Give Me What I Need, Please
We know that with the SIERA.AI forklift safety system it is in constant motion doing its job and collecting data. However, let’s spend some time understanding what to do with the information it collects.
To begin, telemetry systems can be very deep and complex. Afterall, telemetry is a science. But does a safety manager or a plant manager really need all that information? Sometimes yes, but most times, no. These managers know what they need and want to get at that the forklift tracking and monitoring data quickly so decisions can be applied and changes can be made. What does management want?
- Pass / Fail for Forklift Inspection Checklist: All that you want to know if which asset failed, when did it fail, and who was on the asset. You know you’ll get immediate notification as soon as it fails, but viewing that information collectively gives you insights into each asset as well as the operators. You will be able to check patterns. Is the failure a common occurrence? Does something need to be reviewed, repaired, maintained? The data will tell you exactly what you need to know to take corrective action.
- Impact Detection: Knowing the level of impacts: low, medium and high and where the impacts are occurring will let you know if there is a ‘hot’ spot within the facility or does a particular driver needs particular training in a vital area.
- Near Miss Tracking: One of the best ways to know where problem areas within the facility are maturing is with near miss tracking. By reviewing the data, you’ll gain insights into where those areas are at and take corrective action to reduce the likelihood of an accident from happening.
- Pedestrian and Object Detection: Yes, we all care about protecting the person from being in a bad situation. And those accidents need to be controlled. But so does the forklift to equipment and forklift to facility. That’s because all companies have a line item of repairs and loss product due to forklift hits. The warning and alerts will help to reduce this number significantly so not only are you avoiding people, but objects that cost a lot of money too.
