There are numerous products and accessories on the market today designed to help improve warehouse productivity and ensure you are getting the most out of your forklift. Over the last several weeks we have discussed how you can prevent forklift accidents and we also provided you with an everyday forklift inspection checklist. It is our intention to set you and your team up for success, especially when it comes to operating a forklift and getting the job done. Unfortunately, forklift accidents happen and can result in serious injuries – and even death. This is why safety is so important. Even though we will not be able to prevent every single forklift accident from taking place, there are things we can do in order to lessen the chance of these types of incidents – one of which is to have forklift safety accessories on hand.
Forklift safety accessories can be quite effective in preventing accidents from occurring and keeping workers safe in general. However, it is important to keep in mind that the accessories we will go over below do not replace the use of human spotters, horns, area restricted signs, etc. These accessories should simply serve as an extra form of protection and safety net, if you will. It is also important to keep in mind that safety accessories are only as effective as the person using them, so it is imperative your employees receive adequate training and are prepared to operate a forklift and work in the warehouse environment. With all that in mind, let’s now take a look at some of the top forklift safety accessories and how they may be of use in your workplace:
We hope these forklift safety accessories will help you work more efficiently and keep you and your workers safe. For more information on forklifts in Irving, please do not hesitate to contact Ace Equipment today.
