Inspect a Forklift
Workplace injuries related to forklift operation within North America average about more than 10,000 every year, based on the statistics from the HRSDC and OSHA. Several injuries are caused by the lack of proper equipment inspection and maintenance of the machine. Other injuries are because of operator error.

Injuries are not the only problem related to forklift maintenance and operation. One more serious issue is damage to property. Lift truck mishaps could result in damage to overhead pipes, sprinklers, and other machines and building walls. By completing thorough inspections every day, you can help lessen lift truck injuries.

You should first turn the engine off prior to inspecting the forklift. Check the levels of the fuel, engine oil, coolant, brake fluid and hydraulic oil. Visually check the tires of the equipment looking for indications of wear, general condition and correct air pressure. Visually check the forks on the front of the equipment as well. Verify the condition of the top-clip retaining pin and heel. Check that the backrest is securely attached. Make sure that the overhead and finger guards are attached. Visually inspect the cables and stops, the mast chains and the hydraulic hoses as well.

On liquid propane or LP forklifts, inspect the propane tank. Look for any signs of damage, rust or corrosion. Be certain that the battery has enough electrolyte levels and which is charged adequately. Visually check all belts. Check to confirm the location of the owner's handbook and make certain it is situated in the designated on-board storage compartment. Verify the hood latch and make certain that it is functioning as it is supposed to. Check the seatbelt and make sure it is working correctly and securely latches.

You could turn the engine on after you have done all the steps mentioned above. Listen carefully to the engine. Investigate any unusual sounds right away. Make sure that both the service brake and the parking brake are correctly working. Confirm that the accelerator and the steering controls are working at optimum performance levels.
