Author: Jeff Ord,

On April 3, 2006, OSHA revised and amended the 29CFR1910.178, Powered Industrial Trucks regulation by revising the 1910.178(a)(2) paragraph to read as follows:

(a)(2) All new powered industrial trucks acquired and used by an employer shall meet the design and construction requirements for powered industrial trucks established in the “American National Standard for Powered Industrial Trucks, Part II, ANSI B56.1-1969”, which is incorporated by reference as specified in 1910.6, except for vehicles intended primarily for earth moving or over-the-road hauling.

This technical amendment revises the Powered Industrial Trucks Standard 29CFR1910.178. Please refer to the Federal Register #71:16669-16675, dated April 3, 2006.

Employers must be reminded that it is their total responsibility for creating and maintaining compliant, safe and healthful work environments for their employees. Violations cited by OSHA are subject to enforceable citations and fines imposed by the OSHA (5)(a)(1) General Duty Clause.
