Top 8 Safety Products to Protect Against Forklift Damage

Forklift Collision Damage - Top 8 Safety Products in Dallas TXJune 13, 2017 is National Forklift Safety Day so we’d like to create awareness for some of our favorite collision prevention solutions.

Forklift accidents are at the top of the list for potential hazards in most distribution centers and warehouses.  Collision accidents are quite common so it remains a high priority to safeguard pedestrians and equipment in facilities where any type of industrial lift trucks are used.  Thousands of workers are injured every year due to operator negligence or lack of safety provision.

Top accidents involving workers include: Worker/forklift collisions – Load falls onto worker – Driver trapped between forklift and object – Forklift drives off loading dock.

Poor operator judgement and lack of proper operator training account for a portion of forklift accidents. So it’s important to find a good safety training program for your truck operators and make it a company policy to renew certifications on a regular basis.  Having your lift trucks routinely inspected and maintained is another must in upholding safety within your facility.

Then there are factors that create accident prone conditions: poor lighting, high noise levels, little or no traffic control, excessive speeds, and insufficient aisle space.  So it’s equally important that the work area must also be safeguarded to promote the highest success in safety.

Our Top 8 Collision Prevention ProductsSafety products for collision damage prevention in warehouses and distribution centers - Dallas TX

If you’re operating forklifts or industrial lift equipment in your facility, we highly recommend the following equipment for well-rounded protection of your work area.

Safety Guardrail – Promote a safe and efficient work environment by installing guardrail perimeter barriers.  Withstands 10,000 lbs. of impact with proper installation.  Protects in-plant buildings, expensive equipment, and defines pedestrian walkways.

Pedestrian Barriers – Clearly separate and define walkways and safe pedestrian areas. Ability to quickly identify safe walk areas from dangerous traffic areas. Cost effective solution.

Post Protectors – Keep your pallet rack and products intact – anchors to the floor to prevent damage from forklift collision. End-Of-Aisle protectors available for the full width of your rack upright.

Pallet Rack Safety Netting – Protect the workers under your products – reduce the safety hazard of falling items into the work area. Cost effective, durable solution.

Steel Bollards – Protects dock doors, equipment, buildings from collision damage. Sturdy and effectively absorbs impact.

Safety Gates  – Helps to prevent heavy equipment or products from rolling off your dock. Provides controlled access and directs pedestrian traffic.

Safety Lights & Mirrors – Provides proper lighting and visual cues to commonly hazardous areas. Easy to mount on installed dock arms.  LED energy efficient lighting.

Collision Awareness – Improves critical communication between truck drivers and dock workers – providing clear signals instantly recognized as ‘stop and go’.  Creates awareness at blind intersections or overhead areas.

Fortunately, there are many ways to prevent and potentially avoid forklift related accidents – and making your facility safe for workers, pedestrians, and equipment is something we specialize in.

Forklift Collision Protection – Guardrail Stops 10,000 LB Of Force

Forklift Collision Protection - National Safety Awareness banner imageJune is National Safety Month. We take safety very seriously as I’m sure you do and thought it would be a good time to remind everyone about protecting your equipment and personnel against forklift collision.  Forklift accidents happen more often than anyone would like to admit.

Image of forklift collision damage to brick wallForklift operators have a lot to pay attention to. Not only are they expected to work safely, but they also must keep up with productivity.  Due to busyness, blind spots, and unprotected areas, accidents will happen. Fortunately, there are many ways to prevent and potentially avoid forklift accidents.

DSV is a global transport and warehouse logistics company which delivers cargo anywhere in the world by air, sea, road and rail. So you can imagine their warehouse floor is a very active area with over 20 forklifts running constantly, flying around the facility, picking up and dropping off pallets.

Electric panel wall now protected by guardrail in Dallas TXWithin the facility, the brick wall housing the electric panel and inplant office are situated next to busy dock doors.  A forklift operator backed into the inner brick wall, as they were leaving the dock – which took out a chunk of wall.  Fortunately the damage was minor and no one was injured.  (Picture to right shows forklift collision damage which occured before the guardrail solution.)

After a thorough safety evaluation, we suggested a wall of defense with heavy duty guardrail to:

  1. Protect the wall and inplant office
  2. Create an aisle between the wall and guard rail so people could walk safety
  3. Prevent the electrical panel from being damaged

In-plant office protected by guardrail in Dallas TXOur In-Stock selection of guardrail, after being properly installed, is engineered to withstand a 10,000 pound impact at 4 mph. Ensuring the people and equipment within your facility will remain protected from traffic accidents and other hazards. Guardrail is used to safeguard conveyor systems, manufacturing equipment, electrical panels, computer stations, staircases and walkways, in-plant offices, first aid and restroom areas, or anywhere else crash protection is required.

Now with the increased safety to the facility, equipment and pedestrian walk ways, UTI/DSV benefits from a safer working environment protecting people, products, profits – securely and reliably.

WAYST No Space With Modular In-Plant Offices

What Are You Selling Today by Greg Brown, President of W.W. Cannon in Dallas TXWAYST-What Are You Selling Today – Seriously, waste no space or time with a modular in-plant office solution from Starrco.

Greg Brown, President of W.W. Cannon, is off to Houston TX to provide a custom solution for one of our manufacturing clients serving the energy industry.

Guard Rail and Starrco BldgTheir growing needs required a solution for office space to accomodate additional employees without permanent construction.  Within a busy company, rapid turnaround plus very little production interruption on their manufacturing floor was a top priority.  Starrco modular office buildings provided just the solution.  Easily relocated office structures with unlimited flexibility to respond quickly to evolving needs.  All building systems are easy to configure, relocate, assemble and wire.

Taking advantage of the facility’s ceiling height, the new modular office space will be located on a Cogan mezzanine steel storage platform within the manufacturing plant floor giving them additional space above and below.  Rows of steel shelving manufactured by Rousseau Metal will be part of the solution to provide for their growing storage needs.

Modular In-Plant Building Features:

  • wwc.Installation Team - Starrco InstallShipped to your facility, ready to be assembled.
  • Vinyl covered gypsum board walls give a professional, clean appearance.
  • Panels need no mud, sanding, painting (translated: less mess and limited work disruption).
  • Typical installation – 1 Day for a 12′ x 12′ (144 sqft) office – 3-4 Days for a 30′ x 12′ (288 sqft) three room office.
  • Aluminum extrusion framing does not rot or corrode, is strong and can be engineered to have a load bearing storage platform roof or can be 2-story system.
  • Electric “plug and play” system includes receptacles and lighting with pre-wired breakers.  System easy to unplug/plug back in when relocating structure.
  • Considered tangible property, there is a significant tax benefit.  Tangible property is depreciated over a 7 year period.

“Houston is a wonderful town that powers America. I don’t think there is anything more American than what you see in Houston and STARRCO’s Modular Office Buildings.” says W.W. Cannon President Greg Brown. “Remember to WAYST your time.”
