Crown Electric Forklift

Forklift Battery Dangers
Electric lift trucks are the best choice by lots of supply outlets or warehouses which need to move equipment and heavy items out of and into storage. These battery-powered devices could run quietly on big batteries and could lift heavy cargo. Typically, warehouse personnel are responsible for recharging the batteries or swapping them out during a shift. Although these batteries have been designed and developed with safety at the forefront, there are still several issues a user has to know and stuff to be avoided when near the batteries.

Depending upon the model, several forklift batteries can weigh as much as 2000 lbs. or 1 ton, even more. Clearly, these extreme weight factors require mechanical assistance in order to safely charge and change the battery. About 50% of all injuries related to forklift batteries are caused by improper lifting and moving these heavy pieces of equipment. Sometimes jacks, other forklifts or even specialized carts are used so as to transport and move heavy batteries. The overall success of using these pieces of machine depends on how securely the handler affixes the battery to the cart. Unfortunately, serious injuries could happen due to falling batteries.

The industry has strict protocols that describe when and how the lift truck battery will be charged. Nearly all businesses have extensive policies and rules describing the safest method to remove the lift truck battery in a safe and efficient manner.

It is essential to know that forklift batteries are filled with corrosive liquids which require correct safety precautions followed in order to handle them. Two of the most common kinds of forklift batteries include potassium hydroxide and sulfuric acid. These are both very corrosive materials which could cause chemical burns to the skin, hands, eyes and face.
