Hazards of Type-G lift trucks
Forklifts carry out an important role in the operations of warehouses and other businesses. These machinery are capable of raising and transporting huge loads from one location to another. There are several variations on the lift truck. The primary variation is the way in which various kinds of forklifts are fueled. "LP" forklifts are the most popular type. They utilize liquid propane. Type "E" forklifts run on electricity and have large rechargeable batteries. Type "D" lift trucks are fueled by diesel and type "G" utilize gasoline. While all types of forklifts, like any piece of heavy machine, could pose a danger, gasoline powered forklifts pose the most risks.

Fire
Type G lift trucks could present a fire hazard. Gasoline-fueled lift trucks are not held to rigorous standards in reducing lessening fire hazards. The biggest cause of fire is due to gasoline leaks that allow gasoline fumes to escape. This could result driving on extremely rough terrain and from normal wear or from mishaps. These circumstances pose a risk and can cause fire. Thus, a typical Type G lift truck should never be utilized in conditions where elevated fire risk is deemed not acceptable. For instance, these types of forklifts must not be used around explosives or hazardous chemicals.

Explosion
Type G lift trucks also pose a danger of explosion, as do those which operate on diesel and liquid propane. A gasoline powered forklift can explode as a result of a serious mishap in circumstances where an ignition source and a gasoline leak are present. An explosion could take place when sparks are created in the collision and the sparks ignite the gasoline.

Fumes and Exhaust
Type G lift trucks pose a serious inhalation hazard due to toxic fumes. Gasoline fumes could be deadly in high concentrations. Fumes could result from the exhaust itself or from gasoline leaks. Therefore, a Type G forklift is not recommended for any environment which is poorly ventilated. The exhaust would present a serious hazard in enclosed places. This kind of forklift should be utilized with caution when operated near people.
