Forklift Tank Safety
The propane powered lift truck is one of the most common types of lift trucks. These vehicle are powered by propane, which come with certain considerations that must be accounted for. It is important that Personal Protective Equipment or also called PPE is worn all the time so as to be safe.

PPE or Personal Protective Equipment
Propane gas is very cold. Very cold in fact that contact to your skin can cause serious burns to happen. When you are re-fueling or exchanging the propane tank, be sure to wear thick gloves and a full face shield or goggles. PPE or Personal Protective Equipment is a requirement to be utilized on location in order to keep the operator as safe as possible. PPE is a standard workplace requirement for the majority of companies using this machinery and if the operator does not have the correct things on, like a hardhat, safety goggles, steel-toe boots and so on than she or he would be forbidden from using the machinery.

Check the Valve
Before connecting the fuel line in the process of exchanging the tank, make sure that the new tanks valve is turned off. This is very important because when you are inserting the fuel line into an open valve, you will release the propane gas. This situation can create a potentially dangerous situation.

Fire Extinguisher
Another vital safety measure to have implemented is to have a fire extinguisher close by when the tank is being changed or fuel is being added. Nearly all companies have fire extinguishers situated next to the refueling post. It is better to have one close and not require it, than to need one and not have one handy. The majority of safety rules need this is set up on site also.

Secure the Tank
Most propane tanks are strapped securely into place by some type of strap or restraining device. Be sure that this device is functioning correctly and properly utilized so that you could prevent the tank from falling or shifting, as this could also result in a dangerous situation.
