Safety innovations for constantly evolving operations

Safety is critical in the materials handling industry.

Industry statistics estimate that approximately one out of every 10 forklifts is involved in an accident in the United States each year, which can lead to serious injuries and deaths.

However, OSHA also estimates that approximately 70 percent of these accidents could be avoided through better adherence to standardized training and safety procedures. That significant reduction in accidents can, in turn, help decrease occupational injuries and associated costs.



Rather than using existing truck designs and outfitting them with new power options via battery box replacements, Hyster has introduced a lift truck designed around the form factor of a lithium-ion battery pack. This approach enables several ergonomic enhancements that can keep operators more comfortable and alert all shift long, and ultimately help contribute to operational safety.
