Inspect a Forklift
According to OSHA and HRSDC statistics, there are roughly 10,000 forklift-related worklplace injuries every year in North America. Some injuries result from the lack of maintenance of the machine and proper equipment inspection. Other injuries are because of operator error.

Injuries are not the only issue related to forklift operation and maintenance. One more serious concern is damage to property. Forklift accidents can result in damage to sprinklers, overhead pipes, and other machinery and building walls. By completing thorough inspections each day, you can help reduce forklift injuries.

You should first turn the engine off before checking the forklift. Check the levels of the engine oil, fuel, hydraulic oil, coolant and brake fluid. Visually check the machine's tires looking for indications of wear, appropriate air pressure and general condition. Visually check the forks on the front of the equipment as well. Confirm the condition of the heel and top-clip retaining pin. Check that the backrest is securely attached. Confirm that both the finger guard and overhead are attached. Visually inspect the cables and stops, the mast chains and the hydraulic hoses as well.

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

After doing the above steps, turn on the engine. Listen carefully to the engine. Investigate any unusual sounds immediately. Make certain that both the service brake and the parking brake are functioning properly. Make certain that the steering controls and the accelerator are working at optimum performance levels.
