Lifting Safety Standards
The OE Attachments Forklift Safety Device (FLSD) is a forklift safety solution engineered to prevent forklift related accidents, injuries, and property damage by providing real time monitoring and safety alerts well before accidents occur.
What Causes Forklift Accidents
There are two major causes of forklift accidents. The first is tipping due to the mismanagement of load capacity and capacity ratings based on static conditions. The second is forklift related collisions due to a lack of visibility either by the driver or a pedestrian. Here are some reasons why these occur:
Incorrect estimation of forklift load center
Unstable load placement on forklift
Load exceeds capacity of forklift
Operating on uneven or sloped surfaces
Incorrect estimation of drop-offs or steps
Load is too large blocking forward visibility
Operator is unaware of physical surroundings
Operator fails to watch back of forklift
Pedestrian is unaware forklift is coming
Pedestrian ignores forklift audible alarms
OE Attachment’s Forklift Safety Device (FLSD) is a safety solution engineered to prevent forklift-related accidents, injuries, and property damage by providing real-time monitoring and safety alerts well before accidents occur. Using a patented system of sensors and cameras that are installed onto the forklift, all data is transmitted back to the driver via a touchscreen monitor mounted in the forklift cab. The screen will instantly alert the driver if a safety hazard is imminent, allowing them ample time to take corrective action. All information is compiled to provide management real-time and summary data.
FORKLIFT SAFETY DEVICE OPERATOR FEATURES INCLUDE:
Dynamically calculates and displays residual load capacity while stationary or in motion (OE Attachments patented technology).
Real-time status of the available load capacity of the vehicle.
Monitors, senses, and responds to external dynamic factors including acceleration, speed, ground slope, drop-offs, and
Identification of non-visible obstacles and hidden risks.
Unparalleled visibility. Forklift camera can provide additional sightline around loads.
Touchscreen tablet monitor provides vehicle status information to the operator.
