OSHA’s Rules for Temporary Employees
OSHA has issued several letters of interpretations on the subject of training of temporary employees. Basically, there is a shared responsibility for assuring employees are adequately trained. The responsibility for providing training should be spelled out in the contractual agreement between the two parties. The temporary agency or the contracting employer may conduct the training and evaluation of operators from a temporary agency as required by the standard; however, the host employer (or other employer who enters into a contract with the temporary agency) must provide site-specific information and training on the use of the particular types of trucks and workplace-related topics that are present in the workplace.
Staffing Agency Alert: Misunderstood regulation means huge opportunity for staffing industry.
OSHA has spelled out its regulations concerning temporary employees in a series of letters of interpretation. The forklift temp agency and the contracted employer (that is, you) have shared responsibility for the training and certification of forklift operators. According to the OSHA standard, either the contracted employer or agency may conduct the staffing agency forklift training, evaluation and certification of forklift operators employed by the forklift temp agency.
It is the responsibility of the host employer to deliver training and information about the workplace and on equipment that is used on the premises.
OSHA Regulations for Forklift Training
Forklift training must consist of both formal written instruction and practical training, followed by an evaluation. OSHA law states that, regardless of which party provides the forklift certification classroom training (Step One of the CertifyMe.net two-step forklift training and certification program), it is the designated evaluator of the host employer (again, you!) who must conduct the practical training and evaluation (Step Two).
According to OSHA, forklift training must also consist of two main topics: truck-related topics and workplace-related topics, which apply to all operators.
Truck-related topics include:
- Operating instructions, warnings, and precautions
- Difference between the truck and the automobile
- Truck controls and instrumentation
- Operation of the engine or motor
- Truck steering and maneuvering
- Fork attachments
- Vehicle capacity and stability
- Equipment inspections and maintenance
- Refueling or battery re-charging
- Operating limitations
Workplace-related topics include:
- Driving over various surface conditions
- Composition of loads
- Load stability
- Load manipulation, stacking, and unstacking
- Navigating pedestrian areas
- Maneuvering narrow aisles and tight spaces
- Driving around hazardous locations
- Navigating ramps and slopes
- Driving in close environments
