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

Injuries are not the only issues that are related to the maintenance and operation of forklifts. One more serious problem is property damage. Forklift mishaps can result in damage to sprinklers, overhead pipes, and other equipment 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 engine oil, fuel, hydraulic oil, coolant and brake fluid. Visually inspect the machine's tires looking for indications of wear, general condition and appropriate air pressure. Visually check the forks on the front of the machinery too. Verify the condition of the heel and top-clip retaining pin. Make certain that the backrest is firmly attached. Make sure that both the finger guard and overhead are attached. Visually inspect the stops and cables, the mast chains and the hydraulic hoses as well.

On LP or liquid propane forklifts, inspect the propane tank. Look for any indications of rust, corrosion or damage. Be certain that the battery has enough levels of electrolyte and which is sufficiently charged. Visually check all belts. Check to verify the location of the owner's handbook and make sure it is situated in the designated on-board storage compartment. Verify the hood latch and confirm that it is operating as it is supposed to. Check the seatbelt and make sure it latches securely and is functioning correctly.

After doing the above steps, turn on the engine. Carefully listen to the engine. Investigate any unusual sounds immediately. Make sure that both the parking brake and the service brake are properly working. Confirm that the accelerator and the steering controls are functioning at optimum performance levels.
