Forklift Operator Evaluation Form

OSHA standard 1910.178 covers the safe use of powered industrial trucks (PIT), which include forklift equipment. You must regularly assess all forklift drivers at your facility to ensure compliance with these regulations. The evaluation should look at each stage of the driving process:

  • Pre-operation checks
  • Picking up a load
  • Traveling with a load
  • Setting down a load
  • Parking
  • Fueling and battery recharging

This free forklift driving evaluation form addresses all these areas and gives evaluators space to make notes on the driver’s behaviors and areas of improvement. You can download the form from Google Docs and either print it out or fill it out digitally. Don’t forget to store all past forklift evaluations in case you have to do a PIT incident investigation and need documentation to support your findings.
