There’s a saying about not sending a boy to do a man’s job, and when it comes to large loads, that means using special equipment. This week’s special report looks at the unique demands associated with heavy lifting and the specialised forklifts which meet those needs.
We read that it’s not just about size. Increasingly, there are also safety and environmental issues and, of course, the need for fuel efficiency.
Enjoy the detailed report - and the rest of this week’s news.

Maintain your safe work reputation with leading driver awareness system
Typically in a workplace where vehicles and pedestrians are in close proximity, safety between vehicles is enhanced by a set of traffic rules that rely on human compliance (such as give way rules). Often this reliance on drivers to obey the rules, make correct judgments or see vehicles in their path is not enough.

However, to all these difficulties there is remedy; BodyGuard “iTAG” provides an exclusion zone around the vehicle that is adjustable from around 2m to 7m. When a person wearing a special “iTag” device is detected, the driver is warned by an audible and visual alarm in the cab, giving an opportunity to avoid an incident.

Improve workplace safety | Reduce downtime | Avoid costly investigations | Maintain your safe work reputation.  
For more information go to orbitcoms.com/BodyGuard.php, or send an email.
