Marine Terminal Subcommittee: PIT 360/Forklift Safety Program

The SMIA Safety Committee's Marine Terminal Subcommittee is excited to share its new project with fellow Signal Mutual Members.

The objective of the Powered Industrial Truck (PIT) program is to provide the fundamentals for the operation, use, and maintenance of PIT’s. This program applies to mobile, power-driven PIT used to carry, push, pull, lift, stack, or tier material. Maritime PITs may include fork PITs, container top handlers, container reach stackers, side handlers, front-end loaders, excavators, combination vacuum lifts, sweepers, yard tractors, and other specialized equipment. The policies and procedures in this program are to be used to control the hazards employed with material handling activities throughout the workplace.
