Next Thursday, April 28, we celebrate yet another World Day for Safety and Health at Work 2022, and this time the ILO invites us to focus on the importance of participation and dialogue for the creation of a positive safety and health culture.

As the organisation explains, during the pandemic it became clear that the participation of all parties as well as the broad and real commitment from all of us, is what truly generates results that end up being decisive for the improvement of environments and societies as a whole. Inspired by that example, we can now move forward in continuing to build workspaces that are safer, where the integrity of people is cared for and prioritised and risks and accidents at work are avoided.

At Claitec we firmly believe that this is one of the great keys to job safety. The commitment and participation of all make our environments better and safer. This is how we develop our solutions, taking a broad and comprehensive look at the industries and generating practical and effective tools to improve results.

This can be seen, for example, in this tour, where it becomes evident how the different Claitec solutions complement each other and provide safety in one single place. Similarly, we can see it in the way in which technology is applied to solve common problems or situations in any workspace, such as the ever-present need to organise traffic, as we can do with the PAS, VAS and PSG systems.

Should you have any questions or require our advice, please do not hesitate to contact us, we are here to help.

In our quest to improve health and safety at work we need to both pay attention to our customers’ requirements as well as finding creative solutions that provide real contributions to their work dynamics. In this post we highlight three of Claitec’s solutions that help improve safety and reduce workplace accidents in industries and workspaces from above.

Crossing Guard. An innovative and unique system developed by Claitec, this device is installed in the upper areas of warehouses to help avoid collisions or similar work accidents at intersections. When a vehicle or person approach an intersection, the crossing guard triggers a visual alert from the traffic lights and the projector to avoid a collision. The Crossing Guard system uses radar technology capable of differentiating between humans and forklifts and detecting whether the vehicle is approaching or leaving the intersection.

The VAS Solution. An innovative system that warns pedestrians and/or forklifts about potentially risky situations by projecting signals on the ground and organising the traffic of operators and vehicles. This solution has been achieving great results and is increasingly requested by our clients. It stands out for its ease of installation and durability.

Roof Radar. This innovative system is capable of detecting a roof when the vehicle enters a building and automatically reducing its speed until it leaves again. This very helpful device complements the safety features of the vehicle, generating safer workspaces and reducing the risks and possibilities of accidents.

Welcome to the team, Lluís!

We place our focus today on two products developed by Claitec that have been widely accepted by our customers over the last year and that stand out for their practical and effectiveness of their operation: the T-10R tags and T-10R Badge.

The Tag T-10R is an evolution of the T-10 Tag. The performance of the range radius and the ease of detection in the new device are dramatically improved. It also features a battery with a one month autonomy minimum and it is wirelessly rechargeable, making daily tasks a lot easier. The T-10R tag comes with a high-intensity LED lighting, which helps with rapid detection and it ensures the visibility of the person wearing the tag. With a 360° angle light, it can be seen from anywhere, upping the safety levels in our workspaces and preventing many occupational accidents.

In addition, the new tag has a vibration system, which is incorporated as a new alert channel for operators in the presence of another person or vehicle. And it also generates a high intensity sound warning, completing a wide range of alert forms that improve safety standards in our industries.

The T-10 R Badge, on the other hand, is the ideal solution for the protection and control of visitors in industries. It is currently being already widely used by our clients, providing very good results in improving work safety and the reduction of accidents.

Persons registering as visitors are given a T-10R Badge tag on the card with their credentials. What that means is that by only carrying a simple card the person is protected from forklifts and loading machines. The T-10 R Badge tag is an adaptation of the new T-10R tag but with the unique feature of being a card holder which makes it a lot more difficult for the operator or the person who is visiting to forget it or lose it.

Always conscious of the vital role that forklifts play in the daily work of our industries today, at Claitec we are constantly seeking to provide solutions that complement their operation, make them more effective and safer, facilitating drivers’ tasks, and ultimately, helping prevent accidents.

In today’s post we’d like to introduce you to one of the latest tools we have developed after listening to several of our clients’ suggestions. After learning about some of the problems they face and some of the accidents that occur because of the excess height in the load transported by the forklifts, we created an innovative tool known as the High load sensor HLS.

The HLS warns forklift drivers as soon as it detects that the loads picked up exceed the permitted heights or predefined measurements. Thanks to the light and sound signal sent to the driver if the load exceeds the maximum allowed, we now prevent unsafe movements that could lead to an accident.

In addition, the HLS Solution is presented as an ideal complement in the prevention of accidents in warehouse doors, a weak point managed today by installing a bidirectional Tz2 Tag on the warehouse doors and incorporating the PAS System on the forklifts. These solutions make it possible for drivers to be warned when a vehicle approaches a door that is closed or not fully open.

If you have any questions, if you want to know more about our solutions or if you require our advice, do not hesitate to contact us.

One of Claitec’s key missions since its inception has been to continuously improve the safety and health standards in all industries, as well as to prevent work accidents involving operators and machinery. We do so by comprehensively understanding the workspaces we work with, and developing solutions that complement each other, creating safer places and providing better results for our clients.

In this video we invite you to discover how some of our solutions can be perfectly integrated and work harmoniously in a workspace to achieve greater safety and efficiency. We suggest you imagine a journey through the industry and appreciate how the different solutions are activated:

Your journey starts with a forklift travelling around a warehouse to unload a truck. Shortly after, an operator leaves the safety zone to encounter the moving vehicle. This action automatically triggers the PAS System (Pedestrian Alert System), warning the driver that it detected a person nearby. This system can differentiate between objects and people, and it can detect an operator even behind a wall or a shelf.

Continuing with our tour, we notice another forklift entering the warehouse and immediately activating the innovative Roof Radar – a safety system that automatically reduces the speed of a vehicle as it enters a building. The way it works is that when the radar detects the ceiling, it automatically selects the low speed in the vehicle to regulate traffic and avoid accidents in closed spaces. When leaving the roof space, the Roof Radar deactivates on its own.

In that same depot we now see the TCS traffic control system in operation in action. A pedestrian is moving through his safety zone until reaching a crossing where the Pedestrian Safety Gate (PSG) indicate he must stop as a forklift is in circulation. As soon as the vehicle has gone, the traffic light turns green, and the Pedestrian Safety Gate (PSG) allow our pedestrian to move forward.

The vehicle then comes to an intersection just as another forklift approaches. It is at this moment that our CAS-G2 System is activated, a tool designed to avoid collisions between forklifts. This system allows a vehicle to detect another with the same solution already installed, alerting drivers to take the necessary precautions. The CAS-G2 has a configurable range of up to 40 meters, and it can detect vehicles even in blind spots.

Then, we see a forklift moving down an aisle loading or unloading merchandise. When it reaches the end of the aisle, and as it converges on a main warehouse’s path, the risk of a collision in this treacherous location increases considerably. That’s when the Crossing Guard System comes into action, warning from above through visual alerts – be it traffic lights, blue spot projection or the VAS Projector (safety alert display) to alert the driver about whether or not he has rite of passage permit, guaranteeing its integrity.

We can also see how the NAS system provides safety in that same warehouse as in all warehouses with narrow aisles, minimising the risk of collision between forklifts in areas with reduced spaces. If a forklift intends to enter an aisle where another vehicle is already operating, it will immediately be warned by a traffic light signal indicating that it cannot continue its course. If the forklift remains in the aisle, the traffic light will indicate its presence in the area to the rest of the vehicles or pedestrians approaching the place.

Today’s tour concludes with the TDS System in action for unloading of vehicles – a safety system which minimises the risks of being run over at loading docks. This tool consists of a traffic light that warns the forklift driver when operators are present. In this case, the dock is equipped with detection sensors, which emit signals that the traffic light passes on to the operators and drivers, avoiding risks and accidents.

The link between forklifts and accidents at work and occupational safety concerns is widely known in the industrial sector. Claitec works tirelessly to address this situation and improve the way in which these vehicles interact with people in workspaces.

Our experience and our clients’ in this regard has proven that the following five aspects are key to preventing forklift-related accidents:

  1. Drivers’ poor training. We have been witness time and again to the lack of appropriate training in operators who must drive a forklift for hours on end. Investing in driver education and training should be a priority, as well as equipping them with a number of complementary tools that assist their task, such as the PAS Pedestrian Alert System, to mention an example. Investing in this type of safety tools will reduce accidents and achieve better results.

  2. Driving speed. The recommended driving speed is less than 5 miles per hour (about 8 km/h). Driving at higher speeds and irresponsibly robs the vehicle of its ability to react to unforeseen events and it increases the risk of accidents. The LSA Solution for low-speed areas is ideal to keep the driving speed under tabs.

  3. Operating an overloaded forklift. A very risky way of driving as it impacts both the driver’s visibility and the vehicle’s ability to control and respond, causing extremely risky accidents. Claitec’s high load sensor HLS is an extremely helpful tool designed to control the load and minimising risks while driving.

  4. Workspace design. Sharp curves, zero viewing angles, or narrow aisles are very common causes of workplace accidents. We often see forklifts overturning or crashing at dangerous intersections. Claitec’s BS Solution for blind spot areas minimises the risk of collision between forklifts and pedestrians while reducing collisions in areas of limited visibility.

  5. Lack or scarcity of traffic warnings and signs. A key factor to industrial safety is to clearly indicate forklift circulation areas, especially in those places where these vehicles coincide with operators on foot. However, the necessary signs are very often not placed in the appropriate places, or these are not reviewed and updated according to the different functions of the spaces. Industries can address this issue with solutions such as the Crossing Guard – to avoid collisions at intersections -, or the VAS System – which warns pedestrians and/or forklift drivers of risk situations – by projecting signs on the floor.

One of our missions at Claitec is to keep our team and processes in a continuous state of improvement. We are constantly searching for and designing new ways to strengthen our tools and enhancing our portfolio. The product we are proud to present today is the result of this tireless search. Our new long-range antenna reinforces the capabilities of our solutions and provides different alternatives for the control of safety in our workspaces, helping to reduce and avoid workplace accidents.

The new long-range antenna is compatible with all of Claitec’s vehicle, people and property detection systems. It emits a LF field that warns of the presence of people or machinery within its range.

This new type of long-distance antenna is installed in the vehicle or machine that incorporates the PAS (Pedestrian Alert System) and thanks to its new design, it is now capable of detecting at a range of up to 11 meters, compared to the standard LF antenna’s detection range of up to 6,5 meters.

In other words, with the new antenna we are expanding the use of the different Claitec systems – particularly in larger vehicles (over 3,5 tons and higher speeds) -, and in situations where more detection distance is required.

Claitec’s new antenna features several characteristics that make it ideal for work in industrial environments:

  • IP67
  • Temperature range from -40ºC to + 85ºC
  • High degree of shock absorption
  • Easy installation thanks to its integrated support, among others points in its favour

Strengthening the PAS and TCS Systems.

The Pedestrian Alert System (PAS) is a solution that warns truck drivers when it detects a person at adjustable distances. This unique system is capable of differentiating between people and objects, and it even detects workers who are behind a wall or a shelf. The PAS is highly used and valued by our customers, and now, thanks to this new antenna, we are almost doubling its range capacity, going from 6,5 to 11 meters in total.

AThis new antenna also provides extremely positive results for the TCS Solution (a Traffic Control System that differentiates pedestrians and forklifts in the same workspace), allowing for broader controls, earlier warnings and improving the coexistence of machines and people, thus reducing risks and avoiding workplace accidents.
