Fuel Storage
In order to be secure, the smaller fuel canisters or the big refueling tank needs to be stored away from the main complex or building. Adding to the safety factor, it is vital that "No Smoking" signs are prominently displayed in the vicinity. Ideally, the fuel tanks must be stored in a secure enclosure which can only be accessible by authorized personnel. It is vital for the operator's safety, and everybody they work with, that these safety measures are strictly followed.

To be protected from vehicle impact, the fuel enclosure itself needs to be protected. This job can utilize retraining systems such as concrete bumpers. Other retaining methods can be used. It is also important to have a fire extinguisher nearby at the refueling station. Furthermore, anybody who is operating the fueling station should be trained and also must be trained to effectively and safely utilize the fire extinguisher. When it comes to the fuel aspect, safety is of utmost importance.

Operator Training
The OSHA or the Occupational Safety and Health Administration require that everyone who is utilizing an industrial powered forklift or lift truck is trained correctly. This training includes both the hands-on training as well as the classroom part. As soon as finishing the training session, the individual must be tested in order to show that they understand the training materials. A part of this training also covers the correct way of the refueling process of the lift truck. The training also includes site-specific procedures as well as the precautions involved for the refueling of any unit they might be driving.

Medical Treatment
There must be an MSDS or Material Safety Data Sheet center situated within the facility where the lift truck is operating. This center would include the MSDSs for all solvents and chemicals that are utilized on site. This would also cover the acid in the lift truck battery, together with the propane that is utilized to refuel the unit.

The MSDSs sheets are required to be available to all workers all the time. Like for instance, if an exposure incident happens, the person needs to be evaluated at once. If any medical attention is considered necessary, to should be given without any delay. Generally, if you are not certain if medical care is needed, as a general rule; have the injury examined by a doctor if you really think it is severe. Always better to be safe than sorry.
