Powered Industrial Trucks Interactive Glossary (1910.178)


Every year, OSHA creates a list of the ten most commonly cited standard violations. Here’s the most recent list–OSHA’s Top Ten for 2015.

Because the same standards typically appear year after year, we make a lot of resources available to our readers for each of those standards. That includes free downloadable safety word games, blog posts chock full of informational and training resources, and interactive glossaries about the terms defined in the standard.

And that’s what we’ve got for you in this article–an interactive glossary of terms defined in OSHA’s Powered Industrial Truck (PIT) standard, 1910.178.

Just click the MORE button below to check it out.
