Fuel Storage
In order to be secure, the smaller fuel canisters or the large refueling tank has to be stored away from the main complex or building. Adding to the safety aspect, it is vital that "No Smoking" signs are prominently displayed in the vicinity. Ideally, the fuel tanks must be stored in a safe enclosure which could just be accessible by authorized employees. It is important for the operator's safety, and everybody they work with, that these safety measures are strictly followed.

To be protected from vehicle impact, the fuel enclosure itself needs to be protected. This task could utilize retraining systems such as concrete bumpers. Other retaining methods could be used. It is also vital to have a fire extinguisher present at the refueling station. In addition, anybody who is operating the fueling station is required to be trained and also must be trained to effectively and safely operate the fire extinguisher. With regards to the fuel aspect, safety is of utmost importance.

Operator Training
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration requires that all operators using a lift truck should be correctly trained. This training includes a classroom portion as well as hands-on training. As soon as the training sessions have been completed, the individual must be tested in order to prove that they understand the training materials. A part of this training also includes the correct method of the refueling process of the lift truck. The training also includes precautions involved for the refueling of any unit they could be driving as well as site-specific procedures.

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

MSDSs sheets have to be available for all employees at all times. If any exposure incident occurs for instance, the person needs to be evaluated at once. If any medical attention is considered necessary, to should be given without any delay. Usually, if you are uncertain if medical treatment is required, as a general rule; have the injury examined by a doctor if you fear it is severe. Better to be safe than sorry.
