Inspect a Forklift
There are over 10,000 workplace injuries related to forklifts happen each year, according to OSHA and HRSDC reports. A lot of these accidents are caused by operator error. Lack of appropriate equipment maintenance and inspection results in numerous others. Operation and maintenance of a forklift is not just the reason for personal injuries, but also of damage to property. Forklifts can damage sprinklers, building structures and overhead pipes, and other machinery when used wrongly. The following day by day inspections must be carried out so as to reduce the possibility of forklift accidents.

Prior to checking various fluid levels turn off the engine. Inspect these fluids: hydraulic oil, fuel, engine oil, coolant and brake fluid. The tires also need to be checked for indications of wear and tear. Check the air pressure in the tires. Check the condition of the forks. The load backrest must be attached tightly. Do a visual check of the top-clip retaining heel and pin. Then perform an inspection of the mast chains, hydraulic hoses, stops and cables. Make certain that the finger and overhead guards are attached firmly.

The LP fueled forklift has propane tanks that need to be inspected for rust, corrosion or damage. The battery's charge and electrolyte levels have to be tested periodically. Seat belts have to be checked for wear and tear. Check to make certain the owner's instruction manual is kept on-board the forklift in a storage compartment. Test the seat belt to make sure the latches are secure. Check the hood latch to make sure that it is functioning as it should.

To make certain there are no unusual engine sounds, start the engine up and listen for any irregularities. If there are, investigate immediately. Test the accelerator and the steering controls. The service brake and the parking break should be functioning correctly.

The tilt control and drive control should be inspected to ensure proper functioning in both forward and reverse. Test the functioning of the lowering control and hoist, and the attachment control. Check the lights and horn. After that check the heater, defroster and wipers to make sure they are working smoothly. Inspect each gauge to find out that it is reading within functional limits.
