There are more than a few people who believe these are real OSHA standards, but they are not actually in the OSHA CFR. Check out which ones they are at http://www.oshatraining.com/Five-OSHA-Standar... and see if you have fallen into the same trap.

Number 1 is wrong. If your forklift has a seatbelt installed by the manudacturer and the manual recommends it's use then you could be cited under 5a1 (General Duty) for not ensuring your employees do so.

But the requirement is NOT in the OSHA standards, Franko. It's covered by the general duty clause (which is not a standard). Thanks for helping prove the point and further demonstrate my statement about people being mistaken.
