H. Con. Res. 14  (eh) - Whereas it is in the public interest to reduce the frequency of workplace accidents and the human and economic costs associated with such injuries; Whereas workplace accidents involving powered industrial trucks are often the result of operation by poorly trained, untrained, or unauthorized operators; Whereas Federal regulations promulgated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and codified at 29 C.F.R. 1910.178 require that operators of powered industrial trucks be trained and authorized; Whereas existing regulations lack any guidelines to measure whether operators of powered industrial trucks are in fact trained and authorized; Whereas operator training programs have been demonstrated to reduce the frequency and severity of workplace accidents involving powered industrial trucks; and Whereas a petition to amend existing regulations to specify the proper components of a training program for operation of powered industrial trucks has been pending before the Occupational Safety and Health Administration since March 1988: Now, therefore, be it Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is requested to publish, within one year of passage of this resolution, proposed regulations amending the regulation published as 29 C.F.R. 1910.178 to specify the components of an adequate operator training program and to provide that only trained employees be authorized to operate powered industrial trucks.
