Exhaust gas measurement on forklift trucks
Forklifts and other industrial trucks that are operated in buildings must be regularly inspected and tested for occupational health and safety reasons. If these machines are powered by a combustion engine, exhaust gas components must also be measured to determine whether the forklift may be operated in the building.
A distinction must be made between forklifts powered by a gas engine and those powered by a diesel engine. In the case of a gas engine, the UVV "Use of liquid gas" (DGUV79, formerly BGVD39) is used as a standard, and in the case of a diesel engine, the TRGS 554 is used as a standard.
