Inspect a Forklift
According to HRSDC and OSHA statistics, there are about 10,000 forklift-related worklplace injuries every year within North America. Several injuries are caused by the lack of correct equipment inspection and maintenance of the machinery. Other injuries are because of operator error.

Injuries are not the only issue related to forklift maintenance and operation. One more serious problem is property damage. Forklift mishaps can result in damage to sprinklers, overhead pipes, and other machinery and building walls. By completing thorough inspections on a daily basis, you could help reduce lift truck injuries.

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

You should inspect the propane tank if you are utilizing LP or liquid propane forklifts. Look for any signs of damage, rust or corrosion. Be sure that the battery has enough levels of electrolyte and which is adequately charged. Visually check all belts. Check to verify the location of the owner's handbook and make certain it is situated in the designated on-board storage compartment. Confirm the hood latch and confirm that it is operating as it is supposed to. Inspect the seatbelt and make sure it is working properly and securely latches.

You could turn on the engine after you have completed all the steps mentioned above. Listen carefully to the engine. Investigate any strange sounds immediately. Make certain that both the service brake and the parking brake are working properly. Make certain that the steering controls and the accelerator are working at optimum performance levels.
