The Paralift Systems Tilt Indicator excels in making the forklift training of operators much easier and more effective, thus reducing injuries and deaths. This invention actually puts "peripherial vision" to work so the operator has no need to take his eyes off the load to look at a level indicator. By expanding the scope of "peripherial vision," the operator naturally becomes MUCH safer, as opposed to other products designed to assist forklift operation, because of the lighted display. This product is expected to reduce new operator training time, increase operator confidence, increase proficiency and accuracy in a short period of time while attaining a higher skill level of operation than a forklift without the invention.
Even after training, experience is what makes an operator more successful. The most difficult area to master is the tilt function of the forklift. In many cases, the operator will still struggle with proper tilt handling especially in elevated positions. The higher the mast goes, the harder it is to achieve alighment. Paralift Systems LLC, has developed a product to assist the operator in achieving proper alignment.
Forklift Operators Can Kill Your Bottom Line:
Forklifts are indispensable to many businesses. Forklifts represent a large initial capital investment and they cost employers thousands of dollars to keep them running. As needed as they are, forklift operations often are a company’s greatest risk and liability. The damage a forklift can do to product, truck doors, racks, walls, and company facilities in general is staggering. Employers often pay thousands per year to repair the damage from forklift operations.
According to transportation loss and damage claims experts, the most common cause of load damage is forklifts. One reason is because there is pressure on the drivers for production, so they often do their jobs too quickly, which leads to damage. Even if they have received training on how to operate forklifts safely, they may work too quickly thus bypassing safe operations.
