Fuel Storage
The smaller fuel canisters and larger refueling tanks should be stored in a different complex or building so as to be more safe. To add more safety, all areas in the vicinity should have "No Smoking" signs are prominently displayed. Ideally, the fuel tanks should be stored in a secure enclosure which can only be accessed by authorized personnel. It is essential for the operator's safety, and everyone they work with, that these safety measures are strictly followed.

The fuel enclosure itself has to be protected from vehicle impact. Utilizing retaining systems like concrete bumpers for example, can accomplish this task. Other retaining methods could be utilized. It is also important to have a fire extinguisher available at the refueling station. In addition, anybody who is operating the fueling station should be trained and also should be trained to use the fire extinguisher effectively and safely. When it comes to the fuel aspect, safety is of utmost importance.

Operator Training
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration requires that all operators using a lift truck must be correctly trained. This training covers a classroom part as well as hands-on training. As soon as the training sessions have been finished, the individual needs to be tested to be able to prove that they understand the training materials. A portion of this training also covers the correct way of the refueling process of the forklift. The training also includes site-specific procedures as well as the precautions involved for the refueling of any unit they could be driving.

Medical Treatment
There must be a Material Safety Data Sheet or MSDS center situated within the facility where the forklift is operating. This center would include the MSDSs for all solvents and chemicals that are utilized on site. This will also include the propane that is utilized to refuel the unit, together with the acid in the forklift battery.

The MSDSs sheets are required to be available to all workers all the time. For instance, if an exposure incident happens, the individual has to be evaluated right away. If any medical attention is required, to must be given without any delay. Generally, if you are uncertain if medical care is needed, as a general rule; have the injury examined by a doctor if you fear it is severe. Better to be safe than sorry.
