Overview

Collision awareness will always be crucial to the operation of every firm. Pedestrians need peace of mind knowing they aren't in the path of an oncoming fork truck and operators need to be able to do their job efficiently. Collisions have a measurable impact on the costs associated with employee health, safety and satisfaction; vehicle and equipment repair and replacement; inventory and company morale. Halos, lights and horns are a great start to a collision awareness solution, but are limited in there ability to prevent collisions and eventually turn into just background noise.

 

Wyman-Gordon reached out to The Safety Source for a solution to their forklift traffic and collision awareness problem. The Safety Source did a full walk-through of their facility to find any blind spots, corners, office areas, and any other potential areas where a fork truck collision could happen.

 

For blind corners and intersections, we went with Savety Yellow Look Out Alert Warning Systems. For office areas we went with Savety Yellow Office Door Monitors. For areas with overhead doors we went with Savety Yellow Overhead Door Monitor Systems. For areas with any hallways we went with Savety Yellow Hall Door Monitor Systems. Each of these systems uses motion sensors and lights to alert both pedestrians and operators of oncoming traffic.

"The way our new system works is actually quite simple, however very effective. The Safety Source hit a grand slam with this one"
