Today’s Collision Avoidance Solutions
There are a variety of safety solutions that are meant to keep pedestrians and the forklift operator safe. Some of the one’s everyone currently has on their forklift consist of blue lights, horns, and flashing lights to name a few. These safety solutions are warning signals, but don’t prevent an accident from occurring.
Utilizing technology has helped. There are some solutions out there that utilize RFID. In order for the solution to be successful, each and every pedestrian that steps foot in a warehouse, distribution center or manufacturing facility must wear a device. The device identifies where you are and alerts the driver that a person is nearby. That certainly is progress, but is it stopping an accident? Is it stopping a person from entering a facility without a wearable device? It was good for its time, but now you need something more effective to reach zero accidents.
