Solid Lift Truck Tire Safety
Around 200 deaths each year are caused by mishaps involving lift trucks, or forklifts. Correct inspection and maintenance of lift truck tires could truly help to lessen the risk of accidents.

Pre-Work Inspection
The tires on the lift truck must be inspected at the beginning of every shift, checked for signs of damage and wear. The air pressure inside the tires must be checked to make certain that the pressure is not too low. Low tire pressure could make the machinery prone to tip-overs when lifting loads.

Types of Tires
The tire type of the forklift would be based upon the kind of floor surface that the forklift would operate on. Solid rubber tires are great for indoor use. For smoother surfaces, tires tend to be smaller. Larger pneumatic tires are best for lift trucks being utilized outdoors. Pneumatic tires could grip rough surfaces well because they have rubber tread and are air-filled.

Other factors
Based on Occupational Health and Safety Administration guidelines, all lift trucks require some periodic and some continual daily checks that is carried out each shift. The tires must be inspected again for any sign of damage, like cuts or wear.

Lift truck Safety
If you or your workers will be utilizing forklifts, correct training in lift truck safety is important. Lift truck mishaps can lead to serious personal injuries or death and cause unmanageable financial hardship. Even minor accidents can cost you and your business money if the merchandise or the forklift are damaged during an accident. Be sure you are well informed about problems involved in forklift safety.
