Fork Lifts + Telehandlers + EWP's

LSM Technologies SafetyViewDetect® Systems are the Camera Viewing / Proximity Detection solution for Forklifts, Large Fork Trucks, EWP's / Scissor Lifts,  and Telehandlers operating in many industries and applications as Warehouses, Mining, Steel, Timber Yards, etc so as enhance the driver / operators view and proximity detection.

Typical situations for these speciality applications / machinery are: 

Forklifts and Blind Spots

Forklift drivers often have to contend with an impaired view as a result of blind spots around the vehicle, leading to a considerable volume of accidents each year. Many accidents with forklifts involve a collision with a pedestrian. Other accident scenarios include the load falling onto someone, or people in the vicinity of the truck being trapped between the truck and an object / load. Most of these accidents occur because the forklift driver has a poor view of the area surrounding the vehicle. Added to that, forklift drivers are trying to focus on a lot of things at the same time: the load, the height, manoeuvring, etc increasing the risk of an accident.

Load Blocking the View
When a forklift truck is carrying a load, the front area can be completely obscured, which creates a number of blind spots. And it is not only the load on the fork that restricts the driver's view, but also obscured intersections and drive-in points in the warehouse. Fitting cameras to a forklift increases safety by giving the driver a direct view of the floor in front of the truck. Cameras provide a clear view of obstacles and of areas that would otherwise be blind spots, helping to prevent accidents.

Blind Spots around a Forklift
Even without a load on the fork, drivers are often unable to get a clear view of the area in front of the forklift. The bulkhead, the fork carriage, any attachments and the mast with hydraulic hoses and cylinders all obscure the view. A camera gives drivers a better view of their surroundings, which minimises the risk of a collision.

Neck and Back Injury (RSI)
Machine vibration, twisting in the seat, straining the head to attain a view of the load, especially in high stack warehousing of today, all increases the risk of RSI injury to the driver / operator. 

Keeping inside the Machine
Restricted viewing also promotes the driver to extend their body outside the Fork Lift exposing them to the risk of injury. By providing viewing solutions around the machine and on the forks then the driver can sit comfortably inside the ROP's of the machine.

Pallet Positioning
High lift  / stacking is common today and so it is virtually impossible for the driver to accurately locate the Forks into a pallet- least alone replacing the pallet back into the rack. Dropped loads, incorrect positioning, impact on racking are all hazards that are hard ta avoid in a high lift situation. However, providing a view with a Fork Camera attached means that even at heights of 14-16 metres the driver has a clear view of the forks from their cabin entering the pallet when putting it back in position and also when removing the pallet.

Agriculture + Forestry

LSM Technologies SafetyViewDetect® Systems are the Camera Viewing / Proximity Detection solution is excellent for providing work area views on equipment on Harvesters, Logging Trucks, Mulching, Debarking machines, Tractors, etc in the Agricultural and Forestry Industries.

Good visibility is crucial to ensure protection of workers, driver and machine and also reducing product spillage and ensuring maximisation of product recovery with typical situations as:

Rear / Front View

With an LSM SafetyViewDetect® Camera Viewing / Proximity Detection solution on your tractor, trailer or ancillary equipment you can gain a better view (and detection) of the working area to the rear of the vehicle and drive more safely when reversing. The monitor in the Cabin switches automatically to the rearview when reverse gear is engaged. You can also set continuous or manual operation. A rear-view camera also provides a view of the work being performed by the machine and helps when attaching or detaching trailers. A rear-view camera can be fitted to any type of agricultural machinery.

Tool Viewing
When in the Cabin of a machine such as on telehandlers, material handlers or excavators, your view of the tools being used is often limited. This work is often very specific, so tool-view cameras provide optimum visibility for all activities that are out of your direct line of sight. For example, having a view of forks, ploughs, combines, harvester combs, excavator buckets, etc will lead to reduced operating time and substantially increased safety.

Front View
With most machines there is a blind spot are for some metres on the front of large / tall machine that the operator can not see. By implementing LSM SafetyViewDetect® Camera Viewing / Proximity Detection you always have a clear view of what's going on in front of the machine when you are stopped and also operating. A front-end loader on a tractor, for example, blocks your view, making it more difficult to see the area in front of the machine.

Cross View
Cross view is the solution for tractors with large front-end attachments such as front mowers or counterweights. Turning or crossing roads can be very hazardous when using front-end attachments, as the operator has a very limited view or no view at all. 

Process View
Process-view cameras lets you clearly see a multitude of different processes, such as sowing, planting, sprinkling and harvesting all from inside the machine. The monitor in the cab provides a continuous view (of the tipper when harvesting, for example) and promptly shows you when the truck is almost full; this helps you work more efficiently. 

Surround Viewing
Viewing all sides of a machine is also possible with cameras (and proximity detection sensors) around ensure machine that can be automatically switched, so limiting operator interaction and distraction as well as being able to multi- view all the cameras on a single display depicting a virtual 360 degree view around the machine.

ISO 5006 / ISO 1600 Compliance

LSM Technologies SafetyViewDetect® Camera Viewing / Proximity Detection solutions are designed by LSM Engineering team to be complaint to Australian and International Standards.

The  most significant Standards that are now adopted in many other Industrial OH&S Regulator Guidelines and Specification today are the:

  • ISO 5006: Earth-Moving Machinery- Operator's Field Of View- Test Method And Performance Criteria.
  • ISO 16001:Earth-Moving Machinery- Object Detection Systems and Visibility Aids- Performance Requirements And Tests
  • ISO 13766:Earth-moving and building construction machinery-Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) of machines.

Australian and New Zealand are active voting members of the SO 5006 / 16001 and so are party to the mandates and recommendations for correct  implementation of these OH&S Standards .

The ISO 5006 / 16001 for Operator Visibility is the only accepted, recommended & mandatory International Standard associated with mitigating incidents between V2P (Vehicle to Person), V2V (Vehicle to Vehicle) & V2I (Vehicle to Infrastructure) interactions.

The ISO 5006 clearly states: "The purpose of this International Standard is to address operator's visibility in such a manner that the operator can see around the machine to enable proper, effective and safe operation that can be quantified in objective engineering terms".

It does not matter what Industry or application, virtually every type of vehicle or machine has inherent "blind spots" where the Driver / Operator can not see.

Examples are Forklifts, Earthmoving machines, Cranes, Garbage Trucks, Trucks / Trailers, etc and according to the ISO Standards:

  • Where direct visibility is considered inadequate the additional devices such as Cameras (CCTV) for Indirect Visibility must be utilised.
  • Operator visibility is to be provided on a boundary line of 1.0 metre from the smallest rectangle that encompasses the machine at 1.5 metre heights & on a circle of 12.0-metre radius.
  • For larger machines than specified, then the appropriate radius could be up to 24.0 metres or more.
  • Proximity detection devices are Hazard devices for detecting Objects whereas Cameras are viewing devices for detecting people.
  • A Hazard Detection Device can augment a viewing system but should not be used on its own unless there are special circumstances where Viewing Devices can not b used.

What Condition require the ISO5006 / 16001?

HPI's (High Potential Incidents) are a result of Interactions, they occur predominately:

  • At low speeds of 0- 10 kilometres / hour.
  • In situations where there is close proximity.
  • Primarily Rearward travel- no visibility 

What do Camera / Proximity  Detection offer? 

Compliance to the ISO5006 / 16001 offers more than OH&S mitigation!

Safety- Health:

  • Collision Avoidance.
  • Increased awareness- Vision. 
  • Reduction of Driver Fatigue.
  • Reduction of RSI Injuries- Neck / Back Strain.
  • Zero harm of personnel.

Damage Control:

  • Vehicle Damage during operation- loading.
  • Tyre Wear- Damage.
  • Berms & Reversing Incidents.

 Productivity:

  • Increased Fill / Dump Cycles.
  • Increased Loading Times- Eg Excavator- Dump Truck.
  • Enhanced Productivity- with increased Safety.
Discussion Whitepaper

Other aspects in compliance to OH&S in the workplace that can effect Share Value / Investor Returns.  A detailed report completed by CITI GroupSafety Spotlight June 2009, reported that there is a direct link to Companies Share Value and Investor Returns involving OH&S incidents.

Also, it is a legislated OH&S requirement to record, disclose and report HPI’s- not only to relevant Health and Safety Authorities- but also to Investors.

Besides the human effect, substantial costs are involved in OH&S incidents with loss of production, fines, compensation, civil litigation. And even permanent closure of operations / company's and incarceration of up to 30 years under the WHS Act / Chain of Responsibility laws.

When selecting your mitigation control, there is much more to consider and this is where LSM Technologies can assist with ascertaining considerations  in the design such as:

  • Integration of various systems / devices
  • Transfer of the technology between equipment / sites
  • Mixture of differing equipment and its mitigation needs.
  • Education and Training. 
  • Design for fit- for purpose reliability and maintenance.
  • On- going management may require changes, upgrades.
  • ...........and much more.
