Forklift Tank Safety
One of the most common kinds of forklifts available is a propane-powered model. The propane is utilized to fuel these machinery and it has some properties that have to be considered when working with the fuel tank. It is very important that Personal Protective Equipment or also called PPE is worn all the time so as to be safe.

Propane gas is very cold. So cold in fact that contact to your skin can cause serious burns to happen. Whenever you are re-fueling or exchanging the propane tank, be certain to put on goggles or a full face shield and thick gloves. PPE is a requirement to be utilized on site in order to keep the operator as safe as possible. Personal Protective Equipment or PPE is a standard workplace requirement for the majority of companies using this type of machine and if the operator does not have the correct items on, like a hardhat, safety goggles, steel-toe boots etc. than she or he might be forbidden from using the machinery.

Check the Valve
If you are in the process of exchanging the tank, be certain that the valve on the new tank is absolutely turned off prior to connecting the fuel line. This is extremely vital because when you are inserting the fuel line into an open valve, you would release the propane gas. This condition could lead to a potentially dangerous condition.

Fire Extinguisher
Another vital safety procedure to have implemented is to have a fire extinguisher nearby when the tank is being changed or fuel is being added. Nearly all companies have fire extinguishers located near the refueling post. It is better to have one close and not need it, than to require one and not have one handy. The majority of safety rules need this is set up on site too.

Secure the Tank
Most propane tanks are strapped firmly into place by some type of restraining device or strap. Be certain that this device is working properly and used properly so that you can prevent the tank from falling or shifting, because this could also result in a dangerous situation.
