Inspect a Forklift
Workplace injuries related to forklift usage in North America average around more than 10,000 every year, according to the statistics from OSHA and the HRSDC. Several injuries are caused by the lack of proper equipment inspection and maintenance of the machine. Other injuries are because of operator error.
Injuries are not the only concern related to forklift maintenance and operation. Another serious issue is damage to property. Lift truck accidents could result in damage to sprinklers, overhead pipes, and other equipment as well as building walls. By completing thorough inspections each day, you can help lessen forklift injuries.
You should first turn the engine off prior to checking the forklift. Check the levels of the fuel, engine oil, coolant, brake fluid and hydraulic oil. Visually inspect the tires of the machine looking for indications of wear, general condition and appropriate air pressure. Visually check the forks on the front of the machinery as well. Confirm the condition of the top-clip retaining pin and heel. Make certain that the backrest is attached securely. Make certain that both the finger guard and overhead are attached. Visually inspect the cables and stops, the hydraulic hoses and the mast chains too.
You should inspect the propane tank if you are utilizing liquid propane of LP forklifts. Look for any signs of rust, corrosion or damage. Be certain that the battery has enough levels of electrolyte and that is sufficiently charged. Visually inspect all belts. Check to verify the location of the owner's instruction manual and make sure it is situated in the designated on-board storage compartment. Confirm the hood latch and make certain that it is functioning as it is supposed to. Check the seatbelt and make sure it is functioning properly and latches securely.
After completing the steps above, turn the engine on. Listen carefully to the engine. Investigate any strange sounds immediately. Check that both the service brake and the parking brake are correctly functioning. Confirm that the accelerator and the steering controls are functioning at optimum performance levels.
