If you had a feeling that we've been seeing a lot more product launches over the past year, the UK Fork Lift Truck Association has provided indirect evidence that innovation seems to have stepped up.
The association notes that it has received a record number of entries from companies across the globe for its Annual Awards for Excellence and has named 25 products in its short list.
The number of new products or updates in the past year must certainly run to three digits as we seem to cover at least one or two each week. And then there was the crop of new products at CeMAT and other shows.
What does this all mean? It must signify that things are looking up for the industry. Clearly, if the market was depressed, manufacturers would be hard-pressed spending on R&D, production retooling and marketing. So the plethora of product must indicate a healthy state of affairs, which is supported by the recent positive financial results and outlooks we have reported.

Easy lifting with attachments
What if you have something that is not an ordinary load? Melissa Barnett takes a look at the world of attachments, why they are such vital pieces of materials handling equipment and how technology is influencing current attachment design.

Attachment manufacturers are born problem-solvers. Show them a load-lifting problem and they’ll more often than not find a solution. Lifting an awkward size or shape presents the forklift driver with a distinct set of problems; these are exacerbated when the load is large, heavy or bulky. Product damage is most commonly the result of a poorly lifted item, but safety and efficiency can also be compromised [Read the full report]

Prevent your staff from being hit or crushed by vehicles in the workplace
Even in regular working conditions, drivers can struggle to see what’s around their vehicle. When vehicles and pedestrians work near each other, blind spots and poor visibility conditions increase the chances of an accident. These accidents can be fatal. Families can lose their loved ones and you could even lose your business.

According to Michelle Baxter (SafeWork Australia CEO), “120,000 Australians are seriously injured at work each year and tragically 240 die as result of work related injuries.”

Pedestrians and vehicles don’t mix...and here is why:
A woman has been transported to an Auckland hospital in a serious condition after a forklift accident at a Rotorua manufacturing plant. Read the full article HERE.

If you want to make sure no one gets hurt and staff go home at the end of each day, the BodyGuard i-Tag is the perfect solution to improve safety around vehicles in the workplace.
