Low Forklift Impact
A low forklift impact are the ones that go unreported. However, low forklift impacts can be identifiers for what can be a ‘high risk’ area for forklift accidents. This information will be calculated for you in the telemetry Dashboard.
A low forklift impact can include slamming on the brakes. You may think, ‘eh’ not a big deal. Let’s give you a couple scenarios. A forklift driver places a large amount of pressure on the brakes when he turned the corner to tight. But why? Was there something there? Were there boxes blocking the way? Was the driver speeding? Was the driver aware of the surroundings?
Let’s consider another example. A forklift driver slams on the brakes in what you believe was a clear, open aisle. Did a worker come out from under the racking system into the aisle? Did a pallet shift on the rack and startled the driver? Was the driver on his cell phone and didn’t notice the pedestrian or that the driver was too close to the racking systems edge? Low level impacts can provide a world of insights that can eventually build up to become a full-blown accident costing your company in many ways.
