Inspect a Forklift
Workplace injuries related to forklift usage within North America average roughly more than 10,000 every year, according to the statistics from OSHA and the HRSDC. Several injuries are caused by the lack of maintenance of the machine and proper equipment inspection. Other injuries are caused by operator error.
Injuries are not the only concern related to forklift maintenance and operation. One more serious concern is damage to property. Forklift mishaps could cause damage to overhead pipes, sprinklers, and other equipment as well as building walls. By completing thorough inspections each and every day, you could help reduce lift truck injuries.
When starting an inspection, turn the engine off. Check the levels of the fuel, engine oil, hydraulic oil, coolant and brake fluid. Visually inspect the tires of the machine looking for indications of wear, appropriate air pressure and general condition. Visually inspect the forks on the front of the equipment as well. Confirm the condition of the heel and top-clip retaining pin. Make certain that the backrest is attached firmly. Make certain that both the finger guard and overhead are attached. Visually inspect the stops and cables, the hydraulic hoses and the mast chains as well.
On LP or liquid propane forklifts, inspect the propane tank. Check for any signs of rust, corrosion or damage. Be sure that the battery has adequate levels of electrolyte and that is sufficiently charged. Visually inspect 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. Verify the hood latch and make certain that it is functioning as it is supposed to. Check the seatbelt and make sure it is working properly and latches securely.
You could turn on the engine after you have done all the steps mentioned above. Carefully listen to the engine. Investigate any strange sounds immediately. Check that both the service brake and the parking brake are correctly functioning. Make certain that the accelerator and the steering controls are working at optimum performance levels.
