Lift Truck Tank Safety
The propane powered lift truck is one of the most common kinds of lift trucks. These vehicle are powered by propane, which come with some considerations which should be accounted for. It is very vital that PPE or Personal Protective Equipment is worn all the time to be safe.

PPE or Personal Protective Equipment
Propane is a very cold gas. It is very cold to touch since skin exposure could lead to severe burns. Whenever you are exchanging the propane tank or re-fueling, be sure to wear a full face shield or goggles and thick gloves. PPE or Personal Protective Equipment is a requirement to be used on site in order to keep the operator as safe as possible. PPE is a standard workplace requirement for the majority of companies using this kind of machinery and if the driver does not have the right things on, like steel-toe boots, a hardhat, goggles et cetera than she or he would be prohibited from using the machinery.

Check the Valve
If you are in the process of exchanging the tank, be sure that the valve on the new tank is definitely turned off prior to connecting the fuel line. This is really essential because when you are inserting the fuel line into an open valve, you will release the propane gas. This situation could create a potentially dangerous situation.

Fire Extinguisher
Another important safety procedure to have implemented is to have a fire extinguisher close by when the tank is being changed or fuel is being added. Nearly all companies have fire extinguishers located near the refueling post. It is better to have one nearby and not need it, than to need one and not have one nearby. Most safety rules require this is set up on site also.

Secure the Tank
Nearly all propane tanks have either a strap or a restraining device to secure the tank to the machine. Be certain that this device is working properly and properly utilized so that you can prevent the tank from falling or shifting, as this can also result in a hazardous condition.
