Forklift Tank Safety
The propane powered forklift is one of the most popular kinds of lift trucks available on the market nowadays. When using a propane lift truck, there are several factors about the fuel tank and the fuel source to think about. Like for instance, it is really vital that all Personal Protective Equipment or PPE is worn each and every time an operator is on the machinery and in numerous places, on the jobsite.

PPE
Propane gas is fairly cold and could result in serious burns to the skin if exposed, no matter how minor the exposure. Thus, it is a requirement that when you are completing a re-fueling process or exchanging the propane tank a full face shield or safety goggles and thick gloves must be worn for protection. Many workplaces require steel-toe boots to be worn as well when lifting heavy things is part of your task. Each workplace has various rules set in place which pertain to the company's particular requirements. Your supervisor will inform you of what PPE things need to be worn before your starting your shift.

No Smoking
Due to the high flammability factor, there could absolutely be no open fire or any kind of smoking going on in the re-fueling zone. Propane gas is highly ignitable and it is vital that it is never exposed to any type of ignition source or an extremely dangerous exploding situation will unfold.

Check the Valve
Before connecting the fuel line during a tank exchange, make certain that the valve on the new tank is turned off. If you accidentally insert the fuel line into an open valve, propane gas will be released. Overlooking this factor can potentially lead to a very catastrophic situation.

Fire Extinguisher
When the tank is being changed out or during the re-fueling process, a fire extinguisher must be made accessible. Nearly all companies require that a fire extinguisher be mounted on every lift truck. This is an essential safety rule which has to be made a priority in the workplace.

Secure the Tank
The majority of propane tanks use a restraining device such as a strap to keep them stable. Be sure that this security feature is properly functioning since it is being used for the vital task to stop the tank from falling or shifting. A faulty restraining situation could lead to the tank falling or coming loose or rolling around dangerous.
