Automated Data Collection Reduces the Risks of Forklift Accidents
Forklift data capture can play a key role in reducing forklift accidents in the facility. The operator facing technology for digital forklift inspections, getting audio and visual warnings when a pedestrian and/or an object is within a dangerous distance is only half of the story. The other half is the forklift data captured from the operator facing experiences. What is included within the forklift data capture? Let’s take a closer look.
What is Forklift Data Capture?
Forklift data capture is the process of recording the data in real-time from key events such as forklift inspection checklist answers, recording the G force of a forklift impact, identifying a near miss, identifying a pedestrian or an object within a specified area and more. The forklift data capture is electronically stored in a highly secured Internet portal where authorized people can obtain access to view the data for eliminating guesswork, validating questions and improved decision making.
Forklift Inspection Data Capture
Knowing when a forklift fails or passes is part of the forklift data capture. Since the information is captured, you can find out more information that can maximize the investment made in your forklifts and forklift fleets. These include:
- View by worksites: meaning you can view the results of any of your facilities regardless of location in the world
- View by asset or asset type: you want to know how a particular asset is performing, or all of the forklift, pallet jacks or even golf carts are going, you can sort it to find out
- View by Inspector: if you want to analyze the forklift data capture by the inspector in a particular worksite, you can. You can view the trends to a particular day, month or customize the period of time.
- View by pass or fail: here you can go into further details and analyze the question(s) that failed, check on the pattern for that failure, and find out if it’s a chronic issue or short period of time.
View by the same, or similar criteria as above, here you will be able to analyze the forklift data capture by:
- Near Miss Detection: By tracking and collecting this data, you’ll be able to know how many almost accidents your facility experienced. This is key as you will be able to understand where in the facility this is occurring, how often by custom dates and even know the who. Is it everyone, is it a specific operator, where you can assigned targeted training before a low, medium or high impact occurs.
- Low, Medium and High Impact: By monitoring, tracking and reporting on impacts, you can determine who, what and where the impacts occur for better management of accidents to pedestrians, product, other equipment or your facility. You can be notified for all impacts, or only those that are most important such as medium and high impacts.
If you want to know who attempted to access a forklift, golf cart or any other material handling equipment, tracking unauthorized individuals is key to ensuring people are safe and not reckless. Again, you can manage this by the same or similar criteria as above. Your report will show where in the facility it occurred with our GPS tracking along with a picture of the individual. Now you have the proof and can take action to ensure their safety and security, along with your equipment.
