Inspect a Forklift
HRSDC and OSHA report that more than 10,000 workplace injuries related to fork lifts take place every year. Driver error is the reason for many of these mishaps. Lack of proper equipment maintenance and check results in numerous others. Maintenance and operation of a forklift is not just the reason for personal injuries, but also of damage to property. Forklifts can damage overhead pipes, sprinklers and building structures, and other equipment when operated improperly. The following day by day check ups must be done in order to lessen the possibility of forklift mishaps.

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

The LP powered forklift has propane tanks which need to be checked for corrosion, damage or rust. The battery's charge and electrolyte levels need to be tested periodically. Seat belts have to be checked for wear and tear. Check to make sure the owner's manual is stored on-board the forklift in a storage compartment. Check the seat belt to make sure the latches are secure. Check the hood latch to make certain that 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 immediately. Test the accelerator and the steering controls. The service brake and the parking break must be correctly working.

To ensure proper functioning in both forward and reverse, the tilt control and drive control must be inspected. The functioning of the lowering control, the hoist and attachment control needs periodic inspection. Test the horn and lights. Afterward check the wipers, heater and defroster to make certain they are working well. Check each and every gauge to find out that it is reading within functional limits.
