I.   Background for the Trainer:
OSHA clearly states that only trained and authorized personnel are permitted to operate a forklift.
II.   Speaker’s Notes:
Authorized operators have the authority and the responsibility to prevent unauthorized operators from even getting on a forklift.  The untrained individual can easily hurt or kill someone or damage the facility.
Keep pedestrians safely away from the forklift when moving, lifting, etc.
If the forklift is found to be unsafe during a preoperation inspection,  the authorized driver has the responsibility to lock it out until it is repaired.
