There are 3 ways to classify an impact: low, medium and high. These categories make it easier to decide when you want a notification sent to you based on the severity of an impact. Let’s say for instance, the forklift driver makes a hard stop. Would you classify that as a low, medium or high impact? Most will agree that this will be a low-level impact. Is a hard stop enough to trigger a notification? Probably not.
What if the forklift hits a racking system and bends one of the vertical infrastructure steel pieces? Would you classify this as a low, medium or high impact? For argument’s sake, let’s classify this as a high impact. If your shelves are full with customer product and the forklift impacts the integrity of the racking system’s infrastructure, causing a weakening of the rack, then let’s say that’s a high impact. Is that enough to trigger a notification? Probably yes.
What if the forklift hits a pile of pallets and causes the pallets to move out of place, enough where the driver needs to stop the forklift, get out of the forklift and determine if any of the pallets have been damaged. Would you consider this to be a medium impact? Is a situation like this enough for a notification to be sent? Maybe.
