    Yale Vision telemetry helps encourage operators to adhere to safety regulations by restricting access to properly trained operators authorized by management, limiting truck performance based on operator experience and automating OSHA pre-shift checklists. The impact detection feature also sends real-time alerts to management, helping identify impact-prone areas of the facility and operators who could use additional training.
