Whenever people and machines have to work in the same area, risks exist for both parties. Machinery can often operate outside an employee’s line of sight, creating hazards for both staff and management.
When forklifts and people operate in close proximity, it is necessary to invest in systems which can protect staff from machinery injuries while also letting them get on with their work uninterrupted.
To fill this gap, Sitecraft offers an innovative channel rail solution to separate employees from forklifts. This system is completely modular, with no need for welding during the installation process.
One of the main benefits of these channel rails is the guard that is installed at foot height. With one of the main threats to employee wellbeing coming from forklift tines, these guards offer an important protection for staff. The galvanised channel is durable enough to prevent tines from hitting foot traffic.
For a stronger solution, Sitecraft also offers a heavy duty post and rail system. Although this does not contain a channel guard, they are still a durable and highly visible solution to meet your pedestrian management needs.
These systems are suitable for handling any traffic, from cars to forklifts and trucks. Their thick construction means that your staff can stay safe, while vehicle operations continue without interruption.
If you’d like assistance with selecting a forklift pedestrian segregation system or need help sourcing a handling solution, the Sitecraft industry experts are available to answer any queries you may have.
