Pedestrian Guide Tip #3
Yes, pedestrians, forklifts do have a braking system. The forklift does have the ability to stop. However, if the forklift is carrying a load and needs to stop quickly, the load can and will move. The movement may cause for the load to shift and move, potentially falling from low or high heights. Not only can the pedestrian get hit from the load itself, but can also be injured from the debris that falls from the forks. As you can image, there’s also a cost associated with the damaged goods and anything else that gets damaged such as the racking system, forklift to name a few.
The S3 PDS can help avoid situations like this by warning the forklift driver that a pedestrian is nearby.
