Inspect a Forklift
There are more than 10,000 workplace injuries related to forklifts occur every year, according to OSHA and HRSDC reports. A lot of these accidents are caused by driver error. Lack of appropriate equipment maintenance and inspection causes numerous others. Forklift maintenance and operation is not just the cause of personal injuries, but also of property damage. Forklifts could damage sprinklers, building structures and overhead pipes, and other machinery when operated incorrectly. The following daily check ups must be done in order to lessen the chance of forklift accidents.

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

LP forklifts have propane tanks that have to be inspected for indications of corrosion, damage or rust. Test the battery's electrolyte levels and charge. All belts should be inspected for wear. Check to make certain the owner's guidebook is stored on-board the forklift in a storage compartment. Check the seat belt to make sure the latches are secure. Check the hood latch to make sure that it is functioning 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 promptly. Check the accelerator and the steering controls. The service brake and the parking break must be functioning correctly.

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