Inspect a Forklift
Workplace injuries related to forklift usage within North America average about over 10,000 each year, based on the statistics from the HRSDC and OSHA. Some injuries are caused by the lack of maintenance of the machine and correct equipment inspection. Other injuries are because of operator error.

Injuries are not the only problems that are related to the operation and maintenance of forklifts. Another serious issue is property damage. Lift truck accidents can cause damage to overhead pipes, sprinklers, and other equipment and building walls. By completing thorough inspections on a daily basis, you could help reduce forklift injuries.

When starting an inspection, turn off the engine. Check the levels of the fuel, engine oil, coolant, brake fluid and hydraulic oil. Visually inspect the machine's tires looking for signs of wear, correct air pressure and general condition. Visually inspect the forks on the front of the machinery as well. Confirm the condition of the heel and top-clip retaining pin. Check that the backrest is securely attached. Make certain that both the finger guard and overhead are attached. Visually inspect the stops and cables, the mast chains and the hydraulic hoses as well.

On LP or liquid propane forklifts, check the propane tank. Check for any indications of corrosion, damage or rust. Be sure that the battery has enough levels of electrolyte and that is charged adequately. Visually check all belts. Check to verify the location of the owner's manual and make sure it is located in the designated on-board storage compartment. Verify the hood latch and make certain that it is functioning as it is supposed to. Inspect the seatbelt and make sure it latches securely and is working correctly.

After doing the steps above, turn on the engine. Listen carefully to the engine. Investigate any strange sounds right away. Check that both the service brake and the parking brake are functioning correctly. Make certain that the accelerator and the steering controls are operating at optimum performance levels.
