Inspect a Forklift
There are more than 10,000 workplace injuries connected to forklifts happen each year, based on HRSDC and OSHA reports. Many of these accidents are caused by driver error. Lack of appropriate equipment maintenance and inspection results in many others. Forklift maintenance and operation is not only the cause of personal injuries, but also of property damage. Forklifts could damage sprinklers, building structures and overhead pipes, and other equipment when improperly operated. The following day by day check ups should be performed so as to lessen the likelihood of forklift accidents.

Prior to checking different fluid levels turn the engine off. Inspect these fluids: fuel, engine oil, hydraulic oil, brake fluid and coolant. The tires also have to be checked for signs of wear and tear. Check the air pressure in the tires. Check the forks' condition. The load backrest need to be attached tightly. Do a visual inspection of the top-clip retaining pin and heel. Next carry out an inspection of the hydraulic hoses, mast chains, cables and stops. Make certain that the finger and overhead guards are attached securely.

The LP powered forklift has propane tanks that have to be checked for rust, corrosion or damage. The battery's charge and electrolyte levels have to be tested every so often. Seat belts have to be checked for wear and tear. Check to make sure the owner's handbook is kept on-board the forklift in a storage compartment. Check the seat belt to make certain the latches are secure. Test the hood latch to make sure that it is working as it should.

Start the forklift and listen to the noise of the engine to make sure there are no unusual sounds. If there are, investigate immediately. Check the steering controls and the accelerator. The service brake and the parking break must be properly working.

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