Forklift Access Control Systems
There are solutions in the marketplace today that help to control the access of a forklift. But somehow, it’s not fulfilling what you need at 100%. Why is that?
One type of system that is offered is the stand-alone keypad. It allows the use of entry combinations (PIN code) or an RFID swipe card to gain access to the forklift. If the entry is wrong, you can’t get on the forklift. If the entry is correct, you can.
It deters the person from trying to gain access to the forklift, but how do you know if anyone attempted? Even more, was the forklift inspection completed.
Feature in a System:
Another type of access control is when it’s a feature of a larger system. This type of solution provides forklift access through an access code or their work badge. It verifies that the authorized drivers have access and sometimes, even checks their certifications.
Again, it deters the person from temptation. You may gain a bit more information, but there’s something critically missing.
