Hello everyone! 

Question:

Can we have propane forklifts in production areas, or do they have to be electrical?

Generally speaking - no and it is most times due to fumes.

 

At our suggestion I have a client at a seafood company changing out a number of fork lifts and going over to battery this week.

No. We still have one propane forklift but I have instructed warehouse it is strictly for using it outside. Inside production it is all battery.

We use an electric forklift in the production and warehouse area (for storing raw produce and packaging). 

We still use one propane forklift outside of the production area, away from finished product.  

 

It is your best bet to start to move towards electric if you can, at least for your production and finished product areas.
