State four safety factors to consider when charging a lift truck battery

forklift battery

State four safety factors to consider when charging a lift truck battery is question number twenty three on the instructor's main set of questions. Please note you may or may not get this question on a forklift operator's training course. The actual answers expected are:

A.   The correct charger has been chosen
B.   The charger is switched off prior to connection to the lift truck battery
C.   The battery is ventilated sufficiently
D.   The electrical cables are not at risk of entrapment
E.   The connector is connected to the battery  not the lift truck

Your wording does not have to be exactly as the answers shown above but should be capable of interpretation so as to mean the same as the answers above.

I had to laugh at answer E. I actually did this once when I was training a guy in Tellford. If Finbarr Dowling, formerly of Landis and Gyre, ever reads this, please get in touch so I can apologise:-)
