Lift Truck Tank Safety
The propane powered lift truck is amongst the most popular types of forklifts. These machinery are powered by propane, which come with some considerations which should be accounted for. It is vital that PPE or also known as Personal Protective Equipment is worn at all times so as to be safe.

Personal Protective Equipment or PPE
Propane is a really cold gas. It is very cold to touch because skin contact can lead to severe burns. When you are re-fueling or exchanging the propane tank, be certain to wear goggles or a full face shield and thick gloves. Personal Protective Equipment or PPE is a requirement to be used on location so as to keep the operator as safe as possible. PPE is a standard workplace requirement for the majority of companies utilizing this type of machinery and if the operator does not have the correct items on, like for instance safety goggles, steel-toe boots, a hardhat and that than she or he will be banned from utilizing the machine.

Check the Valve
Before connecting the fuel line in the process of exchanging the tank, make certain that the new tanks valve is turned off. This is very essential because when you are inserting the fuel line into an open valve, you will release the propane gas. This condition could create a potentially hazardous situation.

Fire Extinguisher
Another important safety measure 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 station. It is better to have one close by and not need it, than to require one and not have one nearby. Nearly all safety regulations require this is set up on location also.

Secure the Tank
Most propane tanks have either a strap or a restraining device to secure the tank to the machinery. Be certain that this device is working properly and used correctly so that you can prevent the tank from falling or shifting, because this can also result in a dangerous situation.
