Frequently asked questions
Do we ship internationally?
We only ship to the US & Canada at this time.
Are these products universal for all makes of forklifts?
Yes! All of our products can be mounted and used on any make of Forklift.
How often does a forklift have to be inspected?
OSHA requires that forklift vehicles have to be inspected at least daily, or after each shift when used around the clock. You will find this requirement in the Powered Industrial Truck standard at 1910.178(q)(7).
How long is an employer required to keep forklift daily inspection sheets?
Are there any times when a driver does not have to wear a seatbelt?
OSHA's current policy does not distinguish based on the number of stops. It requires that if seat belts are on the equipment, they must be used at all times while operating.
Must we retrofit our powered industrial trucks with seatbelts if they were not manufactured with them?
Federal OSHA's current enforcement policy on the use of seat belts on forklifts is that employers must require operators of forklifts that are equipped with operator restraint devices, including seat belts, to use the devices. In addition, OSHA may also cite employers who do not take advantage of a manufacturer operator restraint system or seat belt retrofit program. This is all explained in Federal OSHA's 10/09/1996 Seat Belt Policy (corrected in 2007). (Federal OSHA enforces the seat belt issue under the General Duty Clause of the OSH Act; there is not a specific regulation.)
