating fork lift trucks under spark proof and explosion proof conditions.

  • Operating fork lift trucks on public roads.

- The same OSHA and ANSI Rules and Regulations apply. In addition the fork lift truck must have a Motor Vehicle License and the driver must have a valid drivers license.
