Pedestrian Alert System (PAS)
The Pedestrian Alerts System (PAS) from Claitec is a forklift proximity warning system for the prevention of workplace accidents between forklift trucks and pedestrians. A pedestrian warning system is crucial for high traffic environments. Not only do these systems reduce the risk of accidents, they also improve workplace productivity by allowing employees and forklift operators to focus on the task at hand.
The Pedestrian Alert System will warn the forklift driver of nearby pedestrians. Pedestrians must wear electronic tags (KEYFOBS) that are detected by a control unit on the forklift. If a pedestrian comes within the specified range of between 1 and 6.5 metres, the driver will be warned of the risk by a flashing warning light, piezo alarm or by reducing speed automatically (if the forklift model permits). These warnings help to improve forklift pedestrian safety and allow pedestrians and forklifts to coexist within the same space.
PAS can also be used to trigger warning lights and alarms at intersections when pedestrians or forklifts are in the area. The visual and auditory warnings make forklift pedestrian safety systems a valuable investment for hazardous work environments. Not all employees will have a thorough understanding of safety protocols, and with high staff turnover there is also a potential for inexperience. PAS can compensate for momentary lapses in judgement and lack of experience by clearly highlighting potential hazards, before they may be observed. This technology is particularly useful for application in blind corners, intersections and loading zones, three of the most common places for accidents to occur. Safety is paramount – improve your safety standards and reduce the risk of injury at work by installing a pedestrian warning system from Claitec today.
The overwhelming majority of forklift incidents involve pedestrians. Workplace injury claims can be very costly, but PAS systems in conjunction with clearly defined safety practices can dramatically reduce the risk of injury. It is not always easy to keep tabs on visitors, and not everyone will be familiar with industrial workspaces. Pedestrian safety around forklifts should be reinforced at three levels – management, forklift operators and pedestrians. Each group should have a clear and thorough understanding of best practice, with the PAS system serving as an additional aid. By maintaining good pedestrian forklift safety practices, communication and situational awareness will be enhanced. This enables employees to work safely, efficiently and effectively.
The PAS system from Claitec is easy to install, and settings can be customized to suit your needs. It is perfect for warehouses, manufacturing facilities, distribution hubs and other industrial spaces. Make an investment in your employees’ safety and reduce your risk of forklift accidents today – we look forward to assisting you.
Collision Avoidance System (CAS)
The Collision Avoidance System (CAS) by Claitec cautions forklift drivers of the presence of another truck within distances between 3-25 metres. The CAS features a highly advanced proximity detection system that keeps track of all movement on the floor. The collision avoidance system can also be used for Pedestrian detection at distances of up to 6.5m front and back, and up to 4m on each side.
A light and/or buzzer is triggered when another forklift is detected, alerting the driver to potential hazards in the area. Pedestrian detection is also possible, making the crash avoidance system a valuable piece of safety equipment. Industrial workspaces are full of hazards, but by installing an accident avoidance system you can leverage the power of technology and reduce the risk of accident and injury.
Blind Spots (BS)
The Blind Spots (BS) solution minimises any risks of collisions between forklifts and/or pedestrians in poor visibility areas.
The system can be setup for many different types of blind spot situations.
Narrow Aisle Safety (NAS)
The Narrow Aisle Safety (NAS) solution minimises the risks of collision between forklifts in narrow work spaces.
Pedestrian Cross Safety (PCS)
The Pedestrian Crossing Safety (PCS) solution minimises any risks due to collisions between forklifts and pedestrians in areas of high pedestrian traffic at blind spots or where pedestrians cross roadways.
Low Speed Area (LSA)
The Low Speed Area (LSA) equipment limits the forklift speed circulating in different áreas of the warehouse.
It is specially designed to reduce the speed of the forklift in areas where pedestrians or people are working.
Hazardous Areas (HA)
The Hazardous Areas solution is designed to prevent occupational hazards in areas where there are conveyor belts or in recycling pits, specifically in the paper and cardboard recycling industries.
Truck Docking System (TDS)
The Truck Docking System (TDS) minimises any potential risks of harming personnel at loading docks.
