Dear Mr. Haas:

I am responding to the information requested on forklift trucks per your letter of March 13, 1985.

The required industrial truck for handling LOX is listed in section 1910.178(c)(2)(iii) or (iv). To be safe, a type EX industrial truck shall be used.

The NFPA standard does not address roadways exactly although I would use paragraph 2-2.1.12, 10 feet (attached).

There is no problem transferring the LOX during a thunderstorm, but you would have the same problem as any other being struck by lightning if near the truck.

Thank you for your interest in safety.

Sincerely,



JAMES R. GUENTHER
Safety Engineer Office of Technical Support
