Wear a Forklift Seat Belt
This should be an easy one as when the forklift operator is going to or coming from work, there’s a pretty good chance they are wearing a seat belt in the car. Why that doesn’t carry over to the job…your guess is as good as mine. So, forklift safety precautions need to be made to ensure the seat belt is being worn. How?
One of the best ways is with a forklift safety system, by SIERA.AI. When technology is used, it can ensure the forklift operator does what their job demands… safety. If the forklift operator fails to put on their seat belt, the forklift will not start. Even if they start the forklift, begin to drive and then take off the seat belt… the forklift will stop. Will there be those few individuals that take the seat belt and click it together and put it behind their back? I’m sure of it. However, but remember, they will have to constantly deceive the system, and management especially if they make frequent stops. They will have to click it each time get back on the truck. If they have to take the extra step, just wear the seat belt. If a forklift accident occurs, it’ll be quickly known that they were not wearing a seat belt.
