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

Injuries are not the only issues which are related to the operation and maintenance of lift trucks. One more serious problem is damage to property. Lift truck accidents could cause damage to sprinklers, overhead pipes, and other machinery and building walls. By completing thorough inspections each day, you could help lessen forklift injuries.

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

On LP or liquid propane forklifts, check the propane tank. Check for any indications of corrosion, damage or rust. Be certain that the battery has enough levels of electrolyte and which is sufficiently charged. Visually check all belts. Check to confirm the location of the owner's manual and make certain it is located in the designated on-board storage compartment. Confirm the hood latch and confirm that it is functioning as it is supposed to. Inspect the seatbelt and make sure it latches securely and is functioning properly.

After doing the above steps, turn on the engine. Listen carefully to the engine. Investigate any unusual sounds immediately. Make sure that both the service brake and the parking brake are correctly working. Make certain that the accelerator and the steering controls are operating at optimum performance levels.
