TMHE’s SpotMe System Reduces Warehouse Accidents

651 views

Published on

To create safer warehouses for customers and employees, Toyota Material Handling Europe (TMHE) introduces its new risk prevention initiative: the SpotMe warning system.

Specifically designed to decrease traffic accidents in warehouses, SpotMe is equipped with infra-red sensors that capture the presence of forklifts and pedestrians at crossroads. Its prominent alternating flashing lights warn both forklift drivers and workers that there is danger of potential collision round the corner.

Being alerted of one another’s presence enables them to take the necessary measures of precaution in time. As a result, workers, goods and forklifts are protected and daily business runs safer and smoother.

SpotMe is easy to use and simply fixes to walls.
