Hazards of Type-G lift trucks
Forklifts carry out an important role in the operations of warehouses and other businesses. These equipment are capable of lifting and transporting huge loads from one location to another. There are numerous variations on the forklift. The primary variation is the way in which different types of forklifts are fueled. "LP" forklifts are the kind which is most popular. They run on liquid propane. Type "E" forklifts have large rechargeable batteries and run on electricity. Type "D" forklifts utilize diesel and type "G" operate on gasoline. Though all lift trucks, like any piece of heavy machine, can pose a danger, the type of forklifts which are powered by gasoline carry the most risks.

Forklifts labelled type G could present a fire hazard. Gas forklifts are not made with the same rigorous standards. Gas leaks are the biggest cause of fire due mainly to gas leaks and also escaped gas fumes. This could result from mishaps and from driving on really rough terrain or normal wear. These circumstances pose a danger and could result in fire. Hence, a standard Type G lift truck should never be used in conditions where elevated fire risk is deemed not acceptable. Like for example, these units must not be used around hazardous or explosive chemicals.

Type G lift trucks also pose a risk of explosion, as do those which run on liquid propane and diesel. A kind of forklift that operate on gasoline can explode as a result of a serious accident in circumstances where an ignition source and a gasoline leak are present. An explosion could happen when sparks are created in the collision and the sparks ignite the gasoline.

Fumes and Exhaust
Type G forklifts pose a serious inhalation hazard because of toxic fumes. Gasoline fumes could be deadly in high concentrations. Fumes can result from gasoline leaks or from the exhaust itself. Therefore, a Type G forklift is really not suggested for any environment that is poorly ventilated. The exhaust will present a serious hazard in enclosed spaces. This particular type of lift truck must be used with caution when operated in close proximity to individuals.
