Lift Truck Tank Safety
The propane powered lift truck is amongst the most common kinds of lift trucks. These machinery are powered by propane, that come with certain considerations which should be accounted for. It is very important that PPE or also referred to as Personal Protective Equipment is worn at all times to be safe.

PPE
Propane is a very cold gas. It is very cold to touch since skin contact could lead to severe burns. When you are re-fueling or exchanging the propane tank, be sure to put on thick gloves and goggles or a full face shield. PPE or Personal Protective Equipment is a requirement to be utilized on location so as to keep the driver as safe as possible. PPE or Personal Protective Equipment is a standard workplace requirement for the majority of companies using this equipment and if the operator does not have the right items on, like for example steel-toe boots, a hardhat, goggles and so forth than he or she would be banned from using the equipment.

Inspect the Valve
Before connecting the fuel line in the process of exchanging the tank, make sure 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 can result in a potentially hazardous condition.

Fire Extinguisher
Having a fire extinguisher on hand when re-fueling is occurring or during the time the tank is being changed out is one more essential safety measure to have implemented. The majority of businesses have fire extinguishers situated close to the refueling station. It is better to have one nearby and not need it, than to require one and not have one handy. Most safety regulations need this is set up on site as well.

Secure the Tank
The majority of propane tanks have either a restraining device or a strap to secure the tank to the equipment. Be sure that this device is properly functioning and correctly used so that you could prevent the tank from falling or shifting, because this can also result in a hazardous condition.
