Inspect a Forklift
Workplace injuries related to forklift operation in North America average about over 10,000 every year, based on the statistics from the HRSDC and OSHA. Several injuries are caused by the lack of proper equipment inspection and maintenance of the machine. Other injuries are because of operator error.

Injuries are not the only problems which are related to the maintenance and operation of forklifts. Another serious concern is property damage. Lift truck mishaps can result in damage to overhead pipes, sprinklers, and other equipment as well as building walls. By completing thorough inspections each and every day, you can help lessen lift truck injuries.

You must first turn the engine off 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, general condition and appropriate air pressure. Visually inspect the forks on the front of the machine as well. Verify the condition of the heel and top-clip retaining pin. Check that the backrest is attached firmly. Make certain that the overhead and finger guards are attached. Visually check the cables and stops, the hydraulic hoses and the mast chains as well.

On LP or liquid propane forklifts, check the propane tank. Check for any indications of corrosion, damage or rust. Be sure that the battery has adequate electrolyte levels and which is charged sufficiently. Visually check all belts. Check to confirm the location of the owner's instruction manual and make certain it is situated in the designated on-board storage compartment. Confirm the hood latch and make certain that it is functioning as it is supposed to. Inspect the seatbelt and make sure it latches securely and is working correctly.

After completing the above steps, turn on the engine. Carefully listen to the engine. Investigate any unusual sounds right away. Check that both the parking brake and the service brake are working correctly. Confirm that the steering controls and the accelerator are working at optimum performance levels.
