Inspect a Forklift
Workplace injuries related to forklift usage in North America average around more than 10,000 each year, based on the statistics from OSHA and the HRSDC. Some injuries result from the lack of maintenance of the machine and correct equipment inspection. Other injuries are caused by operator error.
Injuries are not the only problem related to forklift maintenance and operation. Another serious issue is property damage. Lift truck mishaps could lead to damage to sprinklers, overhead pipes, and other equipment as well as building walls. By completing thorough inspections each and every day, you can help lessen lift truck injuries.
When starting an inspection, turn off the engine. Check the levels of the engine oil, fuel, coolant, brake fluid and hydraulic oil. Visually inspect the machine's tires looking for signs of wear, correct air pressure and general condition. Visually inspect the forks on the front of the machinery too. Confirm the condition of the heel and top-clip retaining pin. Make certain that the backrest is securely attached. Confirm that both the finger guard and overhead are attached. Visually check the cables and stops, the mast chains and the hydraulic hoses too.
On liquid propane or LP forklifts, check the propane tank. Check for any signs of rust, corrosion or damage. Be certain that the battery has adequate levels of electrolyte and that is adequately charged. Visually inspect all belts. Check to confirm the location of the owner's handbook and make certain it is situated in the designated on-board storage compartment. Verify the hood latch and make certain that it is functioning as it is supposed to. Check the seatbelt and make certain it securely latches and is working properly.
You can turn the engine on after you have completed all the steps mentioned above. Carefully listen to the engine. Investigate any unusual sounds right away. Make sure that both the parking brake and the service brake are working properly. Make certain that the steering controls and the accelerator are operating at optimum performance levels.
