Hazards of Type-G lift trucks
Forklifts perform an essential part in the operations of warehouses and other businesses. These machines are capable of lifting and moving huge loads from one location to another. There are many variations on the forklift. The primary variation is the way in which different units are fueled. "LP" lift trucks are the type that is most popular. They run on liquid propane. Type "E" lift trucks operate on electricity and have large rechargeable batteries. Type "D" forklifts utilize diesel and type "G" use gasoline. Though all lift trucks, similar to any piece of heavy machine, can pose a hazard, the type of forklifts which are powered by gasoline pose the most risks.

Fire
Type G forklifts can present a fire hazard. Gasoline-powered forklifts are not held to rigorous standards in reducing lessening fire hazards. The biggest cause of fire is because of gasoline leaks that enable gasoline fumes to escape. This can result from normal wear and from mishaps or driving on really rough terrain. These circumstances pose a risk and could cause fire. Thus, a typical Type G lift truck should never be used in conditions where elevated fire risk is deemed unacceptable. For example, these kinds of forklifts should not be used around dangerous or explosive chemicals.

Explosion
Type G forklifts also pose a risk of explosion, as do those which operate on diesel and liquid propane. A gasoline powered forklift could explode as a result of a serious accident in circumstances where an ignition source and a gasoline leak are present. An explosion could happen when sparks are created in the collision and the sparks ignite the gasoline.

Fumes and Exhaust
Because of bad fumes, the gas forklift does pose a risk for inhalation, that can be deadly in higher concentrations. Fumes could result from the exhaust itself or from gasoline leaks. Thus, a Type G forklift is really not suggested for any environment which is poorly ventilated. The exhaust would present a serious danger in enclosed spaces. This kind of forklift must be utilized with care when operated in close proximity to individuals.
