Hyster Container Forklift

Hyster Container Forklift

One of Hysters main safety concerns is safety. It is the reason why they offer numerous pieces of optional safety devices that can be included to either the work place or the machinery itself. Following the standards of OSHA, Hyster manufactures work and head lamps along with both visible and audible warning devices.

According to OSHA and ASME B56.1 regulations, the only warning device required on a lift truck is the horn on the steering wheel, which is a basic feature on all forklifts. Even though forklifts are not required to have visible or audible warning devices, there are several cases where optional warning devices may be appropriate. These factors are unique to each work site or work place and each case must be considered individually.

For audible safety devices, that are most frequently motion alarms or back-up alarms, the main factor to take into consideration is the level of noise made by the alarm. First of all, the audible device has to be distinguished from other sounds in the work site and the noise should be loud enough to be heard in the work location, even when other kinds of machines could be working. The ability for employees to hear alarms and know where the noise is coming from could be compromised if workers wear hearing protection devices. If the alarms are very offensive or disruptive to employees, nearby companies, or nearby houses, alarms may need to be disabled. If noise should be disabled, this must be able to take place readily. Rules also have to be followed so as to make certain that noise levels do not exceed OSHA noise limitations.

Visible safety devices might comprise the common flashing, strobe or rotating lights. Factors to consider with visible safety devices include whether or not these devices might be more appropriate than audible devices. Presence of reflective surfaces, operator distraction and workplace lighting are main concerns to consider to ensure that safety devices do not pose a danger to operators or other employees and are effective. Safety light colours should be different from other lights and background surfaces that are in the work place. Position of safety devices are of greatest importance. Lights should be able to clear any overhead obstacles. Position of lights should not cause the lights to shine or reflect into the operator's eyes, but shielding of the lights must not excessively block the light's visibility to pedestrians.

Hyster has a range of optional lights to meet numerous application requirements like halogen lights and weather-resistant LED that hold up through vibration and shock as well. When it comes to head lamps and work lamps, OSHA has set standards to make working in dark work areas or at night safer. Directional lighting is needed if the truck lighting makes less than 2 lumens per square foot. Hyster has numerous options that would really help increase visibility in low-light conditions.
