Unloading a forklift, stacking a container with cargo destined for export, removing all stock from a warehouse…

All these and other similar actions tend to happen at times when visibility conditions are less than ideal or even at night. We know only too well that industry related tasks know no schedules or excuses and, as such, we must always be prepared to deal with them!

That’s why today we’d like to share the many possibilities offered by three of the solutions designed at Claitec. Three solutions that will help perform any tasks in low visibility areas without any risks and without exposing the integrity of our team members.

  1. The PAS System, an extremely useful tool that warns forklift drivers as it detects pedestrians at adjustable distances of 1 to 6.5 meters. All pedestrians need to do is carry electronic tags that alert the driver by sending light signals when a forklift senses them.

  2. The TDS Solution (Truck Docking System) considers the work dynamics of cargo trucks, and it aims at minimizing the operators’ risk of being run over. It comprises detection sensors, a control unit and traffic lights. Its mission is to warn the forklift driver, by means of the traffic light about the presence of operators in the manoeuvring space.

  3. The BS Solution (Blind Spots) is a system designed to improve traffic flow and to avoid accidents involving industrial use vehicles and preventing workers from being ran over. The BS solution for blind spots is particularly useful in loading and unloading areas and manoeuvring areas with poor visibility.

This solution indicates – by using traffic lights or previously installed warning lights – who has preference at industrial space intersections – be it drivers or be it workers on foot. Pedestrians must carry the tags, either in their key rings or with their identification cards, and so do forklifts. Tags will emit light signals when detected by an activator and the traffic light or warning indicator will indicate who has preference, thus avoiding accidents or risky situations.

Low temperatures are hitting the Northern Hemisphere right now making our work routines in loading docks, large storage spaces or on surfaces highly exposed to the cold more complicated than usual.

But not to worry! In this post we’d like to share some useful tips and tools to help you deal with harshly low temperatures.

First, let’s look at the risks that come with cold weather and how it can affect our work.

Thermal stress, hypothermia and freezing are some of the main problems associated with cold, presenting symptoms such as chills, fatigue, loss of coordination and confusion, respiratory conditions, and others.

So, what kind of measures can we take to prevent these risks?

First of all, it’s important to be very clear about the need to intervene on those factors that affect a person’s thermal balance.

Then, we must apply specific routines that support the operator in this environment. For example: organising and dividing tasks in a way that are less difficult for each operator, taking into account the need for exercise and mobility of all body parts and ingesting food and diets that are appropriate to these temperatures.

We must remember that technological solutions can become a great ally when working in complex circumstances such as low temperatures. For example, we should work with tools designed for work in areas with fog or low speed, or tools that have a special duration and capacity against the cold.

As earlier discussed in an earlier post, the PAS Pedestrian Alert System is one of the most recommended tools in very low temperature scenarios. This tool is extremely useful for protecting people, and it adapts very easily to any work scenario.

We should also highlight the LSA (Low Speed Area) System, designed to reduce the speed of vehicles inside cold rooms, for example, thus achieving much safer environments and greatly loweringthe probability of accidents of work.
