Forklifts along with different forklifts may have particular labels used in some hazardous locations. The label indicates that this certain model of forklift meets the minimum standards of ANSI/UL 553 for electric forklifts or ANSI/UL 558 for internal combustion engine lift trucks.
Applications for labeled lift trucks may be found in National Fire Protection Association NFPA 505 - Powered Industrial trucks including: Maintenance and Operation, Type Designations, and Areas of Use. Check with your local insurance carrier and Fire Marshall for more info on the approved uses of industrial powered trucks in your application.
If the specific forklift satisfies the outlined standards, labels could be placed. A labeled lift truck will show the type of designation put on the nameplate and will have a properly corresponding label placed.
