    Electric forklift fumes

    Hi there,
    I am worried about the build up of corrosion all over the batteries on the fork I use at work. Yesterday (the batteries must have leaked when I was on it) the corrosion even ate through the weld connecting the batteries to the rest of the fork. Up until this point, I had a headache and my thoughts felt clouded. Would this have any relation to the battery leak or corrosion? I am using the same machine today and noticed a headache almost as soon as I hopped on the fork and my mind seems blank. Any answers are much appreciated, thanks for your time.

    Any information is also appreciated. Tried to search for some on Google but couldn't find much.

    fumes from battery area of forklift

    Fumes should not be taken lightly - it appears you have a chemical reaction as you get on a car battery. Old remedy is use vasoline around terminals to stop corrosion but more important have the forklift serviced.
    Have you reported it on your daily pre- start inspection sheet ?
    Will not comment on your symptons but if you believe the fumes are causing a health problem see a Doctor.
