Propane Motor Fuel & Forklift Safety
Forklifts powered by propane are in wide use across numerous industries. Propane lift trucks are normally found in distribution centers and warehouses performing a wide variety of industrial and commercial applications. Propane fuel has several unique factors when used in a workplace. It is vital to always follow safety measures and practices when using this equipment.
Lift trucks are powered electrically, with gasoline, diesel or with propane. Propane powered lift trucks are the most commonly purchased and used equipment. There are some reasons for this. Propane is a clean-burning fuel, that means it generates a lot less engine exhaust compared to gasoline and diesel. Regardless of the type of fuel being used to operate the forklift, smoking should be avoided when operating and the unit must not be utilized near an open flame. The propane is usually stored in a fuel tank, which should be changed out when empty. It is essential for the operator to make sure that the tank is securely fastened in place prior to starting the engine.
Propane is a cold liquid which can burn the skin if it comes in contact with it. Following safety precautions is important when the tank is being changed out or when the unit is being refueled . Smoking is prohibited in the fueling area. Fueling must never be performed near an open flame or ignition source. The driver should wear personal protective equipment when fueling or changing the tank. Full eye protection is very important. Thick gloves have to be worn in order to protect the skin from exposure to propane.
