AGVs and forklifts gaining sight for safety
from Material Handling & Logistics
Forklifts and automated guided vehicles are useful tools in factories and distribution facilities. With regard to worker safety, however, there are issues to keep in mind when using either manned or automated powered industrial vehicles. Occupational Safety and Health Administration states that someone gets killed every three days in a forklift accident, that almost 80 percent of the 110,000 annual forklift accidents involve a pedestrian, and that it costs the U.S. over $135 million per year.
