About Us

The U.S. Forklift Association strengthens the workforce.

USFA works closely with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to conduct compliance officer training seminars, provide workplace safety materials and communicate information. And for years USFA has worked to transition the B56 series of standards from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers to the Industrial Truck Standards Development Foundation; to help establish the Alliance of Industrial Truck Organizations that gathers data on lift truck markets around the world; and to lead development of a new set of international standards affecting products through the International Organization for Standardization.

USFA provides membership value and engagement. A comprehensive statistics program tracks forklift employment opportunities by truck class, lift code, county and, power source, lift capacity and tire type through data submitted from every regular member. A membership database connects organizations with forklift operators. Plus, an annual meeting supports new policy development, networking and training activities.

USFA positively impacts its members’ business profiles while offering a return on investment through exclusive members-only resources and services. If you are dedicated to the industrial truck market and the material handling industry, USFA welcomes you to become an integral part of this organization.

A dream team to hand out dream opportunities.

It takes a team of dedicated group of member organizations to make sure the industry is reaching OSHA standards and efficiencies. We're fortunate to have some of the best dedicating their time, energy, and expertise to our cause.
