July 13 CONN-OSHA Seminar Addresses Powered Industrial (Fork) Truck Operation

For immediate release
June 9, 2010

WETHERSFIELD, Operators of “fork” trucks” must meet the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s Powered Industrial Truck Standard which includes formal instruction, practical training, and periodic grading by certified instructors.  Operators of powered industrial trucks can fulfill training requirements by attending a “Powered Industrial Truck (Fork Truck)” seminar on July 13. 

The session, which will run from 10 a.m. to noon, will be held Conference Room A of the agency's Central Office, located at 200 Folly Brook Boulevard in Wethersfield.  

“There are always hazards associated with operating any type of equipment,” explains John Able, CONN-OSHA Occupational Safety Training Specialist, who is coordinating the program. “So, it’s best to get all the latest training information and know all the requirements as it may pertain to your own health and safety while you are operating this type of vehicle.  That’s what we’re trying to accomplish with our Powered Industrial Truck (Fork Truck) seminar, and we welcome your participation.”

Admission to the seminar is free, but pre-registration for the seminar is required. To register for the session, or for additional information, please contact John Able via email at
