Warehouse Forklift Maintenance
Forklifts need a proper maintenance program to help increase the machine's lifespan and is an essential factor in allowing the machine to function safely and effectively. Completing forklift check ups on a regular basis and doing preventive maintenance regularly would help to guarantee the efficient and safe operation of the machinery.
In any forklift maintenance program, the daily checklist is an important tool to have. These checklists will document any potential issues. They are required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration or the OSHA. The daily checklists could also be audited by OSHA during any routine inspection. Drivers have to complete the inspection from the start of their shift. If any major problems are found, the forklift can not be utilized until the problem has been fixed.
Safety and Maintenance Go Hand-in-Hand
Each year around 100 individuals are injured in forklift accidents within the USA. Statistics show that roughly 20,000 individuals will be seriously injured because of a forklift mishap. This number represents 54 people a day, 7 days a week, for the entire year. A lot of these accidents can be easily prevented if the forklift had been correctly serviced and maintained. In some circumstances, it may seem like a cost savings to delay or skip routine maintenance, however, these savings would pale in comparison to the cost of one mishap.
Items to be Serviced
The manufacturers owner guidebook would include a recommended maintenance schedule. Schedules would differ depending on each and every manufacturer and every model of forklift. Every schedule will contain a variety of basic things. For instance, in a combustion engine, the engine oil and the oil filter will have to be periodically replaced. Hydraulic levels should be inspected also. Be sure to inspect hoses for any signs of cracking. Other things include the electrical systems, the brakes and the transmission of the forklift.
