Lift Truck Tank Safety
The propane powered lift truck is among the most common types of forklifts. These machines are powered by propane, that come with some considerations that must be accounted for. It is very essential that Personal Protective Equipment or PPE is worn at all times to be safe.

PPE
Propane gas is really cold. Very cold in fact that contact to your skin could cause serious burns to happen. Whenever you are exchanging the propane tank or re-fueling, be certain to wear a full face shield or goggles and thick gloves. PPE is a requirement to be utilized on location in order to keep the driver as safe as possible. Personal Protective Equipment or PPE is a standard workplace requirement for the majority of businesses using this equipment and if the driver does not have the correct items on, like for example a hardhat, safety goggles, steel-toe boots and that than she or he would be prohibited from operating the equipment.

Inspect the Valve
Before connecting the fuel line in the process of exchanging the tank, make sure that the new tanks valve is turned off. This is really vital because when you are inserting the fuel line into an open valve, you would release the propane gas. This condition can lead to a potentially hazardous condition.

Fire Extinguisher
One more important safety procedure to have implemented is to have a fire extinguisher nearby when fuel is being added or when the tank is being changed. Most businesses have fire extinguishers situated next to the refueling station. It is better to have one nearby and not need it, than to need one and not have one handy. Most safety rules need this is set up on site too.

Secure the Tank
Most propane tanks are strapped firmly into place by some kind of restraining device or strap. Be certain that this device is properly working and utilized correctly so that you could prevent the tank from shifting or falling, since this could also result in a hazardous situation.
