Inspect a Forklift
HRSDC and OSHA report that over 10,000 workplace injuries related to fork lifts happen every year. Driver error is the cause of many of these mishaps. Lack of proper equipment check and maintenance causes many others. Operation and maintenance of a forklift is not just the reason for personal injuries, but also of property damage. Forklifts could damage building structures, overhead pipes and sprinklers, and other machinery when utilized incorrectly. The following daily check ups should be performed in order to lessen the likelihood of forklift accidents.
Turn the engine off before inspecting various fluid levels: engine oil, fuel, coolant, brake fluid and hydraulic oil. The tires must be checked for signs of wear and tear. Check the tire air pressure. Check the forks' condition. The load backrest have to be attached tightly. Do a visual check of the top-clip retaining pin and heel. After that carry out an inspection of the hydraulic hoses, mast chains, stops and cables. Ensure that the overhead and finger guards are securely attached.
The LP fueled forklift has propane tanks which have to be checked for corrosion, damage or rust. The battery's electrolyte levels and charge need to be tested periodically. Seat belts have to be checked for wear and tear. Check to make sure the owner's handbook is stored on-board the forklift inside a storage compartment. Check the seat belt to make certain the latches are secure. Test the hood latch to ensure it is working as it should.
Start the forklift and listen to the engine noise to make certain there are no unusual sounds. If there are, investigate promptly. Test the steering controls and the accelerator. The parking break and the service break should be correctly functioning.
The drive control and tilt control must be inspected to ensure proper functioning in both forward and reverse. Test the functioning of the lowering control and hoist, and the attachment control. Test the lights and horn. Then check the wipers, heater and defroster to make sure they are functioning well. Inspect each gauge to find out that it is reading within functional limits.
