Inspect a Forklift
Based on HRSDC and OSHA statistics, there are around 10,000 forklift-related worklplace injuries each year within North America. Several injuries result from the lack of maintenance of the machinery and correct equipment inspection. Other injuries are caused by operator error.

Injuries are not the only problems which are related to the operation and maintenance of forklifts. Another serious concern is damage to property. Forklift accidents can cause damage to overhead pipes, sprinklers, and other machinery and building walls. By completing thorough inspections on a daily basis, you can help reduce lift truck injuries.

When starting an inspection, turn the engine off. Check the levels of the engine oil, fuel, coolant, brake fluid and hydraulic oil. Visually check the tires of the machine looking for indications of wear, correct air pressure and general condition. Visually inspect the forks on the front of the equipment too. Confirm the condition of the top-clip retaining pin and heel. Make sure that the backrest is attached firmly. Make certain that both the finger guard and overhead are attached. Visually check the cables and stops, the hydraulic hoses and the mast chains too.

On LP or liquid propane forklifts, check the propane tank. Look for any signs of rust, corrosion or damage. Be certain that the battery has enough electrolyte levels and which is charged sufficiently. Visually inspect all belts. Check to confirm the location of the owner's manual and make certain it is located in the designated on-board storage compartment. Confirm the hood latch and make certain that it is functioning as it is supposed to. Check the seatbelt and make sure it securely latches and is functioning correctly.

After doing the above steps, turn on the engine. Carefully listen to the engine. Investigate any strange sounds immediately. Check that both the parking brake and the service brake are correctly functioning. Make certain that the accelerator and the steering controls are working at optimum performance levels.
