Inspect a Forklift
There are more than 10,000 workplace injuries related to forklifts occur every year, based on HRSDC and OSHA reports. Many of these accidents are caused by operator error. Lack of appropriate equipment check and maintenance results in numerous others. Forklift operation and maintenance is not only the cause of personal injuries, but also of property damage. Forklifts can damage overhead pipes, sprinklers and building structures, and other machinery when improperly operated. The following day by day check ups should be carried out so as to lessen the chance of forklift mishaps.

Before checking different fluid levels turn the engine off. Inspect these fluids: hydraulic oil, fuel, engine oil, coolant and brake fluid. The tires also need to be checked for indications of wear and tear. Check the tire air pressure. Check the condition of the forks. The load backrest should be attached tightly. Do a visual check of the top-clip retaining pin and heel. Afterward perform an inspection of the mast chains, hydraulic hoses, cables and stops. Ensure that the overhead and finger guards are attached securely.

LP forklifts have propane tanks that have to be checked for indications of damage, rust or corrosion. Test the battery's charge and electrolyte levels. All belts should be checked for wear. Check to make sure the owner's manual is kept on-board the forklift in a storage compartment. Test the seat belt to make certain the latches are secure. Check the hood latch to ensure it is functioning as it should.

To make sure there are no unusual engine sounds, start the engine up and listen for any irregularities. If there are, investigate promptly. Check the steering controls and the accelerator. The parking break and the service break should be functioning correctly.

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