Ways to Reduce Forklift Injuries
What are some of the ways we can help the forklift operators from getting injured? Here are the top three suggestions.
- Targeted training. Many managers start from the beginning and retrain on areas that are doing well. It’s better to identify and target weak areas so the operators can get better.
- Get a forklift safety system for all of your lift trucks. The safety system should include a digital forklift checklist for OSHA compliance and to ensure proper operation of the lift truck, a pedestrian and object detection system so the operator can be alerted to a pedestrian within a dangerous vicinity.
- Telemetry Dashboard. The safety system should also be monitoring, tracking and real-time reporting on near misses and low, medium and high impacts. This gives you patterns. Patterns on behavior, patterns on areas that are high(er) risk for an accident.
This is what brings training and technology together. Now with the use of the results of technology, you can target operator training for better safety, efficiency and productivity.
