Fuel Storage
The smaller fuel canisters and larger refueling tanks should be stored in a different building or complex so as to be more safe. To add more safety, all areas in the vicinity must have "No Smoking" signs are clearly displayed. Ideally, the fuel tanks must be stored in a secure enclosure that can just be accessed by authorized employees. It is really vital for the safety of the operator, as well as everybody they work with, that these safety regulations are strictly followed.

The fuel enclosure itself has to be protected from vehicle impact. Utilizing retaining systems such as concrete bumpers for instance, can carry out this job. Other retaining methods could be utilized. It is also important to always have a fire extinguisher nearby at the refueling station. Additionally, anyone who is operating the fueling station must be trained and also must be trained to effectively and safely use the fire extinguisher. When it comes to the fuel aspect, safety is of utmost importance.

Operator Training
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration or OSHA require that everyone who is using an industrial powered forklift or lift truck is trained correctly. This training covers both the hands-on training and the classroom part. After finishing the training session, the individual must be tested in order to show that they understand the training materials. A part of this training also includes the proper method of the refueling process of the forklift. The training also involves site-specific procedures and the precautions involved for the refueling of any unit they could be driving.

Medical Treatment
MSDS or Material Safety Data Sheets must be located inside all facilities where lift trucks are operating. This center would include the MSDSs for all solvents and chemicals which are used on site. This will also cover the propane which is used to refuel the unit, together with the acid in the forklift battery.

The MSDSs sheets are required to be available to all employees at all times. For example, if an exposure incident occurs, the person has to be evaluated immediately. If any medical attention is required, to must be given without any delay. Normally, if you are not certain if medical treatment is needed, as a general rule; have a physician examine the injury if you truly believe it is severe. Better to be safe than sorry.
