Fuel Storage
The smaller fuel canisters and bigger refueling tanks should be stored in another building or complex in order to be more secure. To add more safety, all areas in the vicinity must have "No Smoking" signs are prominently displayed. Ideally, the fuel tanks should be stored in a secure enclosure that could only be accessible by authorized employees. It is vital for the safety of the operator, and everybody they work with, that these safety measures are strictly complied with.

The fuel enclosure itself has to be protected from vehicle impact. Using retaining systems like concrete bumpers for example, can accomplish this job. Other retaining methods can be used. It is also necessary to always have a fire extinguisher nearby at the refueling station. Furthermore, anyone who is operating the fueling station must be trained and also needs to be trained to safely and effectively utilize the fire extinguisher. With regards to the fuel aspect, safety is of utmost importance.

Operator Training
The OSHA or the Occupational Safety and Health Administration require that everyone who is utilizing an industrial powered forklift or lift truck is trained properly. This training covers both the hands-on training and the classroom portion. After completing the training session, the individual needs to be tested to be able to prove that they understand the training materials. A portion of this training also includes the proper way of the refueling process of the forklift. The training also involves precautions involved for the refueling of any unit they might be driving as well as site-specific procedures.

Medical Treatment
There should be a Material Safety Data Sheet or MSDS center situated inside the facility where the lift truck is operating. This center would include the MSDSs for all chemicals and solvents that are used on site. This will also cover the acid in the forklift battery, together with the propane that is used to refuel the unit.

The MSDSs sheets are required to be available to all employees at all times. Like for instance, if an exposure incident happens, the person needs to be evaluated immediately. If any medical attention is required, to must be given without any delay. Normally, if you are uncertain if medical care is considered necessary, as a general rule; have a physician examine the injury if you fear it is severe. Better to be safe than sorry.
