Europe is leading the Forklift-Free Movement. In the white paper "Forklift-Free:
Protect the workplace from employee injuries and deaths
Boost lean efficiency
Drive cost reduction
Safety is driving momentum for forklift-free environments. Although training and legislation are instrumental in managing some degree of risks associated with forklifts, statistics reveal numerous accidents occur every year, providing reason for greater acceptance of forklift-free environments. This motivation towards forklift-free leads the way to adopting a more efficient form of transport–automated guided vehicles (AGVs)–favorably driving benefits beyond safety and profitability.
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.
