Solid Lift Truck Tire Safety
More than 200 deaths each and every year in North America are a result of lift trucks, or forklifts. Correct inspection and maintenance of lift truck tires could help to reduce the risk of accidents.

Pre-Work Inspection
Before the start of each shift, the tires on the lift truck should be inspected for indications of wear and damage. The air pressure inside the tires must be inspected to make sure that the pressure is not very low. Low tire pressure could make the machinery prone to tip-overs while lifting loads.

Kinds of Tires
The choice of tire type should be based on the kind of surface wherein the lift truck would be operating. For indoor use, lift trucks with solid rubber tires are best. For surfaces which are smooth, tires are normally smaller. Bigger pneumatic tires are great for lift trucks for outdoor use. Pneumatic tires are able to grip rough surfaces well as they have rubber tread and are air-filled.

Other factors
According to Occupational Health and Safety Administration guidelines, all lift trucks require some periodic and some continual daily checks that is performed each shift. The tires must be checked again for any indication of damage, like cuts or wear.

Lift truck Safety
If you or your employees are going to be using forklifts, proper training in forklift safety is vital. Lift truck accidents can result in serious personal injuries or death and cause unmanageable financial hardship. Even minor mishaps can cost you and your company money if the goods or the forklift are damaged in an accident. Be certain you really know a lot concerning problems involved in forklift safety.
