As every year, April 28th marks World Day for Safety and Health at Work.

This year, the International Labor Organization (ILO) celebrates its centenary by taking stock of its work and by identifying new ways to continue improving safety and health in the workplace.

The ILO will also be presenting a global report that captures the evolution of occupational safety and health since before the institution´s foundation in 1919 until today, highlighting the main milestones achieved in this area.

The ILO´s global report will address changes in employment patterns, technology (digitization and CIT, work in digital platforms, automation and robotics), demography, globalisation, climate change and other drivers that affect the dynamics of safety and health and the nature of related professions. It will also tackle the risks as well as the recognised and recurring variations that persist in developing and developed countries.

For us, at Claitec, it is a key day in our calendar as we question our working methodology, the value we bring to our customers, our contribution and the main challenges that are still pending.

In our daily work, safety and health at work are key elements.

Our first concern is always the people we work with.

We cannot conceive solutions or tools that don´t look after each of the members of a team properly. Solutions inspired by real problems and by the need to improve. Solutions inspired in the idea of ​​providing our customers with products that help them achieve safer and more efficient industrial spaces.

The following examples are just some of the many solutions developed by our team with the goal of contributing to the improvement of safety and health at work:

  • The PAS system: Is a solution that warns drivers when a person is detected in distances between 1 to 6.5 meters. The PAS is a unique system capable of identifying people and objects, even operators located behind a wall or a shelf!
  • The VAS solution: The Visual Alert System is an innovative development that warns pedestrians and or forklifts in situations of risk by projecting signals on the ground.
  • The FPS system: A solution that prevents falls when working in hazardous areas. When a worker falls, the system stops the operation of the machine, avoiding even greater risks.
  • Anti-collision System CAS: A durable, robust and easy-to-install solution that warns drivers of the presence of a forklift when it detects another vehicle at distances of up to 25 meters. The CAS system is capable of detecting any type of industrial, helping prevent accidents or risks of impact.

If you´d like more information about these or any other of our solutions or if you have any questions, please don´t hesitate to contact us, we are here to help!

At Claitec we are convinced that in order to provide an excellent service that truly matches our customers’ needs, it’s imperative for us to constantly update ourselves as well as maintaining a proactive and innovative attitude.

One of our latest developments – the T-10R tag – is the result of this philosophy.

A cutting-edge tag that adds new qualities to the existing T-10, the new T-10R is a long-lasting active RFID device that can be placed in any person, equipment or active element in our industries and workspaces to be accurately detected by the AC-50 Activator and considerably improving accident prevention rates at work.

The T-10R features many outstanding qualities including its robust design and overall resistance, making it the perfect companion at the many demanding workplaces and activities in our industries and without running the risk of breaking down or generating faults.

In addition, the T-10R’s battery can be recharged wirelessly, adding even more comfort – and safety – for the operator by ensuring that the tag always has enough power.

The T-10R can be charged wirelessly using 2 types of chargers: a unitary wireless charger via USB and a charging station which can load up to 12 tags at a time.


And if that wasn’t enough, this new device comes with a high intensity LED lighting, which provides quick detection and ensures the visibility of the person or the asset carried by the tag. The light generated features a 360° angle which can be perceived from anywhere in the environment in which it is located. In addition, you can know your battery status at any time by means of the status LED.

The T-10R tag is an easy to carry small device with an added vibration system that provides extra warning signals to operators in the presence of a nearby vehicle and other potential risks. The tag also generates a high intensity sound warning, offering a wide range of warning possibilities.

Not to mention that the duration of this battery can go on for over a month! Of course, always depending on its usage levels and other related factors.

Industrial vehicles/elevators and pedestrians coexist every day in our work spaces.

To minimise the potential risks that this coexistence brings about, we must rely on safety solutions that provide operators with the greatest possible guarantees and create an efficient and modern work space.

 

And that’s precisely our mission at Claitec.

Proof of it is the latest success story by one of our most renowned customers, Toyota.

The car manufacturing giant combined Claitec’s PAS and VAS Systems to solve a need developed by OEZ Letohrad of the Siemens group, which produces automatic compact switches for customers around the world.

 

In this case, Toyota evaluated the occupational safety threats present in the mentioned firm and offered a solution to avoid the risk of possible collisions between loading equipment and employees in unsafe places and areas with high volume of traffic, such as crossings and corridors.

The proposed solution consisted in combining a VAS (Visual Alert System) projector with the PAS technology.

 

The VAS solution is an innovative development designed to warn pedestrians and/or forklifts of potential risk situations by projecting signals on the ground.

While the PAS system warns drivers when a person is detected in distances of 1 to 6.5 meters. It’s a unique system capable of discriminating people and objects, and even detecting operators who are behind a wall or a shelf.

 

The solution generated for OEZ Letohrad consisted in projecting a warning image on the ground when a pedestrian arrives at a crossing and a dangerous situation is detected.

Similar to a traffic light, it warns about accessing the area and it indicates to the person arriving at that intersection that there is a forklift operating in his or her proximity and inviting them to be careful and act with caution.

 

The installed system can detect a forklift that is outside the circulating lane and invisible through the panoramic mirrors (which are often placed too high to be seen or not used by operators).

The projector, on the other hand, emits its signal directly on the ground making it a lot easier to be detected by drivers who, therefore are able to circulate more safely and more protected.

The company installed the devices in nine forklifts and placed 13 projectors in total, ensuring a total of twelve spots. The intervention was carried out in just a few days.

Noise is generally defined as an “inarticulate, usually disagreeable sound”.

And that’s exactly what we’d like to talk about in this post – Noise!

 

Our aim is to highlight the areas that need to be taken care of in order to avoid noise pollution in the industrial sector and to help improve the workspaces we spent most of our days at.

Industrial work generates a large and almost inevitable amount of noise.

Only the ignition and start-up of any truck or machine contaminates a workspace from a noise point of view. Then, there’s the noises that are generated when loading and unloading large objects and merchandise. The handling of different tools and machineries…

 

Even people’s conversations!

All of these are aspects that add “inarticulate and disagreeable sounds” in a workspace, and that we can’t ignore.

So, we know that there are noises that are inherent to our daily functioning and that in a way, these are inevitable. But we can certainly generate an importante change and a real improvement in the way in which we normalise those situations and how we act in consequence.

 

Orientation and training of personnel in these matters is key.

 

It is essential that the members of the organisation understand the impact that overbearing noise has on health, so that they can be more cautious and try to have a lesser impact around them. In addition, it is of paramount importance that they know how to protect themselves against loud noises and measure their exposure to them.

We must bear in mind that noise can generate chronic health problems, and that being exposed to high levels of noise can end up causing the loss of the sense of hearing.

It is also important to rely on professionals to help us identify – with the appropriate tools – the main elements generating disturbing noises, so that we can start working on them and finding the best way to minimise their impact on the work environment.

 

A simple way to measure noise in an industry is to start a conversation with another person at arm’s length. If it is not really possible to maintain a conversation in a normal tone and you’re forced to shout in order to understand what is being said, it is clear that noise levels need to be reduced.

A high noise situation can also be dangerous because, for example, an operator may not hear a task partner when he or she gives an emergency warning or tries to warn them about an urgent situation.

 

It is also important to provide operators with the necessary equipment to protect themselves – be it earplugs or earmuffs – and stop the most intense sounds in their workspace. However, these methods are indicated by the experts as least efficient, while it is recommended to work as a priority on the initial cause of noise, and the other aspects mentioned above.

The team at Claitec has just returned from a new edition of the Logimat fair and we are still can’t believe the incredible experience we’ve just lived!

Once again, this important event in the field of Intralogistics and Process Management Solutions has exceeded everyone’s expectations, leaving us with many different learning and enriching experiences.

 

During the fair – held from February 19 to 21 in Stuttgart, Germany -, we were proud to receive hundreds of visitors to our stand, where we had the opportunity to present our products and highlight their benefits for operational and industrial safety.

 

Participation in the event has been very positive in all respects, but possibly the biggest takeaway for us has been the assurance that our products are at the forefront of the industry and at that we perform at the highest possible level in terms of workplace industrial safety solutions and technological development.

Logimat was, once again, an event of global reference in the field of industrial safety and prevention. Logimat’s goals were exceeded, confirming its growth and relevance for all participants in the field, We feel very proud to have been able to participate and to obtain such positive response, as you can see in this video.

 

These were some of the products we presented at Logimat:

 

  • The innovative T-10R Tag: The T-10R Tag is a protection device that can be placed on any person or asset in industrial environments and workspaces, allowing them to be accurately detected. It improves the prevention rates of impacts and accidents at work.

 

  • The tag T-10R Badge is a protection device that can be placed on any person or asset in industrial environments and workspaces, allowing them to be accurately detected. It improves the prevention rates of impacts and accidents at work. It incorporates a card holder, combining RFID technology and access control functionality.

 

  • The new CAS-G2 application: Our traditional solution for forklift detection and presence warning has been reinvented to provide even better results in the prevention of accidents. The new system improves forklift location and gives drivers faster notice when it detects another vehicle in its proximity. Visitors at Logimat showed great interest in the CAS-G2 application as an anti-collision system between forklifts and AGV (automatic pallet movement machines without driver).

 

  • Claitec’s VAS (Safety Alert Visualisation) solution: A device presented at the beginning of November in Sweden at the Logistik Transport 2018 Trade Fair – the main transport and logistics fair in Scandinavia. Claitec already exhibited this tool in Sweden and it consists of a device that warns pedestrians and/or forklifts of risk situations by projecting signals on the ground. It is a very innovative system, but one of great interest for the industry given its potential to improve job safety.

 

  • Wireless charging station: A charger designed to supply 12 T-10R Tags. A very useful tool for companies with a large workforce. This development allows for an automated and very simple loading of the tags, avoiding human errors such as forgetting to check the load.
