CAL OSHA requires all employers using industrial trucks or industrial tow tractors to train employees on how to follow safe handling procedures (Title 8, Section 3664 GISO). Training must be provided at initial assignment and at least annually thereafter. Instructions must be conspicuously posted at a location frequented by employees.
The OSHA California Tractor Safety poster can serve as a valuable training tool to ensure that employees are safe and informed. The poster provides specific and detailed instruction in tractor safe handling. It describes:
- operating instructions,
- how to inspect the tractor prior to operation, and
- when to report unsafe working conditions.
