Fuel Storage
In order to be secure, the smaller fuel canisters or the big refueling tank has to be stored away from the main building or complex. Adding to the safety aspect, it is necessary that "No Smoking" signs are prominently displayed in the area. Ideally, the fuel tanks should be stored in a safe enclosure which can only be accessible by authorized employees. It is vital for the safety of the operator, as well as everybody they work with, that these safety regulations are strictly complied with.

To be protected from vehicle impact, the fuel enclosure itself needs to be protected. This task can use retraining systems like concrete bumpers. Other retaining methods could be utilized. It is also necessary to always have a fire extinguisher nearby at the refueling station. Furthermore, anybody who is operating the fueling station should be trained and also needs to be trained to safely and effectively utilize the fire extinguisher. With regards to the fuel aspect, safety is of utmost importance.

Operator Training
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration or OSHA require that everyone who is utilizing an industrial powered forklift or lift truck is trained correctly. This training includes both the hands-on training and the classroom portion. Once completing the training session, the individual should be tested in order to show that they understand the training materials. A part of this training also covers the proper way of the refueling process of the lift truck. The training also involves precautions involved for the refueling of any unit they could be driving and site-specific procedures.

Medical Treatment
MSDS or Material Safety Data Sheets must be located in all facilities where lift trucks are operating. This center will include the MSDSs for all solvents and chemicals which are utilized on site. This will also include the propane which is utilized to refuel the unit, along with the acid in the lift truck battery.

The MSDSs sheets are required to be available to all personnel all the time. For example, if an exposure incident happens, the individual has to be evaluated immediately. If any medical attention is needed, to must 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 medical professional if you fear it is severe. Better to be safe than sorry.
