Fork Lifts and Powered Industrial Trucks are Regulated by OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration) to Try to Prevent Hazards and Injuries

If you had any accident resulting in injury from a fork lift, lift truck or other truck, please contact our fork lift injury lawyers now for your absolutely FREE and confidential case evaluation and FREE and confidential case consultation.

Fork lifts are trucks that are used by many industries and businesses to move and lift heavy and large materials, containers and other objects.

OSHA is the Occupational Safety & Health Administration operated out of the United States Department of Labor. OSHA was created out of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration Act of 1970. Its key purpose was and is to assure safe and healthy working conditions for all workers, both men and women, by identifying, setting and enforcing workplace standards and also by providing certain training, education and assistance.

OSHA covers most private business workers and employees in all 50 states and also in some of our territories (like the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands), as well as some public (government) employers.


This is the official OSHA warning notice to all employers and their workers that no one under 18 years of age may legally operate a fork lift or lift truck.

Many states have their own OSHA State Plans. It is required that such State Plans have workplace safety and health standards that are “at least as effective” as federal OSHA standards. In fact, many State Plans adopt standards that are identical to federal OSHA standards. Such State Plans must also cover state and local government (public sector) workers.

California has its own Cal/OSHA State Plan – Title 8 Regulations, which may be found and reviewed by clicking here.

OSHA even offers small and medium size employers and businesses a free, voluntary and confidential safety and occupational health on-site inspection service to help such employers create or improve their injury and illness prevention programs by finding, identifying and correcting hazards. To learn more about this voluntary and free on-site inspection service, please click here: OSHA on-site consultation service or call 800.321.OSHA (6742).

OSHA reported that in fiscal year 2013 it actually conducted about 30,000 inspections at small businesses which employed over 1,250,000 workers all across Los Angeles, California and the United States. Source: OSHA on-site consultation service

It is important for employers to remember that this OSHA on-site inspection service is completely separate from its enforcement duties and does NOT result in any penalties or citations. It is simply to provide advice on OSHA regulations and standards and how to comply with same, including assisting with setting-up and operating illness and injury prevention programs.

Note: Regarding OSHA and fork lifts: It is a violation of Federal law for anyone UNDER 18 years of age ever to operate a forklift, lift truck or other similar truck regardless of what it is called or for anyone OVER 18 years of age who is not properly trained and certified to ever operate a fork lift or other similar truck.

OSHA has even created a special warning notice sticker to be used on forklifts to try to be sure this law is followed by employers and their workers, and it is depicted at the upper right portion of this page

Client Reviews
You guys did a great job in settling my case! Hope you all do well and prosper. Thank you for a job well done. Jackie C.
We had two prior attorneys who were unable to settle our car accident case. We then hired Gary and Robert Walch and they not only got us both great settlements, but personally spent time with us explaining everything clearly. We couldn't be happier. Thank you! A.M. and M.A.
Dear Gary, I just want to thank you for working so hard on my case! I know at times we were a bit difficult, but you did a great job. I thank you and your son for good results. I will pass your number on to any one that I run across who may need a PI attorney! I send you warm regards. Julie B.
Dear Gary, I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate all your efforts on my behalf. The car accident was a very traumatizing experience for me. But knowing that I could trust you and your son, Robert, helped alleviate my fears and worries. Carmella C.
Thank you for all of your hard work and thank you for making it so easy over e-mail for me. I'm a busy working mom of an Autistic 5 year old son and you guys were great. I will definitely recommend your services to family and friends. Edna G.
