Inspect a Forklift
Based on HRSDC and OSHA statistics, there are about 10,000 forklift-related worklplace injuries each year within North America. Some injuries are caused by the lack of maintenance of the machine and correct equipment inspection. Other injuries are due to operator error.

Injuries are not the only problems which are related to the operation and maintenance of lift trucks. Another serious concern is damage to property. Forklift accidents could result in damage to overhead pipes, sprinklers, and other machinery and building walls. By completing thorough inspections every day, you can help lessen lift truck injuries.

You must first turn off the engine before inspecting the forklift. Check the levels of the engine oil, fuel, brake fluid, hydraulic oil and coolant. Visually inspect the machine's tires looking for indications of wear, appropriate air pressure and general condition. Visually check the forks on the front of the equipment too. Verify the condition of the heel and top-clip retaining pin. Make certain that the backrest is securely attached. Make sure that both the finger guard and overhead are attached. Visually inspect the stops and cables, the hydraulic hoses and the mast chains as well.

You must check the propane tank if you are using liquid propane of LP forklifts. Look for any indications of corrosion, damage or rust. Be certain that the battery has adequate electrolyte levels and that is charged adequately. Visually check all belts. Check to confirm the location of the owner's manual and make sure it is situated in the designated on-board storage compartment. Confirm the hood latch and confirm that it is functioning as it is supposed to. Check the seatbelt and make certain it latches securely and is functioning properly.

After completing the steps above, turn on the engine. Listen carefully to the engine. Investigate any strange sounds immediately. Make sure that both the parking brake and the service brake are working properly. Confirm that the accelerator and the steering controls are working at optimum performance levels.
