Operator lighting

Do low light areas challenge your operation? The right truck-mounted light options can help enhance operator visibility and productivity, and subsequently help minimize associated truck, product and facility damage. Give your operators a clear eye on the tasks at hand with work lights, dome and compartment lights or work lights or lamps.

Audible warning

Does your busy operation struggle with lift truck operators working in proximity to one another and to pedestrians? Provide warning to nearby equipment operators and pedestrians when they are close to a truck in motion. Help enhance truck proximity awareness with backup alarms or motion-based alarms.

Learn about alarms

OSHA does not require the use of visible or audible alarms on lift trucks, but they may be helpful in certain operating conditions. Please note that in some situations, visible or audible alarms may be a distraction, and habituation can lessen their effectiveness. Also, the effectiveness of visible alarms is significantly or even entirely reduced in outdoor daylight conditions. Consider performing a site evaluation to determine if visible or audible alarms would be helpful at your facility.
