Propane Motor Fuel & Forklift Safety
Forklifts powered by propane are in wide use across lots of industries. Propane lift trucks are usually found in warehouses and distribution centers performing a wide variety of industrial and commercial applications. Propane fuel has some unique considerations when used in a workplace. It is important to always follow safety practices and procedures when utilizing this particular machine.

Operation
Forklifts are powered electrically, with propane, gasoline or with diesel. Propane powered lift trucks are the most commonly obtained and used equipment. You'll notice several reasons for this. Propane is a clean-burning fuel, that means it produces a lot less engine exhaust compared to diesel and gasoline. Regardless of the kind of fuel being utilized to operate the lift truck, smoking should be avoided when driving and the unit should not be used near an open flame. The propane is usually stored in a fuel tank, that must be changed out when empty. It is vital for the driver to check that the tank is fastened securely in place prior to starting the engine.

Fueling
Propane is a cold liquid that could burn the skin if it comes in contact with it. Following safety precautions is vital when the tank is being changed out or when the unit is being refueled . Smoking is forbidden in the fueling area. Fueling must never be done near an ignition source or open flame. The driver should put on personal protective equipment when fueling or changing the tank. Full eye protection is very important. Thick gloves need to be worn in order to protect the skin from exposure to propane.
