Inspect a Forklift
There are over 10,000 workplace injuries connected to forklifts happen each year, according to HRSDC and OSHA reports. A lot of these mishaps are caused by driver error. Lack of proper equipment inspection and maintenance results in numerous others. Operation and maintenance of a forklift is not just the reason for personal injuries, but also of damage to property. Forklifts could damage building structures, overhead pipes and sprinklers, and other equipment when improperly used. The following day by day check ups should be performed so as to reduce the chance of forklift mishaps.

Turn off the engine prior to checking various fluid levels: fuel, engine oil, hydraulic oil, coolant and brake fluid. The tires must be inspected for indications of wear and tear. Check the air pressure in the tires. Check the condition of the forks. The load backrest should be firmly attached. Do a visual inspection of the top-clip retaining heel and pin. Next carry out an inspection of the hydraulic hoses, mast chains, cables and stops. Ensure that both the overhead and finger guards are attached securely.

LP forklifts have propane tanks that need to be inspected for signs of corrosion, damage or rust. Test the battery's electrolyte levels and charge. All belts should be inspected for wear. Check to make certain the owner's instruction manual is kept on-board the forklift inside a storage compartment. Check the seat belt to make sure the latches are secure. Test the hood latch to make sure that it is functioning as it should.

To make sure there are no unusual engine sounds, start the engine up and listen for any irregularities. If there are, investigate promptly. Check the steering controls and the accelerator. The parking break and the service break must be correctly working.

To ensure proper functioning in both reverse and forward, the drive control and tilt control must be checked. The functioning of the lowering control, the hoist and attachment control needs periodic inspection. Check the horn and lights. Afterward check the heater, defroster and wipers to make sure they are functioning well. Inspect each and every gauge to find out that it is reading within functional limits.
