Fuel Storage
The smaller fuel canisters and bigger refueling tanks should be stored in a different building or complex so as to be more secure. To add more safety, all areas in the vicinity should have "No Smoking" signs are clearly displayed. Ideally, the fuel tanks must be stored in a secure enclosure which can just be accessible by authorized employees. It is vital for the safety of the operator, as well as everybody they work with, that these safety regulations are strictly followed.

The fuel enclosure itself has to be protected from vehicle impact. Using retaining systems like concrete bumpers for instance, could carry out this task. Other retaining methods could be used. It is also necessary to have a fire extinguisher nearby at the refueling station. Additionally, anyone who is operating the fueling station is required to be trained and also needs to be trained to use the fire extinguisher effectively and safely. With regards to the fuel aspect, safety is of utmost importance.

Operator Training
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration requires that all operators utilizing a forklift must be properly trained. This training covers a classroom part in addition to hands-on training. Once the training sessions have been completed, the individual should be tested to be able to prove that they understand the training materials. A portion of this training also includes the proper way of the refueling process of the forklift. The training also includes precautions involved for the refueling of any unit they could be driving as well as site-specific procedures.

Medical Treatment
Material Safety Data Sheet or MSDS should be located in all facilities where forklifts are operating. This center will include the MSDSs for all solvents and chemicals which are used on site. This would also include the acid in the lift truck battery, together with the propane that is utilized to refuel the unit.

The MSDSs sheets are required to be available to all personnel at all times. Like for example, if an exposure incident happens, the individual has to be evaluated immediately. If any medical attention is needed, to must be given without any delay. Normally, if you are not certain if medical treatment is considered necessary, as a general rule; have a physician examine the injury if you fear it is severe. Always better to be safe than sorry.
