Forensic Engineering Assessment Of Safety For Stand Up Forklifts
AbstractForklifts Operated From A Stand Up Position Rather Than A Seated Position Offer A Significant Advantage To Increase Warehouse Capacity. Stand Up Lift Trucks Can Be Operated In Warehouse Aisles As Narrow As 8 Feet. In Contrast, Traditional Sit Down Lift Trucks Typically Require Aisles Approximately 11 Feet Wide. This Paper Will Detail The Hazards Of Horizontal Intrusion And Lower Limb Injury For The Operators Of Stand Up Lift Trucks, Review Standards Related To Operator Protection Against Horizontal Intrusion And Lower Limb Injury, Summarize A Safety Engineering Analysis Of The Stand Up Lift Truck Design Including Guarding To Mitigate The Hazards, And Present Three Cases Tried To Jury Verdict Regarding Injury Accidents On Stand Up Lift Trucks.
