Inspect a Forklift
According to HRSDC and OSHA statistics, there are about 10,000 forklift-related worklplace injuries each year within North America. Some injuries are caused by the lack of correct equipment inspection and maintenance of the machine. Other injuries are due to operator error.

Injuries are not the only issues which are related to the maintenance and operation of forklifts. One more serious concern is property damage. Lift truck accidents could lead to damage to overhead pipes, sprinklers, and other machines as well as building walls. By completing thorough inspections on a daily basis, you can help reduce forklift injuries.

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

You should inspect the propane tank if you are using liquid propane of LP forklifts. Check for any signs of corrosion, damage or rust. Be sure that the battery has enough levels of electrolyte and which is adequately charged. Visually check all belts. Check to confirm the location of the owner's handbook and make sure it is situated in the designated on-board storage compartment. Verify the hood latch and confirm that it is operating as it is supposed to. Check the seatbelt and make certain it is functioning correctly and securely latches.

You could turn the engine on after you have done all the steps mentioned above. Listen carefully to the engine. Investigate any unusual sounds immediately. Make sure that both the service brake and the parking brake are correctly working. Make certain that the steering controls and the accelerator are functioning at optimum performance levels.
