Inspect a Forklift
According to HRSDC and OSHA statistics, there are around ten thousand forklift-related worklplace injuries every year within North America. Several injuries are caused by the lack of correct equipment inspection and maintenance of the machinery. Other injuries are due to operator error.
Injuries are not the only issue related to forklift maintenance and operation. One more serious problem is property damage. Forklift mishaps could result in damage to overhead pipes, sprinklers, and other machinery and building walls. By completing thorough inspections every day, you could help reduce forklift injuries.
You must first turn off the engine prior to checking the forklift. Check the levels of the engine oil, fuel, hydraulic oil, coolant and brake fluid. Visually check the tires of the equipment looking for indications of wear, general condition and appropriate air pressure. Visually check the forks on the front of the machine as well. Verify the condition of the top-clip retaining pin and heel. Make certain that the backrest is attached firmly. Confirm that the finger guard and overhead are attached. Visually inspect the stops and cables, the hydraulic hoses and the mast chains too.
On LP or liquid propane forklifts, inspect the propane tank. Look for any signs of corrosion, damage or rust. Be certain that the battery has adequate electrolyte levels and which is sufficiently charged. Visually inspect all belts. Check to confirm the location of the owner's handbook and make certain it is located in the designated on-board storage compartment. Verify the hood latch and confirm that it is operating as it is supposed to. Check the seatbelt and make sure it is functioning correctly and securely latches.
After completing the steps above, turn the engine on. Carefully listen to the engine. Investigate any strange sounds right away. Check that both the parking brake and the service brake are correctly functioning. Make certain that the accelerator and the steering controls are operating at optimum performance levels.
The forklift is utilized most frequently to keep the flow of operations working as efficiently and smoothly as possible. Though forklifts are a big investment, the injuries they reduce from heavy lifting and the amount of man hours they can save could make the purchase pay for itself in little time.
There are many different units and manufacturers of forklifts on the market. Different units are designed to accomplish various tasks. So as to make certain that you don't purchase more than you require or the wrong kind of machine, it is vital to evaluate the needs of your company and compare to the various models on the market. Talking to a licensed forklift distributor is a very great idea and so is doing your own research on the internet.
When looking at forklifts by fuel type, the following types are available:
Electric: The electric forklift is run by lead-acid based rechargeable batteries. These heavy and large batteries could run a machinery for more than 5 or 6 straight hours. Electric models are best suited for indoor use because of their lack of emissions. They are a popular option for retail spaces and warehouses because they provide a relatively low cost per hour of operation and put zero emissions into the air where people are working.
Internal Combustion: IC forklifts work with a variety of fuels. Some units take compressed natural gas or CNG, others take diesel, liquid propane or LP or gasoline. In comparison to electric forklifts, the internal combustion or IC units could carry heavier loads, are easier to refuel and accelerate faster. These models are typically more expensive to use than their electric counterparts.
Fuel Cell: Hydrogen fuel cell forklifts are the latest in forklift technology. These models provide the zero emissions and quietness of electric forklifts but provide the fast refueling capability of an internal combustion model.
