Beyond the Forklift: How Customers Use the S2 as their Digital Industrial Transformation Solution
Industrial digital transformation allows the manufacturing plant, warehouse and distribution center to use technology, people and processes to build and improve efficiency for their workers and customers. Digital checklists play a critical role in promoting and enforcing safety in an industrial facility. We’re going to discuss various industrial digital transformations that focus on safety within our customer’s operation.
Digital Forklift Safety Checklist Moves to the Facility
A materials supply company adopted the S2 for its digital forklift safety solution. The company uses it for pre-shift and post-shift forklift inspections and captures critical information on all of its forklifts in its facility. Maintenance uses the S2 as its tool or solution to monitor the health of the forklift as well as its lifecycle.The facilities director realized the power and flexibility of the S2. Now the director tracks real-time digital inspections for its HVAC systems, boilers, burners, electrical and lighting systems. Their goal was to create checklists for operational efficiencies and effectiveness. All information is stored and analyzed in the Dashboard.
A manufacturing customer uses the S2 for its pre-shift forklift safety checks. The had used it in its traditional sense for OSHA compliance for forklift safety. The company tried an experiment. What if we added a question that gave the forklift operator a chance to report issues that they witness during the course of their day? Would the operators report it?The customer added the question and allowed the forklift operator to access it as necessary. Management was surprised to get data from the forklift workers on information ranging from water standing on the floor, product spills on the racking system and floor to damage found on the docks. This allowed management to quickly react to the situation and create an environment that significantly reduced slip and falls, and potential hazardous situations.
Cleaning and Disinfection Infection Prevention
In order to maintain sanitation compliance, the food processing customer uses the S2 digital checklist for its cleaning and disinfection management. The company uses the digital checklists in areas such as pest control, food contact surfaces such as utensils, tables and equipment, non-food contact surfaces such as walls, floors ceilings. All answers are digitally collected and stored in the web-based Dashboard for further analysis. For any areas of concern, a notification is sent to the appropriate person or persons.
Industrial digital transformation can be applied where either paper exists or new processes need to be formed, tracked and reported to maintain OSHA or USDA compliance. Each day, the SIERA.AI customer expands the use of its S2 Digital Inspection safety solution to include the forklift as well as other areas within the facility.
