  • Forklift Safety Quiz

    We all know that forklift safety is a critical part of our industry. Operating forklifts can be dangerous, and following regulations is a must to prevent accidents. The Occupational Safety & Health Administraton (OSHA) estimates that about 85 fatal accidents happen each year involving forklifts.  Safety regulations have been established to reduce and ultimatly eliminate forklift accidents.

    So how well do you know forklift safety requirements? Take our forklift safety quiz to find out!

    You can learn more about forklift safety by contacting NEON at (866) 252-439. We also have videos available on our YouTube channel about our forklift safety training program.

    Additional safety information for forklift and powered industrial trucks is available on the OSHA web site.

  • Forklift Repairs

    NEON is an industry expert on all forklift subjects, including forklift repairs.

    Maintaining proper forklift repairs is an essential component of forklift safety. A forklift should never be used if any forklift repairs are needed.

    How often should you perform forklift repairs? There is no definite time frame. Forklifts should always be checked before every shift to ensure that they are in proper working condition and all safety features are working. If anything is not working properly, then the forklift requires immediate forklift repairs before it can be used again.

    Just like a car, some forklift repairs will be minor and others can be expensive. But keeping your forklift in top working condition is a must for safety.

  • Robotic Forklifts the Latest in Forklift Safety

    Robotic forklifts could be the next big thing in forklift safety.

    The U.S. Army recently tested unmanned robotic forklifts that could be used in high-risk environments. These robotic forklifts can locate, lift, move and place palletized supplies in an outdoor depot, according to DC Velocity magazine.

    The demonstration was held in June by the U.S. Army Logistics Innovation Agency at Fort Lee in Virginia. The robotic forklift was a modified internal combustion Toyota 8-Series lift truck. The crowd was able to see its safety features and sensor capabilities. The robotic forklift can respond to human voice commands and gestures.

    The robotic forklift took more than two years of research and development to be completed. The project was a collaborative effort between the scientists and engineers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), BAE Systems, and Lincoln Laboratory with the LIA, the Combined Arms Support Command Sustainment Battle Lab, the Office of the Secretary of Defense, and the Director of Defense Research and Engineering.

    "Robotic forklifts have the potential to protect both military and civilian personnel working in high-risk environments, such as hazardous material storage facilities," said Brett Wood, president of TMHU, in a statement.

  • Forklift Batteries: Operating a Safe Battery Changing Room

     

    Not only will a safe battery changing room prevent catastrophes, it can also increase productivity and save money.

    The most important factor is to make your battery changing room safe. Keep forklift safety equipment, such as goggles and gloves, in easy to reach places for operators to use. Be sure to follow all safety regulations such as eye washing stations and comply with specific ventilation requirements.

    Here are a few things to keep in mind when setting up your battery changing room:

    1. Make sure to choose the right location. It’s a good idea to put the battery changing room near work areas so drivers aren’t wasting time traveling to a far corner of the warehouse.
    2. The room must have adequate electrical service, plumbing, drainage and heating and cooling. The wrong temperature can shorten a battery life.
    3. Remember to leave enough space for people to maneuver around the room with vehicles inside. This includes vertically as well as horizontally. There must be enough space outside the room too for forklift drivers to maneuver their vehicle inside.
    4. Consider using battery changing schedules to avoid traffic overflow and keep an efficient changing time.
    5. Use technology to your advantage. There are many battery management systems on the market that can help you manager your batteries in the most cost-effective way.
