Inspect a Forklift
Based on OSHA and HRSDC statistics, there are around 10,000 forklift-related worklplace injuries each year within North America. Several injuries result from the lack of proper equipment inspection and maintenance of the machinery. Other injuries are caused by operator error.

Injuries are not the only problem related to lift truck maintenance and operation. One more serious concern is property damage. Lift truck mishaps could cause damage to overhead pipes, sprinklers, and other machinery as well as building walls. By completing thorough inspections every day, you can help reduce forklift injuries.

You must first turn off the engine prior to checking the forklift. Check the levels of the fuel, engine oil, hydraulic oil, coolant and brake fluid. Visually check the machine's tires looking for indications of wear, appropriate air pressure and general condition. Visually check the forks on the front of the machine too. Confirm the condition of the top-clip retaining pin and heel. Make sure that the backrest is attached firmly. Confirm that both the finger guard and overhead are attached. Visually inspect the cables and stops, the hydraulic hoses and the mast chains as well.

You should check the propane tank if you are utilizing LP or liquid propane forklifts. Check for any indications of rust, corrosion or damage. Be certain that the battery has adequate electrolyte levels and that is sufficiently charged. Visually inspect all belts. Check to confirm the location of the owner's manual and make sure it is located in the designated on-board storage compartment. Verify the hood latch and make certain that it is functioning as it is supposed to. Check the seatbelt and make certain it is functioning properly and securely latches.

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