Daewoo IC Forklifts

Inspect a Forklift
OSHA and HRSDC report that more than 10,000 workplace injuries related to fork lifts occur every year. Operator error is the cause of many of these accidents. Lack of appropriate equipment check and maintenance results in numerous others. Forklift operation and maintenance is not only the cause of personal injuries, but also of damage to property. Forklifts can damage sprinklers, building structures and overhead pipes, and other equipment when improperly operated. The following daily inspections must be carried out in order to reduce the chance of forklift mishaps.

Before checking different fluid levels turn off the engine. Inspect these fluids: fuel, engine oil, hydraulic oil, brake fluid and coolant. The tires also have to be checked for indications of wear and tear. Check the tire air pressure. Check the forks' condition. The load backrest have to be firmly attached. Do a visual inspection of the top-clip retaining heel and pin. Then perform an inspection of the hydraulic hoses, mast chains, stops and cables. Make sure that both the finger and overhead guards are firmly attached.

LP forklifts have propane tanks that have to be inspected for indications of corrosion, damage or rust. Test the battery's charge and electrolyte levels. All belts should be checked for wear. Check to make certain the owner's manual is stored on-board the forklift inside a storage compartment. Test the seat belt to make sure the latches are secure. Check the hood latch to ensure it is working as it should.

To make certain there are no unusual engine sounds, start the engine up and listen for any irregularities. If there are, investigate at once. Check the accelerator and the steering controls. The parking break and the service break should be functioning correctly.

The tilt control and drive control should be inspected to ensure proper functioning in both reverse and forward. Check the functioning of the lowering control and hoist, and the attachment control. Test the horn and lights. Afterward check the wipers, heater and defroster to make sure they are functioning smoothly. Check each and every gauge to ascertain that it is reading within functional limits.
