Forklift accidents are on the rise


It’s a fact. The frequency of forklift accidents is on the rise in factories, warehouses and other facilities. Following are just a few reasons for the increasing occurrence:


  • Stress and pressure to meet deadlines

  • Lack of concentration

  • Increased workloads

  • Poor visibility

  • Unanticipated obstacles


Many of these accidents occur at crossings and intersections, ends of long passages or in areas with blind spots. Some are simply due to unawareness of silent vehicles and pedestrians. But whether the collision is between forklift and pedestrian, forklift and forklift, or any other factor, the results can be as devastating as lifelong injuries or even worse, fatalities.  There is a vital need for accident prevention.


Observation Post


The latest in a series of SOLAN solutions, Observation Post is designed to eliminate damage and injury due to collisions. The system ensures identification and warning of approaching forklifts at distances of 4 to 8 meters before meeting points. It features detection and identification units and flashing signals positioned on site or at a distance of 4 meters. Observation Post detects the movement of forklifts approaching designated meeting points and alerts pedestrians and other forklift operators when they are in dangerous proximity of one another via warning alarms or flashing lights. 


Observation Post Options:


Additional warnings are available such as sirens, buzzers, beeps, outdoor observation points and alarms at extended distances for full coverage of the entire area. Observation Post can be customized to meet your exact needs.
