Inspect a Forklift
HRSDC and OSHA report that more than 10,000 workplace injuries connected to fork lifts happen each year. Driver error is the cause of many of these mishaps. Lack of appropriate equipment check and maintenance results in many others. Forklift maintenance and operation is not just the cause of personal injuries, but also of property damage. Forklifts could damage sprinklers, building structures and overhead pipes, and other equipment when improperly operated. The following day by day check ups must be performed in order to reduce the possibility of forklift accidents.

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

The LP fueled forklift has propane tanks which need to be checked for corrosion, damage or rust. The battery's electrolyte levels and charge need to be tested every so often. Seat belts need to be checked for wear and tear. Check to make certain the owner's instruction manual is kept on-board the forklift inside a storage compartment. Test the seat belt to make sure the latches are secure. Test the hood latch to ensure it is functioning as it should.

Start the forklift and listen to the engine noise to make certain there are no unusual sounds. If there are, investigate at once. Test the accelerator and the steering controls. The parking break and the service break should be properly working.

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