Forklift Safety: Sensing the Dangers With Technology

Summary: One common hazard in manufacturing environments is struck-by events between forklifts and pedestrian workers. This article reviews research conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of magnetic field proximity-sensing technology deployed in an active indoor manufacturing environment. •The technology was used to assess multiple variables associated with the successful implementation and operation of magnetic field proximity on a forklift and pedestrian workers. Experimental results demonstrate the proximity-sensing system’s ability to alert pedestrian workers and forklift operators when a hazardous proximity situation exists.

What is the BOK?

The Body of Knowledge project is dedicated to creating a living reference that represents the collective knowledge of the Safety, Health and Environmental profession. While the preliminary work has begun, there is still more to do. The purpose of this website is to introduce subject areas that will eventually be part of the Body of Knowledge, and to gather feedback on the future direction, and ongoing assessment of what needs to be completed.
