Industrial facilities, storage warehouses and distribution centers can be dangerous places. Safety challenges exist around every corner, from forklifts zipping around workers and materials, to hazardous machining processes that need to be guarded.
There are many products available to help keep your people safe while also satisfying safety regulations. How do you choose what’s best for your facility?
Sometimes a simple fixed vertical barrier is the solution to separate and protect a work zone from fork truck traffic. But if occasional access is needed now a retractable barrier is ideal.
Fork trucks need full access to a trailer at the loading dock but when the truck leaves, an unprotected dock drop off poses a serious hazard to fork trucks and others working on the dock.
Pallet drops on mezzanines can be dangerous because an open area exposes a dangerous fall risk for employees on the upper level. Blind corners and busy intersections pose a collision risk for pedestrians or fork trucks sharing the same space.
Rite-Hite has products that address each of these applications and help to keep your people safe all the time.
