Chris Mosby with Topper Industrial, recently discussed how one piece flow and small lot delivery can improve safety. One piece flow refers to the concept of moving one workpiece at a time between operations within a workcell. Mosby explores the top ten benefits of Fork Truck Free with one-piece flow and small lot delivery in a series.
A leading cause of workplace injuries is overexertion. Overexertion causes fatigue, which results in less productive employees, increased quality errors, and more accidents. Statistics show that overexertion injuries can happen to any worker, at any age, and in any work situation.
There are effective measures to successfully reduce the incidence and severity of overexertion injuries, such as optimize storage practices, use material-handling aids, and reduce the use of forklifts. OSHA statistics indicate that there are roughly 85 forklift fatalities and 34,900 serious injuries each year, with 42 percent of the forklift fatalities from the operator’s being crushed by a tipping vehicle. With fewer or no forklifts, manufacturers and distribution centers are reducing forklift accidents, a major cause of injuries and death in factories.
