What You Will Learn

While IoT technologies and applications are expanding at a dramatic rate in industrial environments, Employee Safety is an often overlooked and under-represented piece of the IoT puzzle. Operating industrial trucks has inherent safety risks, and forklift-related safety incidents represent perhaps the largest risk center for material handling operations. In fact, there are nearly 100 forklift accidents each day that result in a serious injury. IoT technologies provide companies with new tools to help keep truck operators and other employees safe, reduce the risk of major safety incidents, reduce impacts and damage by 95%, and ensure regulation compliance.

Key Takeaways

• Why improving workplace safety should be a critical element of your IoT implementation strategy.
• How to leverage IoT technology to monitor, analyze, and better control the safety of your material handling operation.
