The VAS (The Visual Alert System) solution is an innovative system that warns pedestrians and / or forklifts in risk situations by projecting signals on the ground. This modern system has been achieving great results and is highly requested by our customers for their work spaces.

This solution – which consists of warning projections on the ground as those seen in the video -, is highly innovative and makes a real difference when organising the traffic of pedestrians and forklifts in our industries.

We have seen time and time again that the implementation of this solution in a workspace considerably reduces the number of occupational accidents, it alerts operators and it keeps them informed about situations that require attention more efficiently than other solutions.


It’s important to remember that the projector’s lenses can come in either one, two or three colours and the projected symbol is customisable. Some examples of what can be projected are:

  • A forklift.
  • A pedestrian.
  • A STOP warning sign.
  • A crosswalk.
  • A speed limit sign.
  • A “no smoking” notice or an indication that mobile use is prohibited.
  • Among many other options…


This system stands out over other warning and signalling options because:

  • It is easier to visualise and therefore more effective. Ground projections have better visibility than those projected at height.
  • They are more efficient than panoramic mirrors. When the projector emits its signal on the ground it’s easier to get people’s attention.
  • It provides a much more direct and easy warning to workers, who can circulate more safely.

There are other advantages to the VAS system which we highlighted in this recent article.  

The many benefits of this system are the reason why more and more customers choose to have this tool installed in their workplaces.

One of the aspects our customers tend to value most from our range of safety tools is their ability to be combined and integrated into their daily work to achieve much more efficient and safe processes that greatly impact the reduction of occupational accidents.

In this regard, today we’d like to talk about four different solutions that work in perfect harmony to improve the operation and safety in heavy machinery entry and exit spaces in our industries.

  1. Solución TCS (Traffic Control System). This solution issues a proper warning when pedestrians enter the heavy machinery transit zone. Ideal for separating operators from trucks/forklifts, Through the use of traffic lights, signalling beacons, safety gates and railings, drivers and operators can be notified of each other’s presence so as to prevent accidents.

  2. TDS Solution (Truck Docking System). A tool specially designed to assist drivers, particularly during loading and unloading manoeuvres at the docks. This solution takes into account the intense work dynamics in these spaces and stands out for its durability and resistance, having achieved very good results among our clients.

  3. LSA Solution. A tool designed to limit vehicle speed in cargo spaces and, consequently, to help prevent accidents. The LSA Solution is an electronic system specially designed to complement the safety tools of cargo vehicles and to reduce their speed in areas where operators or other pedestrians appear on foot. It is certainly of key importance in spaces where there’s a lot of movement as those mentioned.

  4. And finally, Collision avoidance system (CAS-G2). A state-of-the-art tool that adapts perfectly to heavily trafficked spaces and serves to reduce accidents caused by collisions of cargo vehicles. It is a driver support system that provides more information about the space through which it circulates, and it allows the person in charge of the vehicle to know where other trucks/forklifts are located.

When talking about occupational health and safety and the prevention of industrial accidents, there is a key reference that is well worth knowing and keeping in mind – the United States Department of Labor Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
That’s why in this post and in future instalments, we would like to discuss its role and other relevant aspects of this organisation what are relevant to the safety of your business.

The objective of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is “to guarantee safe and healthy working conditions for working men and women by establishing and enforcing standards and providing training, outreach, education and assistance”.

OSHA’s standards are rules that “describe the methods that employers must follow by law to protect their employees against hazards.” According to the administration itself, before OSHA can issue a safety standard, this must be subjected to an extremely broad and lengthy process that includes a high degree of public participation, notification, and evaluation.  

The construction, marine, agricultural, and general industry standards issued by OSHA protect employees from a wide range of serious hazards. Among other things, these standards limit the amount of hazardous chemicals that employees can be exposed to, it dictates the use of certain safe practices and equipment, and it requires employers to keep certain hazards in the workplace under control.

Some examples of OSHA’s standards are:

  • The requirements to provide fall protection.
  • To prevent landslides during ditching activities.
  • To prevent exposure to some infectious diseases,
  • To ensure the safety of employees entering restricted spaces.
  • To prevent exposure to such harmful chemicals as asbestos and lead.
  • To install safety guards on machinery.
  • To provide respirators or other safety equipment.
  • To offer training for certain dangerous jobs, as detailed by the agency itself on its website.

OSHA’s standards promote greater care in the occupational safety and protection of operators against occupational accidents – something which is very much in line with the measures Claitec enforces on a daily basis.

One of the most common questions we get asked by our customers is whether Claitec offers high visibility vests to assist in the safety and accident prevention in our industries.

To answer this pressing question, in this post we would like to discuss the perfect solution – a vest with a pocket specially designed to insert a T-10R Tag for the detection of people.

A high visibility safety vest with a built-in pocket for the T-10 and T-10R Tags, which is available at very affordable costs with significant discounts for wholesale purchases.

The vest comes with a unique functionality that locks the pocket where the tag is contained to ensure that the operator does not remove it or loses it, providing additional protection and avoiding the risk of any distractions. This function consists of a plug and a nail as the locking mechanism and its corresponding decoupler. These ensure that the person carries the T-10R at all times. Only an authorised person or person in charge can remove the tag from the vest.

The positive impact of the use of these vests is very clear as they make operators very visible and noticeable to the rest of the people, avoiding accidents with forklifts or other large machinery, and improving overall health and safety in our industries.

It’s important to bear in mind that the T-10R Tag is a highly technological tool in itself that perfectly complements any of the other safety systems in any industry and it fulfils the bidirectional function of alerting both the pedestrian and the forklift.

The Tag T-10R is a long-lasting active RFID device that can be placed on any person and on any active equipment or element in our industries and workspaces, thereby allowing it to be detected accurately by the AC-50 Activator. This tool has three alert systems – Visual, with powerful LEDs, and acoustic with an audible Beep and Vibration.

Among the various qualities of the T-10R Tag it’s important to highlight its robust design and overall endurance, which makes it suitable to withstand the daily whirlwind of our work spaces and to expose itself to different blows or movements typical of our activities, without running the risk of being damaged or generate failures. In addition, the T-10R has a battery that can be recharged wirelessly, adding more comfort and safety for the operator, as it ensures that the tag has enough energy all the time.

One of the questions we most frequently get asked by our customers pertains to the maximum speed forklifts should be circulating to prevent work accidents. This is a natural concern given that the daily work dynamics increasingly involves the coexistence of operators with several of these heavy vehicles in the same space. This forces us to establish parameters and general operating regulations to improve occupational safety and prevent workplace accidents.

There is no regulation establishing a specific speed range, although many safety managers rely on the technical notes published by INSHT institutes in each country. In general, it is considered acceptable to maintain a speed circulation of 20 km/h in open outdoor spaces, and a limit of 10 km/h in indoor spaces where pedestrians coexist regularly.

At Claitec we have also developed a range of solutions that keep forklift operators safe at all times.

Solutions like the Pedestrian Alert System (PAS), a tool that alerts drivers when it detects a person at adjustable distances from 1 to 6.5 meters. It is a unique system capable of differentiating people from objects, and even detecting operators behind walls or shelves!

The PAS System minimises the number of accidents, reduces the risk of being run over, and generates safer and more efficient work environments. It can be easily complemented with other safety systems.

Another option is the LSA Solution, an electronic safety device which limits the circulation speed of forklifts. It is specially designed to complement the safety tools of the vehicle and to reduce its speed in areas where there are operators on foot. This solution is a great ally to help you reduce accidents and collisions between vehicles, often caused by speeding.

Once the LSA Solution is installed, its operation is remarkably simple, and it does not require any action from the operator. The forklift that is equipped with this system reacts when entering an area in which its use was determined, and it activates a signal that forces it to adapt to the established limit, which can be selected as either “slow” or “fast”.

Beyond the above, our safety technician – a professional with extensive experience in the matter and in constant contact with factories and warehouses -, recommends analysing each specific case to adopt the most appropriate safety measures in each company.

In addition, there are some factors to consider to ensure you are making an appropriate decision:

  1. Forklifts of different types or manufacturers differ in size, weight, and construction materials. These characteristics must be taken into account to establish the proper speed of the vehicle – the heavier the vehicle, the lower the speed should be.

  2. The condition of the aisles through which the trucks circulate must also be taken into account. The surface resistance and its anti-slip ability will determine the distance necessary to brake the vehicle.

  3. Another element of essential importance is the visibility of the driver. Driving speed should be slower in areas of poor visibility.

  4. Ramps, curves, and road obstacles should be considered. The speed of the truck must be lower as the inclination of a ramp increases. Also, quick turns should be avoided at all times.

  5. Once the appropriate speed limit has been determined in each case, it will be necessary to guarantee its compliance by all operators. Effective communication with employees is essential to achieve this goal. And it is advisable to sign at appropriate intervals and places the agreed speed limit, as a reminder for drivers.

The safe, agile and efficient circulation of operators is of vital importance in our industries. Guaranteeing the integrity of the people who are part of our teams and achieving safe spaces is key as it will not only provide us with better results, but it will also decrease the number of accidents at work.

In this post we’ll discuss three systems that allow for a safer pedestrian circulation in our industries.

1) VAS System:

Firstly, our Visual Alert System, an innovative development that warns pedestrians and/or forklifts of any risk situations by projecting signals on the ground. Such signals are very visible to operators and easy to detect. They are extremely useful in spaces with highly frequent pedestrian traffic. The floor signs are a lot more effective than the  panoramic mirrors and the posters that are traditionally used in industries as these are generally placed too high to be seen or end up becoming part of the general landscape of the site, and people stop paying attention to them.

2) PAS System:

One of the most sought-after systems at Claitec, the Pedestrian Alert System (PAS) warns forklift drivers when a person is detected at adjustable distances of 1 to 6.5 meters. It is a unique system capable of discriminating between people and objects. It even detects operators who are behind a wall or a shelf! The PAS System minimises the number of accidents at work and reduces the very real risk of being run over in our industries. It generates a much safer and more efficient working environment for all. It also complements, in a very simple way, other safety systems.

3) PCS Solution:

A very useful and easy to deploy system, the Pedestrial Cross Safety Solution is designed to ensure the physical integrity of pedestrians in crossing spaces, and it can easily be applied throughout the industry. This tool signals the forklift through a system of traffic lights previously installed in a workspace of the presence and the eventual crossing of pedestrians in their area. It’s remarkable how easy the PCS Solution is to implement – apart from the traffic lights, pedestrians circulating in the workspace must carry small tags – similar to a key chain -, which will emit light signals when detected by a previously installed activator. That same activator sends the signal to the traffic lights, which then indicate the presence of the person.

This June 5 commemorates World Environment Day, an important date in a special and challenging year for our society. A year when we feel it’s more important than ever to emphasise the need to act responsibly towards our environment at every step we take in our industries. We must understand that the ecological factor should be a key element in our vision and a fundamental element to help us take better care of health and safety in our work spaces.

Claitec is 100% committed to the environment and we view businesses as key pieces to global environmental responsibility. For this reason, our quality and environmental management systems are certified in accordance with the requirements of ISO 9001: 2015 and 14001: 2015 for the activities of design, development and commercialisation of security systems for the protection of people.

We cannot conceive of a solution if it is not a truly environmentally responsible tool. And we cannot conceive it without generating a sustainability plan both for its manufacture and use and for its subsequent disposal. This is how we talk about it daily with suppliers, customers and the general public, and how we explain it in this earlier post about the life cycle of our products.

By way of summary, it should be remembered that the analysis of the life cycle of a product consists of the detailed analysis of each of its phases in order to detect whether or not it generates an environmental impact. In a typical product, the phases that are analysed are: Composition (chemical products and raw materials), Manufacturing (chemical products and process), Distribution, Use of the product and End of life.

In addition, we also feel it’s very important for all industries to have their own environmental management and environmental responsibility plans, and we invite all of us to be aware and take action in this regard.

There are simple steps that we can take in each of our routines, and that can undoubtedly generate a contribution of enormous value. Responsible energy consumption, recycling policies and efficiency and impact reduction policies are just some of the issues to consider, as we also discussed in this other post.

In the face of the Covid-19 pandemic, businesses returning to work need to reinvent themselves in order to minimise the risk of spreading the virus. More than ever it is imperative we maintain respect and solidarity between people in order to return to work in this “new normal” that appears to be here for a long time.

The team at Claitec wants to contribute to these challenging times with a proactive attitude, introducing new proposals to ensure that the industry goes on and it’s able to continue to work safely and with all possible health guarantees.

According to all experts, while there’s no efficient vaccine to alleviate the disease, the best way to minimise infections between individuals is to maintain a physical distance.

That’s why today we would like to present our new T-10R SD (Social Distance sensor) solution based on our T-10R system. We have modified it to alert workers when the preprogramed safety distance protocols are breached.

1. What is the T-10R SD system?

The T-10R SD is a proximity monitoring solution designed to maintain the physical distance established between people within the same workplace (offices, warehouses, logistics centres, workshops, etc.).

2. What devices can be it used with? We have two solutions.

The T-10RSD tag is a long-lasting active RFID device intended to ensure a safety perimeter of 2m between people (the distance recommended by health authorities).


The T-10RSD Badge is an adaptation of the T-10RSD tag, which also acts as a card holder. The operator only needs to carry a single device that includes the safety tag and the personal identification card.



3. How does it work?

All the person needs to do is to carry the tag to establish a safety perimeter of 2 to 4m. When another person (who is also carrying the tag) enters the 4m safety perimeter, the tag will turn on the orange light as a warning signal.

If the person comes closer than the 2m social distance, the tag will beep and turn on the red light as a warning signal for people to physically separate and minimise the risk of spreading the virus.

Please note that the distances are configurable.

Las principales características de los tags son:

  • Adjustable distance sensor
  • Set-up button
  • Fall warning system
  • Non-movement warning system
  • Two-way communication
  • Rechargeable battery
  • High intensity LED lighting
  • Mute vibrator
  • High intensity audible warning
  • Waterproof, easy to clean.

In times of pandemic we need to ensure maximum safety and efficiency in our workplaces and Claitec wants to contribute by discovering and adapting new technological solutions that make our work lives safer.

It goes without saying that we live challenging times. We found ourselves in a context unimaginable until recently overwhelmed by great many fears and pressures, trying to keep everyone around us safe, our families and the community at large. In this context – in a world full of tension – it’s important to remember the core principles of our industries. We should not forget the importance of keeping within the parameters that govern our work in order to guarantee safety and health in our work spaces.

For this reason, we would like to make use of this space to remind everyone involved in our industries to stay safe at work. Your safety is essential, so please take care of yourselves – that is the message we need to emphasise, over and over again.

The pressures, the difficulties, the added distractions cannot make us forget something as important as respecting workers’ safety norms. If we neglect ourselves, we risk the most important thing.

Obviously, work dynamics are changing all around us these days: mandatory distances, work shifts in smaller teams, more complete protective equipment – everything is different and we must adapt. But beyond that, the usual safety parameters cannot be altered. We must continue to provide greater access to safety tools and protocols which give operators the possibility of carrying out their task without facing great risks or jeopardising their integrity.

Safety tools – such as those developed here at Claitec – fulfill a fundamental task, always providing support to our operators.

Let’s not forget that technology can play a key role right now and help us make the task easier and safer.

Governments, employers, workers and societies worldwide face a huge challenge in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, which is why the World Health and Safety at Work Day (which is commemorated every year on April 28) will focus this year on addressing infectious disease outbreaks at work, with special attention to the current coronavirus pandemic.

The continued increase in COVID-19 infections in some countries and the presence of Illness throughout the world generates fear and great uncertainty. Industries have been hard hit and from different perspectives by this reality. Beyond the immediate crisis, there is also a concern to resume activity, so progress made in the suppression of transmission is maintained.

In this framework, and as we reach the World Day for Safety and Health at Work on April 28, we should all call ourselves to accept a new reality and incorporate new habits and routines that protect us against infectious diseases.

This year the goal of the International Labor Organization (ILO) is to stimulate the National Tripartite Dialogue on Occupational Health and Safety and take advantage of this day to raise awareness of the adoption of safe practices in the workplace, while showing the role that health and safety services play in the workplace (SST).

This day will also focus on the medium and long term efforts, including recovery and future-proof, in particular the integration of measures into systems and OSH management policies at national and business level.

More information on this topic can be found on the International Labor Organization’s website where it is also outlined that the earlier announced 2020 theme of the World Day – on violence and harassment at work – has now been replaced in view of the current global health crisis.

Clearly this reality calls us to be responsible in our work in the industry, and to adopt measures that are up to the circumstances, being aware that occupational safety and health can really save lives, and that only with a collective effort can we end this pandemic.
