Warehouse Forklift Maintenance
Forklifts need a proper maintenance program to help increase the equipments lifespan and is an important factor in allowing the machine to function safely and effectively. Completing forklift check ups on a regular basis and performing preventive maintenance on a regular basis will help to ensure the safe and efficient operation of the machine.
The daily checklist is an invaluable tool in any forklift maintenance program. These checklists would help to document any and all possible problems. They are required by the OSHA or the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. The daily checklists could also be audited by OSHA during any routine inspection. Drivers have to complete the inspection from the start of their shift. If any major issues are found, the forklift can not be utilized until the problem has been fixed.
Safety and Maintenance Go Hand-in-Hand
Each and every year around 100 people are injured in forklift accidents in the United States. Statistics show that approximately 20,000 individuals would be seriously injured because of a forklift mishap. This number translates to represent 54 people per day, 7 days a week, for the whole year. A lot of these accidents can be prevented easily if the forklift had been correctly maintained and serviced. In several circumstances, it might seem like a cost savings to skip or delay regular maintenance, although, these savings would pale in comparison to the cost of a single accident.
Things to be Serviced
In the owner's handbook of every equipment, the manufacturer will include a maintenance schedule. These schedules will differ greatly, depending on the manufacturer and the type of machine. Each schedule will contain a variety of basic things. For instance, in a combustion engine, the oil filters and the engine oil should be periodically replaced. Hydraulic levels would have to be inspected also. Be certain to check hoses for any indications of cracking. Additional items involve the transmission, the electrical systems and the brakes of the forklift.
