Lift Truck Tank Safety
The propane powered forklift is amongst the most common types of lift trucks. These machines are powered by propane, which come with some considerations which should be accounted for. It is vital that PPE or also known as Personal Protective Equipment is worn at all times in order to be safe.

PPE
Propane gas is really cold. Very cold in fact that contact to your skin can cause severe burns to happen. Whenever you are re-fueling or exchanging the propane tank, be sure to wear thick gloves and goggles or a full face shield. PPE is a requirement to be used on location so as to keep the driver as safe as possible. PPE is a standard workplace requirement for the majority of companies using this kind of machine and if the operator does not have the correct things on, such as steel-toe boots, a hardhat, goggles and all that than she or he might be prohibited from using the machine.

Inspect the Valve
If you are in the process of exchanging the tank, be sure that the valve on the new tank is absolutely turned off prior to connecting the fuel line. This is extremely essential because when you are inserting the fuel line into an open valve, you would release the propane gas. This condition can result in a potentially dangerous condition.

Fire Extinguisher
Having a fire extinguisher on hand during the time the tank is being changed out or when re-fueling is occurring is another vital safety measure to have implemented. Nearly all businesses have fire extinguishers located near the refueling post. It is better to have one nearby and not need it, than to need one and not have one handy. Nearly all safety regulations need this is set up on site as well.

Secure the Tank
The majority of propane tanks have either a restraining device or a strap to secure the tank to the machine. Be certain that this device is correctly working and correctly utilized so that you can prevent the tank from shifting or falling, as this can also result in a hazardous condition.
