Lift Truck Tank Safety
Among the most popular kinds of forklifts available is a propane-powered unit. The propane is utilized to fuel these machinery and it has several properties which have to be considered when working with the fuel tank. It is vital that PPE or Personal Protective Equipment is worn at all times in order to be safe.

PPE
Propane is a very cold gas. It is too cold to touch since skin exposure can lead to serious burns. When you are exchanging the propane tank or re-fueling, be certain to wear a full face shield or goggles and thick gloves. PPE is a requirement to be utilized on location so as to keep the operator as safe as possible. PPE or Personal Protective Equipment is a standard workplace requirement for the majority of businesses using this machinery and if the operator does not have the right things on, like for example steel-toe boots, a hardhat, goggles et cetera than he or she would be prohibited from using the machine.

Check the Valve
If you are in the process of exchanging the tank, be certain that the valve on the new tank is definitely turned off prior to connecting the fuel line. This is extremely essential because when you are inserting the fuel line into an open valve, you will release the propane gas. This situation could create a potentially dangerous situation.

Fire Extinguisher
Having a fire extinguisher on hand when re-fueling is occurring or during the time the tank is being changed out is another important safety measure to have implemented. The majority of businesses have fire extinguishers situated near the refueling post. It is better to have one close by and not need it, than to require one and not have one nearby. The majority of safety rules require this is set up on location as well.

Secure the Tank
The majority of propane tanks are strapped firmly into place by some kind of restraining device or strap. Be sure that this device is working correctly and correctly used so that you could prevent the tank from shifting or falling, as this could also lead to a dangerous condition.
