Fuel Storage
The smaller fuel canisters and larger refueling tanks should be stored in a different building or complex in order to be more secure. To add more safety, all areas in the vicinity should have "No Smoking" signs are clearly displayed. Ideally, the fuel tanks should be stored in a secure enclosure that could only be accessible by authorized employees. It is important for the operator's safety, as well as everyone they work with, that these safety measures are strictly complied with.

The fuel enclosure itself needs to be protected from vehicle impact. Using retaining systems like concrete bumpers for example, could carry out this task. Other retaining methods could be used. It is also necessary to always have a fire extinguisher available at the refueling station. In addition, anyone who is operating the fueling station should be trained and also must be trained to operate the fire extinguisher effectively and safely. When it comes to the fuel aspect, safety is of utmost importance.

Operator Training
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration requires that all operators using a forklift should be properly trained. This training covers a classroom portion in addition to hands-on training. After completing the training session, the individual needs to be tested to be able to prove that they understand the training materials. A part of this training also covers the proper method of the refueling process of the forklift. The training also involves precautions involved for the refueling of any unit they could be driving and site-specific procedures.

Medical Treatment
Material Safety Data Sheet or MSDS must be located in all facilities where lift trucks are operating. This center will include the MSDSs for all solvents and chemicals which are used on site. This will also cover the propane which is utilized to refuel the unit, together with the acid in the forklift battery.

MSDSs sheets need to be available for all workers all the time. If any exposure incident occurs for example, the person needs to be evaluated right away. If any medical attention is required, to must be given without any delay. Normally, if you are not sure if medical care is required, as a general rule; have the injury examined by a doctor if you truly believe it is severe. Better to be safe than sorry.
