Inspect a Forklift
There are more than 10,000 workplace injuries connected to forklifts occur each year, based on OSHA and HRSDC reports. A lot of these accidents are caused by operator error. Lack of appropriate equipment check and maintenance causes many others. Operation and maintenance of a forklift is not only the cause of personal injuries, but also of property damage. Forklifts could damage overhead pipes, sprinklers and building structures, and other equipment when utilized incorrectly. The following day by day inspections should be carried out so as to reduce the chance of forklift mishaps.

Before checking various fluid levels turn off the engine. Inspect these fluids: fuel, engine oil, hydraulic oil, coolant and brake fluid. The tires also need to be checked for indications of wear and tear. Check the tire air pressure. Check the condition of the forks. The load backrest must be tightly attached. Do a visual inspection of the top-clip retaining pin and heel. Then carry out an inspection of the mast chains, hydraulic hoses, cables and stops. Make sure that both the overhead and finger guards are firmly attached.

LP forklifts have propane tanks that need to be inspected for indications of damage, rust or corrosion. Test the battery's charge and electrolyte levels. All belts must be inspected for wear. Check to make sure the owner's instruction manual is stored on-board the forklift inside a storage compartment. Test the seat belt to make sure the latches are secure. Check the hood latch to ensure it is functioning as it should.

Start the forklift and listen to the noise of the engine to make sure there are no unusual sounds. If there are, investigate immediately. Check the accelerator and the steering controls. The service brake and the parking break should be functioning properly.

The drive control and tilt control must be inspected to guarantee proper functioning in both forward and reverse. Check the functioning of the lowering control and hoist, and the attachment control. Test the lights and horn. After that check the heater, defroster and wipers to make sure they are functioning well. Inspect each and every gauge to find out that it is reading within functional limits.
