For the utilization of lift trucks, there are some safety and health rules governing their use. Forklifts are large industrial machines which could be dangerous and have to be handled with safety in mind. The rules and regulations state that the driver needs to carry out daily checks on the forklift and more thorough checks on a weekly basis and every month. The following checks have to be performed on the lift truck:

Lift Truck Brakes - the brakes are a really essential part of the lift truck equipment and therefore they must be double and tripled checked. A brake check is carried out with different pressures and pedal heights to determine the sensitivity of the brakes. The brake lights should be inspected at the same time.

The Tires - forklift tires are also key for the safe functioning of the forklift truck and to the braking system. All the tires need to be properly checked to make certain that there are no punctures in the tires and they are inflated to the right pressure.

Controller - the lift truck controller system is inspected by operating the forks and the release to determine that the system is in good working order. Any hint of issues should be reported and tended to at once. The forklift must not be utilized until the controller system has been repaired.

Steering Wheel - In order to make sure that the turning of the wheel is right, the operator should check the lift truck steering wheel. Lift truck safety depends on the steering wheel working correctly and responding well. There are various kinds of checks that can be carried out to determine steering wheel performance.

Engine Oil - the engine oil needs to be checked by removing the dip stick from the forklift engine. The dipstick would show the oil color and the level of the oil. The oil must be refilled if the level is too low. If the colour is off, there might be contamination happening.

Fire Extinguisher - all forklift trucks are required to be equipped with a fire extinguisher. The extinguisher has to be checked to ensure it would work properly in case of a fire. Various types of fire extinguisher must be checked in certain ways. Like for example, a dry chemical extinguisher needs to be shaken.
