Applying industrial truck material handling techniques and recognizing safe load capacity were among topics presented to government representatives at the February “Industrial Truck Best Practices” seminar in Tampa on February 9, 2006. OSHA and the Industrial Truck Association (ITA) used their Alliance, which was signed in January 2004, as a basis for developing the best practices seminar that provided insight into the safe use of forklifts, front loaders and motorized pallets for OSHA inspectors and University of South Florida Consultation Program representatives.
