Forklift Tank Safety
One of the most popular kinds of forklifts offered on the market nowadays is a propane-powered forklift. The propane utilized to fuel these equipment has several properties that should be taken into account when working with the fuel tank. For instance, it is important that all Personal Protective Equipment or PPE is worn each time a driver is on the machinery and in a lot of places, on the jobsite.

PPE
Since propane gas is extremely frigid, any exposure to your skin, no matter how minor, can lead to serious burns. Hence, it is a requirement that whenever you are completing a re-fueling process or exchanging the propane tank a complete face shield or safety goggles and thick gloves need to be worn for protection. Lots of workplaces need steel-toe boots to be worn also when carrying heavy objects is part of your job. Each and every workplace has different regulations set in place that pertain to the specific requirements of the business. Your supervisor would inform you of what PPE things should be worn before your first shift.

No Smoking
Because of the high flammability factor, there could definitely be no open flames or any kind of smoking going on in the re-fueling zone. Propane gas is very flammable and it is really vital that it is never exposed to any type of ignition source or a very dangerous exploding situation will unfold.

Check the Valve
Prior to connecting the fuel line during a tank exchange, make sure that the valve on the new tank is turned off. If you inadvertently insert the fuel line into an open valve, you would release the propane gas. Neglecting this factor can potentially create a really catastrophic situation.

Fire Extinguisher
Whenever the tank is being changed out or during the re-fueling process, a fire extinguisher must be made available. The majority of companies require that a fire extinguisher be mounted on every lift truck. This is an essential safety rule which has to be made a priority within the workplace.

Secure the Tank
Most propane tanks utilize a restraining device like a strap to keep them stable. Be sure that this security feature is functioning correctly because it is being used for the important task to stop the tank from shifting or falling. A faulty restraining situation could lead to the tank falling or coming loose or rolling around dangerous.
