Dangerous situations between forklift and pedestrian, risk factors and options to reduce them

A forklift is an essential lifting equipment for moving, transporting and transferring more or less heavy loads in a factory or a large storage place. Although essential to speed up work and optimize employee performance, they can be dangerous if there are no specific instructions and limits for their use. Particular consideration must be given to pedestrians coming and going, whose behaviour can sometimes be unpredictable.

The laser for pedestrian crossing, effective and safe

Pedestrian safety is an important and vital point on any construction site or in any warehouse. Various signaling devices are then put in place to optimize the visibility of drivers and facilitate the movement of pedestrians on a well-defined area. The pedestrian laser is a more or less recent alternative that could replace in the near future, traditional lines drawn on the ground and stickers. Focus on this technique below.


Amendments to the Health and Safety Regulations (RSST)

Working conditions play a vital role in the safety and productivity of employees. There are also safety and health measures that must be put in place by employers and governed by specific regulations. These include the RSST or Regulation of Health and Safety at Work which is constantly undergoing reforms in order to optimize the welfare of workers. Changes have recently been implemented.
