Significant Changes
This update of Instruction CPL 2-1.28 is needed since OSHA is reviewing the appropriate training and coverage of personnel and burden carriers. Reference to this type of powered industrial truck has been deleted from Appendix A, page A-4, Question 12, of the Instruction. Therefore, OSHA Offices are not to enforce the powered industrial truck operator training standard for Personnel and Burden Carriers, ASME B56.8.
