Abstract The two studies described in this paper were initiated by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health in order to clarify knowledge concerning the value of occupational safety training and the influence of post-training management actions on the safety performance of workers engaged in a semi-skilled job. Industrial lift truck operators were selected for study because industrial lift trucks are widely used throughout industry, lift truck operations demonstrate a high risk and propensity for accidents, and the risk of injury associated with typical lift truck operations depends to a large extent on the performance of the operators, although the vehicle, workplace layout, and the task are also factors.
