Inspect a Forklift
According to HRSDC and OSHA statistics, there are roughly 10,000 forklift-related worklplace injuries every year in North America. Some injuries result from the lack of maintenance of the machine and proper equipment inspection. Other injuries are because of operator error.

Injuries are not the only problems that are related to the operation and maintenance of lift trucks. Another serious issue is property damage. Lift truck mishaps could lead to damage to sprinklers, overhead pipes, and other machinery and building walls. By completing thorough inspections each and every day, you could help lessen forklift injuries.

When starting an inspection, turn off the engine. Check the levels of the engine oil, fuel, brake fluid, hydraulic oil and coolant. Visually check the tires of the machinery looking for indications of wear, general condition and appropriate air pressure. Visually check the forks on the front of the machine too. Verify the condition of the heel and top-clip retaining pin. Check that the backrest is attached firmly. Confirm that the overhead and finger guards are attached. Visually inspect the stops and cables, the hydraulic hoses and the mast chains as well.

You should check the propane tank if you are using LP or liquid propane forklifts. Check for any indications of rust, corrosion or damage. Be certain that the battery has enough electrolyte levels and that is adequately charged. Visually check 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. Confirm the hood latch and make certain that it is operating as it is supposed to. Inspect the seatbelt and make certain it securely latches and is functioning properly.

After doing the above steps, turn on the engine. Listen carefully to the engine. Investigate any strange sounds right away. Make sure that both the service brake and the parking brake are correctly functioning. Make certain that the accelerator and the steering controls are functioning at optimum performance levels.
