Your front line warehouse employees are highly trained professionals. It takes a year or more to master the job and become fully productive. The loss of an employee to a workplace accident is devastating to her family, friends, work colleagues and you – her manager.
One type of warehouse accident that is especially crippling or fatal is stand up forklift underride. Underride occurs when a reach truck backs into a rack cross beam. The beam enters the operator’s cabin. The operator is crushed between the rack beam and the front of the cabin.
The Backbone for Reach Trucks is your solution. Tested and verified to be compliant with ANSI b56.1, it is a safety bar that provides a physical barrier between racking cross beams and the operator.
The Backbone is a lifesaver – and a cost saver. By equipping your fleet of reach trucks with The Backbone, you reduce the risk of costly lawsuits, workers’ compensation costs and claims, medical bills, trauma counselling for fellow team members and lost productivity.
But the real advantage is that she goes home to her family, alive and well, every day.
