Two-minute forklift propane safety video available

Service technician talks propane forklift safety in new Propane Education and Research Council (PERC) video.

The Propane Education & Research Council released a new forklift safety video, adding to its existing collection of online safety resources. The video features safety tips narrated by a propane service technician.

The two-minute video demonstrates propane forklift safety tips for the refueling process. The service technician outlines important topics including proper protective gear, how to inspect tanks for exterior damage, how to put a cylinder on a forklift, how to secure the tank and more. 

“We’re excited to share this video because it tackles the topic of safety from a perspective we haven’t yet covered,” says Matt McDonald, director of off-road business development at PERC. “The video is quick and digestible for busy crews and we think it will serve as a great supporting resource for anyone that operates propane forklifts.”

In addition to the new service technician video, PERC’s forklift safety landing page is equipped with a variety of resources created to support crews nationwide. Resources include an eight-part video series highlighting important safety protocols, a downloadable safety poster, a toolkit for safety directors and forklift dealers, and PERC’s forklift trivia challenge.
