Forklift Detection Sensor: There are 4 Sides to Forklift Visibility, Your Forklift Driver Can Only See One at a Time.
A forklift detection sensor protects your workforce. Whether your lift truck operator drives in reverse or overlooks the forks, your operator can only view one side at a time. Forklift drivers are not truck, bus or taxi cab drivers whose job is focused on one thing: operate the vehicle. As a result, regular vehicles move in mostly a forward direction, the driver is aware of their surroundings with mirrors because they are performing one task…driving.
Forklift drivers need to be multi-taskers. Forklift drivers are required to lift large pallets, drums or heavy materials that obstruct the fork view and therefore, need to be proficient driving in reverse. By the way, the driver also needs to be aware of what’s going on with the other 3 sides as pedestrians and workers are in constant motion.
