What are powered industrial trucks?

Powered industrial trucks are fork trucks, platform trucks, motorized hand trucks and other vehicles used for moving materials within our facility; all have internal combustion or electric motors. Farm vehicles, earth moving and over-the-road vehicles are not considered powered industrial trucks.

powered industrial trucks are different than cars
Powered industrial trucks are different than cars

How? Consider the following differences when comparing powered industrial trucks to cars:

  • Heavier than a vehicle, longer stopping distance
  • Limited visibility
  • Rear steer
  • Top heavy/center of gravity
  • Operates close to people and things
  • Stiffer suspension

These differences create hazards!
