Good to Go Safety Shortlisted for two Design4Safety Awards

The finalists for the 2016 Design4Safety Awards - run in parallel with IMHX by the British Industrial Truck Association - have now been decided across the six award categories encompassing all aspects of the materials handling industry.

The aim of the awards is to highlight the importance of product or service design in improving workplace safety standards. By focusing on ‘design for safety’ the awards recognise innovative thinking, regardless of the type or cost of the product or service.

There were six different categories which encompass the whole materials handling industry.

• Industrial Vehicles
• Automation
• Goods-in/Goods-out
• Racking & Storage
• Technology
• Warehouse infrastructure

Good to Go Safety has been shortlisted in the following categories:

Industrial Vehicles:
Forklift Safety Inspection

Good to Go Safety provides tagging and checklist systems for a range of industrial vehicles used within the logistics and materials handling industry and can be considered an integral tool in any preventative maintenance regime. By implementing regular equipment checks the chance of spotting a fault early is greatly increased.  Early detection of damaged or faulty equipment can help to prevent accidents and reduce maintenance costs whilst also ensuring that legislative obligations (eg.PUWER, LOLER, WAHR etc) are met.

With systems available for forklift trucks, scissor lifts, electric pallet trucks, fleet vehicles, tow trailers, excavators, tractors and MEWPs we certainly cater for most types of industrial vehicles you are likely to encounter in the workplace. Keeping them all running safely and efficiently can help prevent accident, reduce maintenance costs and avoid vehicle downtime.

The vehicle specific checklist allows critical components to be checked. Upon completion it is inserted into the tag for all to see (with a duplicate copy also retained for management/asset maintenance records). This visual aspect ensures everyone knows when an inspection has been completed along with the findings.

Racking & Storage:
Racking Checklist

Our range doesn't stop with vehicles, we also enable storage equipment to be checked and maintained too. Daily forklift checks are commonplace within the warehousing industry but we are keen to ensure that racking also receives the attention it deserves - after all if a collision goes unnoticed a scratch or dent on a forklift is less of a concern than a potential racking collapse (read our previous blog here for news on the possible consequences).

Regular visual checks of racking will help spot faults and make repairs before it's too late - too often companies overlook racking structures as they see them as part of the building. In addition to our racking systems we also offer checklists for stepladder, forklift platforms and overhead cranes to help maximise racking and storage safety.
