Inspect a Forklift
OSHA and HRSDC report that over 10,000 workplace injuries related to fork lifts occur each year. Driver error is the reason for many of these mishaps. Lack of appropriate equipment inspection and maintenance causes numerous others. Forklift maintenance and operation is not only the reason for personal injuries, but also of damage to property. Forklifts can damage building structures, overhead pipes and sprinklers, and other machinery when improperly operated. The following daily inspections should be performed in order to reduce the chance of forklift mishaps.

Before checking various fluid levels turn off the engine. Inspect these fluids: fuel, engine oil, hydraulic oil, brake fluid and coolant. The tires also have to be inspected for signs of wear and tear. Check the air pressure in the tires. Check the condition of the forks. The load backrest need to be firmly attached. Do a visual check of the top-clip retaining pin and heel. Next perform an inspection of the hydraulic hoses, mast chains, stops and cables. Make certain that both the finger and overhead guards are firmly attached.

The LP powered forklift has propane tanks that need to be inspected for corrosion, damage or rust. The battery's electrolyte levels and charge have to be tested periodically. Seat belts have to be inspected for wear and tear. Check to make certain the owner's manual is stored on-board the forklift inside a storage compartment. Test the seat belt to make certain the latches are secure. Check the hood latch to make sure that it is working as it should.

Start the forklift and listen to the engine noise to make certain there are no unusual sounds. If there are, investigate promptly. Check the accelerator and the steering controls. The service brake and the parking break must be functioning correctly.

To guarantee proper functioning in both forward and reverse, the drive control and tilt control must be checked. The functioning of the lowering control, the hoist and attachment control requires periodic checking. Check the lights and horn. Afterward check the heater, defroster and wipers to make sure they are working smoothly. Inspect each gauge to ascertain that it is reading within functional limits.
