DOL/OSHA RIN: 1218-AD26 Publication ID: Spring 2023 
Title: Powered Industrial Trucks Design Standard Update 

OSHA is proposing to update its reference to the ANSI B56.1-1969 Safety Standard for Powered Industrial Trucks found in its powered industrial truck standards to also include the latest version of ANSI/ITSDF B56.1a-2018, Safety Standard for Low Lift and High Lift Trucks.  This rulemaking will incorporate by reference the consensus standard provisions related to the design and construction of powered industrial trucks, and is a continuation of OSHA’s ongoing effort to update references to consensus standards published by standards-developing organizations.  The purpose of these rulemakings is to improve worker safety and health by ensuring that consensus standards referenced in OSHA rules address current industry practice and state-of-the-art technology.  In a separate action (RIN 1218-AC99), OSHA is collecting information to evaluate the need to update requirements related to the maintenance and use of powered industrial trucks and training of operators.
