Forklift Tank Safety
The propane powered lift truck is amongst the most common types of forklifts. These machinery are powered by propane, which come with some considerations that must be accounted for. It is vital that PPE or Personal Protective Equipment is worn at all times to be safe.

Personal Protective Equipment or PPE
Propane gas is very cold. Very cold in fact that contact to your skin can cause severe burns to happen. Whenever you are exchanging the propane tank or re-fueling, be sure to wear thick gloves and a full face shield or goggles. PPE or Personal Protective Equipment is a requirement to be utilized on site so as to keep the driver as safe as possible. PPE is a standard workplace requirement for the majority of businesses utilizing this kind of machine and if the operator does not have the right things on, like for example steel-toe boots, a hardhat, goggles and so on than she or he might be forbidden from using the machine.

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

Fire Extinguisher
Another essential safety measure to have implemented is to have a fire extinguisher close by when fuel is being added or when the tank is being changed. The majority of companies have fire extinguishers situated next to the refueling post. It is better to have one nearby and not require it, than to need one and not have one nearby. Most safety regulations need this is set up on location as well.

Secure the Tank
The majority of propane tanks are strapped securely into place by some type of strap or restraining device. Be sure that this device is correctly working and utilized properly so that you could prevent the tank from shifting or falling, as this could also result in a dangerous situation.
