Logistics needs to become safer. There is much to be done!
How safe is logistics? To answer this question, we need to have a look on DGUV accident statistics 2019 for Germany:
- 14788 notifiable forklift accidents
- 10 fatal accidents
- 46% of all accidents are caused by hitting or running over persons or obstacles
Not to mention numerous minor collisions which cause disruptions and high internal expenditures.
We cannot and do not want to accept this! Therefore, we are continuously developing fork solutions for higher safety in logistics.
A good example is VETTER SmartFork. Integrated cameras inside the fork tip and lateral fork blade offer best visibility on and ahead of the load. Blind spots are significantly reduced. The forklift driver sees what is happening around the load and is no longer driving “blind”. Optional integrated laser, light and inclination sensors increase safety further.
And there are also anti-slip / anti-noise coatings for forks, pallet trucks and attachments. The risk of slipping load is significantly reduced.
VETTER offers still more products for higher safety and less accidents. Tell us your application for your individual solution.
