|Safe access for loading pallets by forklift on platforms
Kilwaughter Chemical Company reviewed the safety of their forklift truck loading operations. They developed a new design that consisted of a fixed loading position on a platform. Access to the platform is protected by a mechanical interlock system of barriers. This prevents the operator from entering the platform when the guard rail is removed to allow the forklift truck to load, and ensures that the guard rail is in place when the operator has access.
• Removes the risk of falls from height
• The operator is more relaxed working in a safer environment.
