Forklift Daily Maintenance Checklist


But you may ask yourself “What specifically are my operators to check for?”

For your convenience, we have provided a sample daily or pre-shift checklist for your use which outlines items to be inspected. Of course, depending on your application, you may find it useful to include other items.

Even if a forklift is not in use on a particular day or shift, it’s worthwhile to note that for future reference. If an O.S.H.A. inspection ever occurred, there would be no gaps in the operation history of that lift truck.

Remember though that ALL forklift operators must be authorized and properly trained in safe operation. This is the employer’s responsibility and SuperTech can provide this necessary and O.S.H.A. safety training at your facility.

Also ensure that your personnel have read the Operators Manual carefully and made themselves familiar with the lift truck. Remind operators to wear their seatbelt too! Forklift trucks are particularly susceptible to tipovers. Seatbelt use is also enforced by OSHA.


OSHA requires a pre-shift inspection of all lift trucks before they are placed into service. Employers must be certain that no condition exists that might adversely affect the safety of the truck. If problems are found, they must be reported and the truck should be taken out of service immediately for repair. A “Warning: Do NOT Operate” Tag should be affixed to the truck, and not removed until the necessary repairs have been made.

Since pre-shift inspection is an OSHA requirement, it is important for the employer to be prepared to document that these inspections have been made on a regular basis. Review OSHA 1910.178(q)(7) and 1910.178(p)(1).

Features & Benefits of the E24i

The E24i is the most robust E24™ motor ever, with a higher maximum speed than the original E24™. We simplified wiring and reduced the number of spare parts by integrating the DC motor and motor control card into one package. The E24i is compatible with the existing E24™ wiring harness for power distribution and I/O.

To use with EZLogic®, connect the EZLogic® output cable to the M8 connector on the back of the motor.

There is a 4-position terminal block on the back of the E24™i motor. You can give a 24-volt input to the motor, or you can get 24-volt outputs. The first terminal block is the “Motor Run” input. When not using EZLogic®, run the motor by giving a positive 24- volt signal to the 1st terminal block.

The second terminal block is the “Reverse” input. Reverse the motor by supplying a 24-volt signal to the reverse input terminal. The third terminal block is for an external analog signal. Supply a 0-10 volt analog input, or the “Analog” input, to control the speed from a remote analog source, such as Hytrol’s Global Speed Controller.

The fourth terminal outputs 24 volts when the motor is running. Use this signal to monitor the individual status of zones or connect it to the Motor Run input of an adjacent motor to control two motors from one signal.
