Forklift Tank Safety
One of the most popular kinds of lift trucks available is a propane-powered unit. The propane is used to fuel these vehicles and it has some properties that have to be considered when working with the fuel tank. It is really essential that Personal Protective Equipment or also called PPE is worn all the time to be safe.

Personal Protective Equipment or PPE
Propane gas is really cold. Very cold in fact that contact to your skin could cause serious burns to occur. When you are re-fueling or exchanging the propane tank, be sure to wear thick gloves and goggles or a full face shield. PPE or Personal Protective Equipment is a requirement to be utilized on site so as to keep the operator as safe as possible. Personal Protective Equipment or PPE is a standard workplace requirement for the majority of companies utilizing this type of machinery and if the operator does not have the correct items on, like for instance a hardhat, safety goggles, steel-toe boots and so forth than he or she might be prohibited from using the machinery.

Inspect the Valve
Prior to connecting the fuel line in the process of exchanging the tank, make certain that the new tanks valve is turned off. This is very essential because when you are inserting the fuel line into an open valve, you will release the propane gas. This situation could lead to a potentially hazardous condition.

Fire Extinguisher
Having a fire extinguisher on hand during the time the tank is being changed out or when re-fueling is occurring is another important safety procedure to have implemented. The majority of companies have fire extinguishers located next to the refueling post. It is better to have one close and not need it, than to need one and not have one nearby. The majority of safety regulations require this is set up on site also.

Secure the Tank
The majority of propane tanks are strapped firmly into place by some type of restraining device or strap. Be sure that this device is correctly functioning and used properly so that you could prevent the tank from falling or shifting, since this can also lead to a dangerous situation.
