Does OSHA require Skid Steer Training?
The short answer is, yes.
Employers are fully responsible for making sure that their workforce has proper training for the equipment they operate. So, although there may not be certain specific rules regarding skid steers, there are still general rules that must be followed in order to be in good standing.

The truth is, if you don't train your workers and there is an accident, OSHA will come and will fine you. This is why we always suggest training and documenting that training.
