Forklift Free Environments are Safer According to Cisco Eagle in Seegrid Whitepaper

Forklift Free Environments are Safer According to Cisco Eagle in Seegrid Whitepaper

 
PRLog - Jun. 21, 2014 - “Fork-free environments are inherently safer. Just the injury-to-incident rate tells you that. Forklifts cause just 1% of industrial accidents, but over 10% of industrial injuries. You still have to find safer ways to move palletized and heavy loads, but those methods are out there. At the very least, reducing the number of forklifts helps you operate safer, since you are training fewer drivers (meaning you can train them better). With a hundred annual deaths and 20,000 serious injuries every year, forklifts tend to be the most dangerous machinery in any industrial operation. There are risks with the various fork-free methods— there are always risks in handling heavy unit loads—but they tend to be mitigated to a greater degree,” remarked Scott Stone, Marketing Manager for Cisco-Eagle in the white paper "Forklift-Free: Driving Safety and Profitability.” Seegrid carefully reveals how implementing a forklift-free environment for material flow and movement can:

Protect the workplace from employee injuries and deaths

Boost lean efficiency

Drive cost reduction

The whitepaper includes an intensive thought-provoking analysis and objective data about employee injuries and deaths, cost burdens associated with forklift accidents and citations. There is also information about high labor wages, expensive training programs, and scarce labor availability and manufacturers' unsaleable rates.  The information included examines lean alternative for manned forklift transport as part of continuous process improvement strategies.
