Lift Truck Tank Safety
The propane powered forklift is one of the most common kinds of lift trucks offered on the market today. When utilizing a propane lift truck, there are some things about the fuel tank and the fuel source to think about. For instance, it is really essential that all PPE or Personal Protective Equipment is worn each and every time a driver is on the machinery and in numerous areas, on the jobsite.

PPE
Propane gas is quite cold and could result in severe burns to the skin if exposed, no matter how minor the contact. Thus, it is required that when you are exchanging the propane tank or completing a re-fueling process safety goggles or a full face shield and thick gloves have to be worn for protection. Numerous workplaces require steel-toe boots to be worn too when carrying heavy objects is part of your job. Each workplace has different regulations set in place that pertain to the specific needs of the business. Your supervisor would inform you of what types of PPE objects have to be worn prior to your starting your shift.

No Smoking
Because of the high flammability factor, there can certainly be no open flames or any kind of smoking going on in the re-fueling zone. Propane gas is highly ignitable and it is very vital that it is never exposed to any type of ignition source or an extremely dangerous exploding situation would unfold.

Inspect the Valve
Make certain that the valve on the new tank is turned off before connecting the fuel line when exchanging the fuel tank. If you inadvertently insert the fuel line into an open valve, propane gas would be released. Neglecting this factor could potentially lead to a very disastrous situation.

Fire Extinguisher
A fire extinguisher must be made available, whenever the tank is being changed out during the refueling process. The majority of businesses require that a fire extinguisher be mounted on every lift truck. This is an essential safety rule which must be made a priority in the workplace.

Secure the Tank
The majority of propane tanks utilize a restraining device like a strap to keep them stable. Be sure that this security feature is working correctly because it is being utilized for the vital task to stop the tank from falling or shifting. A faulty restraining condition can cause the tank coming loose and falling or rolling around dangerous.
