The Brewers Association Safety Subcommittee has released a new resource, Best Practices for the Management of Powered Industrial Trucks. The document provides a helpful, consistent guideline for brewers to use when developing their safety programs and policies regarding the use of powered industrial trucks (PITs), including forklifts.
In this Power Hour, Tony McCrimmon and Reva Golden outline how this guide can help breweries understand, develop and implement an effective plan for the management of PITs in the workplace. They also discuss training program requirements, safe operating practices, hazard assessments and more.
