Hazards of Type-G forklifts
The lift truck is important for performing warehouse tasks. These really capable equipment raise and transport loads of immense size from one place to another. Lift trucks have numerous variations. The primary variation is the way in which different units are fueled. "LP" lift trucks are the type that is most common. They run on liquid propane. Type "E" lift trucks run on electricity and have large rechargeable batteries. Type "D" lift trucks are fueled by diesel and type "G" use gasoline. While all kinds of lift trucks, similar to any piece of heavy machine, can pose a danger, gasoline powered forklifts pose the most risks.

Fire
Forklifts labelled type G could present a fire hazard. Gas lift trucks are not made with the same rigorous standards. Gas leaks are the biggest cause of fire due mainly to gas leaks and also escaped gas fumes. This can result driving on extremely rough terrain and from normal wear or from mishaps. These circumstances pose a danger and can lead to fire. Hence, a standard Type G forklift must never be utilized in conditions where elevated fire risk is deemed unacceptable. For instance, these types of forklifts should not be used around explosives or hazardous chemicals.

Explosion
Type G forklifts also pose a risk of explosion, as do those that run on diesel and liquid propane. A gasoline powered forklift could explode as a result of a serious accident in circumstances where a gasoline leak and an ignition source are present. An explosion can take place when sparks are created in the collision and the sparks ignite the gasoline.

Fumes and Exhaust
Type G lift trucks pose a serious inhalation hazard due to poisonous fumes. Gasoline fumes could be deadly in high concentrations. Fumes can result from the exhaust itself or from gasoline leaks. Hence, a Type G forklift is really not recommended for any environment that is poorly ventilated. The exhaust will present a serious danger in enclosed places. This type of forklift should be utilized with caution when operated in close proximity to people.
