TCM Propane Forklifts

Forklift Tank Safety
The propane powered forklift is amongst the most popular kinds of lift trucks offered on the market nowadays. When utilizing a propane forklift, there are some factors about the fuel tank and the fuel source to think about. For instance, it is very essential that all PPE or Personal Protective Equipment is worn each time an operator is on the machinery and in many areas, on the jobsite.

Propane gas is fairly cold and could result in severe burns to the skin if exposed, no matter how minor the exposure. Thus, it is a requirement that whenever you are exchanging the propane tank or completing a re-fueling process safety goggles or a full face shield and thick gloves must be worn for protection. Numerous workplaces need steel-toe boots to be worn as well when carrying heavy objects is part of your responsibility. Each and every workplace has different rules set in place which pertain to the specific needs of the company. Your supervisor would inform you of what types of PPE objects should be worn prior to your shift starts.

No Smoking
Due to the high flammability factor, there can absolutely be no open flames or any type of smoking going on in the re-fueling zone. Propane gas is very ignitable and it is very vital that it is never exposed to any type of ignition source or a very dangerous exploding situation will unfold.

Check the Valve
Make sure that the valve on the new tank is turned off before connecting the fuel line when exchanging the fuel tank. If you accidentally insert the fuel line into an open valve, propane gas would be released. Overlooking this factor could potentially result in a really terrible situation.

Fire Extinguisher
Whenever the tank is being changed out or during the re-fueling process, a fire extinguisher should be made available. The majority of companies require that a fire extinguisher be mounted on every lift truck. This is an essential safety rule that has to be made a priority in the workplace.

Secure the Tank
Most propane tanks would utilize a restraining device like a strap or bracket to keep the tank stable. Be sure that this security feature is working properly because it is being used for the important task to stop the tank from shifting or falling. A faulty restraining condition can lead to the tank falling or coming loose or rolling around dangerous.
