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

PPE
Propane gas is really cold. So cold in fact that contact to your skin could cause serious burns to occur. Whenever you are exchanging the propane tank or re-fueling, be sure to wear thick gloves and a full face shield or goggles. 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 the majority of businesses using this kind of machinery and if the driver does not have the right items on, such as a hardhat, safety goggles, steel-toe boots and that than she or he may be forbidden from utilizing the machinery.

Inspect the Valve
If you are in the process of exchanging the tank, be certain that the valve on the new tank is definitely turned off before connecting the fuel line. This is very essential 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 situation.

Fire Extinguisher
Another vital safety procedure to have implemented is to have a fire extinguisher nearby when fuel is being added or when the tank is being changed. Most businesses have fire extinguishers situated near the refueling station. It is better to have one close and not require it, than to require one and not have one handy. The majority of safety regulations need this is set up on site also.

Secure the Tank
Most propane tanks are strapped securely into place by some type of strap or restraining device. Be sure that this device is correctly working and utilized correctly so that you can prevent the tank from shifting or falling, since this could also lead to a hazardous condition.
