Of all warehouse accidents, the most horrifying one frequently involves pedestrians. According to OSHA Estimates, each forklift in your facility has a 1 in 10 chance of being involved in some sort of an accident this year. As we all know, accidents can have any number of root causes, but it’s up to you as the employer to train your employees to be safe, whether they’re forklift operators or merely pedestrians, to minimize the risk. In addition to comprehensive training, there are many other things you can do to improve safety and visibility in your facility.
One such item, the Forewarner – Blue or Red Pedestrian Safety Light that is new to the market and can be installed on any forklift – whether electric or propane powered.
These lights mount to the forklift to project a blue or red beam in both the front and rear of the forklift that helps to notify pedestrians of the forklift’s presence. The blue and red beams are highly visible, and truly stands out as an ample warning that the equipment is approaching, while still allowing enough time to get away before an accident occurs.
