Fuel Storage
In order to be secure, the smaller fuel canisters or the large refueling tank needs 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 that can only be accessed by authorized personnel. It is vital for the safety of the operator, and everyone they work with, that these safety regulations are strictly followed.

To be protected from vehicle impact, the fuel enclosure itself needs to be protected. This job can utilize retraining systems such as concrete bumpers. Other retaining methods can be used. It is also necessary to always have a fire extinguisher available at the refueling station. Moreover, anyone who is operating the fueling station is required to be trained and also must be trained to utilize the fire extinguisher safely and effectively. When it comes to the fuel aspect, safety is of utmost importance.

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

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

The MSDSs sheets are required to be available to all workers all the time. Like for instance, if an exposure incident happens, the person has to be evaluated immediately. If any medical attention is required, 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 physician if you really believe it is severe. Always better to be safe than sorry.
