Lift Truck Tank Safety
The propane powered lift truck is amongst the most common kinds of lift trucks. These machines are powered by propane, that come with certain considerations which must be accounted for. It is really vital that PPE or also referred to as Personal Protective Equipment is worn all the time so as to be safe.

PPE
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 goggles or a full face shield. Personal Protective Equipment or PPE is a requirement to be used on site so as to keep the operator as safe as possible. PPE is a standard workplace requirement for most companies using this kind of machinery and if the driver does not have the correct things on, like for instance a hardhat, safety goggles, steel-toe boots and so on than she or he will be prohibited from utilizing the machinery.

Inspect the Valve
If you are in the process of exchanging the tank, be sure that the valve on the new tank is definitely turned off before connecting the fuel line. This is very vital because when you are inserting the fuel line into an open valve, you will release the propane gas. This condition could lead to a potentially dangerous condition.

Fire Extinguisher
One more essential safety procedure to have implemented is to have a fire extinguisher close by when the tank is being changed or fuel is being added. Most businesses have fire extinguishers located next to the refueling station. It is better to have one close and not require it, than to need one and not have one nearby. Nearly all safety rules need this is set up on site too.

Secure the Tank
Nearly all propane tanks have either a restraining device or a strap to secure the tank to the machinery. Be certain that this device is correctly functioning and properly used so that you could prevent the tank from shifting or falling, since this could also result in a dangerous situation.
