Wayne Chornohus: Manufacturers – responsible or irresponsible?
14 October 2004
Manufacturers wear many masks; they can be progressive and regressive. On one hand, they build some marvellous machines and products; on the other, they incorporate inferior, dangerous features. Almost every manufacturer deals in sleight of hand and illusion to help sell their product, ignoring or hiding weaknesses to the detriment of the end user.

Wayne Chornohus: Sound the alarm!
19 August 2004
Reversing alarms can be very effective in some situations - and very ineffective in others. Back-up alarms are necessary on many types of vehicle where the operator must reverse with his vision impaired. Many trainers and managers believe that back-up alarms are required on all forklifts. Canadian regulations state: "Mobile equipment in which the operator cannot directly, or by mirror or other effective device, see immediately behind the machine, must have an automatic audible warning device." This means that if an operator can see directly behind him, he doesn't have to have an alarm. What a great regulation - it makes sense in the real world.
