Operational Safety

Forklift Collision Avoidance Systems and Proximity Detection

The safety in a warehouse is high priority. According to the Bureau of Labour Statistics, a worker died every 111 minutes from a work-related injury in 2020, of those 30% due to transport-related accidents. Forklifts are powerful and heavy pieces of equipment, to prevent fatalities collision avoidance and proximity alert systems need to be installed.

Forklift fleet management systems are designed to provide real-time information on every aspect of forklift operations. These systems integrate software and hardware components, including GPS tracking, operational sensors, and data analytics tools, to monitor the performance and usage of each forklift within a fleet. The goal is to maximize efficiency, ensure safety, and extend the lifespan of the equipment through better management practices.

Key benefits of forklift fleet management

Operational efficiency: Tracking the usage and performance of forklifts to optimize routes within a warehouse or scheduling forklift use to avoid bottlenecks.

Maintenance and upkeep: Proactive maintenance can alert managers to potential issues before they become significant problems, based on data collected from sensors on the forklifts.

Safety enhancements: These systems can monitor for unsafe behaviors, such as speeding or unauthorized use, and enforce compliance with safety protocols.

Data analytics and reporting: Fleet management systems can provide insights into every aspect of fleet operation, from individual driver performance to overall fleet efficiency. This data can then be used to make informed decisions, improving both short-term operations and long-term strategic planning.

Where to buy forklift management fleet systems

Forklift collision avoidance systems are an essential part of enhancing workplace safety by alerting forklift drivers and other workers to the presence of vehicles, personnel and obstacles.

Utilising electromagnetics, RFID, GPS or bi-directional radar (or in the case of PBE’s system, all four), facilities can configure these tracking methods to recognize different groups, such as vehicle types, personnel, or obstacles. Forklift fleet management systems are not a “one size fits all” solution, so Carroll Technologies works with customers to customize a warning system that is ideally suited for the application.

According to Carroll Technologies president Allen Haywood: “Facilities that just have one forklift want to make sure that they don’t collide with certain low hanging obstacles and avoid danger areas, it’s never just about collision avoidance with other forklifts, but also avoidance of personnel.

“Systems can be customized for a lot of different types of operations and programmed to set the parameters that they need. We can also incorporate remote opening gates and doors, as well as recordings of travel so that they can look back through history via mobile or desktop software. It can record everything that has been travelling, what speeds they have been travelling at, and any near misses.”
