Central Transport LLC Agrees to Enhanced Safety Measures

The company has pledged to fix forklift hazards.

After OSHA filed a complaint regarding forklift hazards, Central Transport LLC has reached an agreement with the agency that commits to improving forklift safety at more than 100 terminals in 26 states. OSHA previously identified hazards at 11 terminals in nine states.

"These widespread, recurring hazards required a comprehensive solution," said Dr. David Michaels, assistant secretary of labor for occupational safety and health. "This settlement includes detailed steps and a timetable for Central Transport to systematically review, assess, and improve safety for its employees at all its locations that come under OSHA's jurisdiction. Other employers with hazards at multiple work sites should take heed of this settlement and recognize the value of implementing comprehensive and effective corrective action to protect the workers, life, and limb."

Central Transport must hire an independent third party to evaluate, update, and improve the company's procedures for preventative maintenance repairs, operator inspections, and safe operation of powered industrial trucks.
