  • UniCarriers has developed the new Driver Presence Sensor® (DPS) – an ergonomic alternative to the dead man’s switch on order picking trucks.  The DPS covers the truck’s entire working platform – improving both operator ergonomics and safety. Trucks are activated ready to operate as soon as the sensor technology detects the driver’s presence based on their weight. 20kg will activate the truck, consequently there is no longer a need for a dead man’s switch with a fixed position, which limits the machine driver’s freedom of movement. This new technology is fitted to models in the new EP generation of UniCarriers order pickers.

    All industrial trucks are required to feature a dead man’s device for safety reasons. Such devices normally consist of a hand or foot switch which the operator needs to activate to put the machine into operation. Upon exiting the truck either deliberately or accidentally, it comes to a quick stop. As a consequence, operators on order pickers with a wide working platform need to stand in the same place at all times to activate the dead man’s switch. This restricts freedom of movement and leads to an unergonomic posture. Negative effects may include pain or muscle tension. In extreme cases, repetitive strain injury (RSI) syndrome may occur, causing discomfort due to repetitive tasks. With DPS, UniCarriers has developed an ergonomic alternative to the dead man’s switch to prevent such injuries. The order picker’s floor is equipped with sensors covering a large central area, which uses weight to detect whether an operator is present. The driver can therefore adopt a comfortable posture on the working platform without needing to think about where the dead man’s device is located. The sensor is activated regardless of the direction that the machine is moving in. “The DPS enables us to unite greater operator safety with optimum ergonomic design. The sensor technology allows trucks to be easily used on a daily basis and complements the extensive equipment features on UniCarriers machines,” affirms Tony Boynton, Group Product Manager VNA, BCO & Logistics Analyser at UniCarriers. The ergonomic configuration is also enhanced by the soft cushioned floor. Its smooth, flat design also ensures there are no tripping hazards when the driver moves around the cab.

    Extra safety check

    The DPS is automatically activated as soon as an operator boards the order picker and enters a valid PIN in the truck computer. The registration is necessary to prevent unauthorised use of the machine. The floor sensor needs to be calibrated on a daily basis to prevent any incorrect functioning. The driver merely needs to move their feet from the platform edge to the centre to verify correct functioning. If this safety check fails, the machine cannot be put into operation. A high level of standardisation means the new safety system is suitable for all types of order pickers. It will first be put into use on new models in the UniCarriers EP series of order pickers.

  • Following on from the International Material Handling Exhibition (IMHX) 2016 which took place in September, RTITB takes a look back at their International Operator of the Year 2016 heats final with live footage.

    RTITB Managing Director, Laura Nelson, highlights the increasing importance of this competition – which for the first time invited operators from all over the world – in promoting safe and efficient lift truck operation within our industry. There is often the misconception that conscientious operators are slow and therefore inefficient, but as Nelson notes in this showcase, the industry needs more operators like this to help reduce workplace incidents and improve safety which will actually work towards a more efficient workplace.

    This years’ competition was also a stark reminder of the diversity of our industry, as the first ever female operators earned places in the Grand Final. Amongst the 12 Grand Finalists, RTITB also welcomed their youngest ever contestant, at aged 18, who also qualified for the Grand Final.

    Watch snippets from some of this years’ heats and hear from some of the competition sponsors as to why they feel this competition is crucial to maintaining the safety within the industry – no matter where in the world you may be located.

    Some of the industry’s best lift truck operators, employers and training organisations came together on 15th September to see two more Grand Finalists selected in the day three heats of the RTITB International Forklift Operator of the Year.

    At the end of the day, Emily White of System Training was announced as the overall winner of the heat by John Clements, Business Development Manager & Counterbalance Product Manager for UniCarriers. With the next best score, Matthew Vassallo of Hasbro was declared as runner-up. Both contestants will move forward to the Grand Final of the competition in early 2017.

    Held at the International Materials Handling Exhibition (IMHX) at the NEC, Birmingham, the ten competitors in heat three had beaten hundreds of applicants from three continents in order to win the chance to compete. Partnered by McCue and UniCarriers, the competition is now in its fourth cycle, with this year’s event marking RTITB’s first international competition.

    During the heats, each competitor was required to complete four assessments – two practical tests (sponsored by DOLAV, Racking & Storage Solutions and Pyroban), a test of the forklift drivers knowledge (sponsored by Transaid), and successful completion of a pre-use inspection (sponsored by TruckLOG). RTITB judges – Nick Welch, Simon Richards, Simon Docherty and Matt Orin – carefully observed and marked the 10 forklift operators, with the driver with the lowest total score being declared the winner.

    The last round of heats take place on Friday 16th September where two winners will once again qualify for the next stage of the competition.  In addition, following this final heat, RTITB will announce which two operators who did not earn a place in their individual heat, but have the next best scores, have also earned a place in the Grand Final.

    The competition, which this year is proudly supported by B & B Attachments, FSDF, UKWA, BACA Workwear & Safety, has been devised by RTITB to acknowledge the hard work and dedication placed by safe and efficient operators throughout the industry, and instil the message of safety to employers across a wide range of industries. One of the most crucial aspects of the four assessments completed by competitors in the heats is the pre-use inspection, and RTITB hope that the competition will help to raise awareness of this vital daily check.

    According to the Health & Safety Executive, over 18% of workplace incidents occur as a result of mechanical failure which could be avoided through completion of a pre-use inspection. Furthermore, a pre-use inspection will help to reduce the cost of ownership and contact penalties, increase truck uptime, improve battery life and, most importantly, help to prevent incidents and injuries.

    The competition will continue throughout the duration of the IMHX event, ending on Friday 16th September. For further information on the competition, click here or follow on Twitter (@opofyear) or Facebook – RTITB Operator of the Year Competition. Visit stand 9A40 to watch the heats in action.

  • Aff-01s a potential future shortage of LGV drivers threatens the UK’s logistics industry and economy, could engaging women and young people in logistics careers avert this skills shortage?

    “It is reported that 1 in 12 people in the UK work in a logistics role, but only a small proportion of these are women or young people,” says Laura Nelson, Managing Director of RTITB, the leading workplace transport training regulatory body. “Most HGV drivers are male and the average age is 51, so attracting young people and women into the logistics industry is critical as they approach retirement.”

    The logistics industry is a diverse and exciting sector with a wide range of careers available including drivers, warehouse operators, planners, accountants and management roles.

    “I understand that the industry will need in excess of 450,000 new people over next 5 years giving young people and women some amazing opportunities,” says Laura. “Encouragingly there are some signs of change already – at this year’s International Forklift Operator of the Year competition, there are more female operators through to the final than ever before, along with the youngest ever entrants at just 18 years old.”

    UK organisation Women in Logistics is working to get the message across to female jobseekers that, for example, compared with hair and beauty, there is a staggering ten times as many jobs available in logistics.

    Ruth Waring FCILT, Founder of Women in Logistics UK, said “Careers in logistics are interesting and rewarding for women and we’re encouraging employers to look at female potential when recruiting, as well as encouraging female applicants to think about logistics as a career at all entry levels”.

    “The environment, technology and physical requirements of the logistics industry have changed so much,” says Laura. “Women and young people can become exceptional HGV drivers or forklift operators, proven at this year’s International Forklift Operator of the Year.”

    At the International Materials Handling Exhibition from 13th – 16th September at the NEC, Birmingham, 40 of the top forklift drivers will battle it out for a spot in the Grand Finals of the competition. In these heats, the skilled drivers will have to complete a series of assessments specially designed to test their skills and knowledge of safe forklift operation in front of industry specialists and professionals.

    “There are over 2 million jobs in logistics which we believe have largely been overlooked by women and young people,” says Laura. “I hope the competition helps raise awareness of these opportunities and that it is a sign that we will start to see more young people and women taking the logistics industry into the future.”

  • RWP-0201With the International Materials Handling Exhibition (IMHX) 2016 just one week away, RTITB and 40 of the best forklift operators in the world are counting down the days until the thrilling heats of the International Forklift Operator of the Year award begin.

    The live heats, partnered with UniCarrier and McCue, will take place at stand 9A40 at IMHX from 13th – 16th September 2016 at the NEC, Birmingham, UK. The top 40 forklift drivers will battle it out for a spot in the Grand Finals, where 40 become 10 as they prove that they are the best in the world. In the heats, the skilled drivers will have to complete a series of assessments, sponsored by TruckLOG, Dolav, Racking & Storage Solutions, Transaid and Pyroban, which are specially designed to test their skills and knowledge of safe forklift operation in front of industry specialists and professionals.

    Among the competitors this year are a number of forklift operators from well-known, international companies, the youngest ever heat finalists aged just 18, and more female operators at this stage of the competition than ever before. Also taking part in the internationally renowned contest will be a forklift driver from the US, and the winner of the Indian Forklift Operator of the Year 2015.

    “The International Forklift Operator of the Year award is about recognising the best of best and showing supply chain professionals that skilled, safe, efficient forklift operators can make a huge difference to productivity and profitability within their company,” says Laura Nelson, Managing Director at RTITB. “We’re excited to have a wide range of drivers of all ages and from all around the world competing in this year’s heats at IMHX.”

    “The forklift drivers will be taking part in a series of live challenges that we’ve specially designed to test their skills, knowledge and safe operation,” says Laura Nelson, Managing Director of RTITB, the preferred workplace transport training body. “We encourage visitors to IMHX to visit the competition zone to be part of the action and support the drivers as they take on each exciting challenge.”

    ‘The Fun Factory’ operating test, sponsored by Racking and Storage Solutions Ltd and Dolav UK Ltd, will see competitors skilfully drive a UniCarriers Counterbalance ET truck. Fitted with a rotating fork clamp by B&B attachments, drivers will need to move a laden box pallet safely without spilling any of the contents, within the time limit.

    The ‘Bicycle Bingo’ theory test is themed around charity partner Transaid’s successful fundraising cycle rides and will test the competitors’ knowledge of issues affecting stability and safe lift truck operation, while in the Perfect Pre-use test, competitors will use a lift truck fitted with a TruckLOG TK5 system to conduct a full, correct pre-use inspection and determine if the truck is safe for use.

    Another operating challenge, the ‘Explosive Mixer’, will test the skills needed for forklift operation in, or near to, a potentially explosive environment. Using a UniCarriers forklift fitted with added safety system Gascheka duo™ from Pyroban, contestants will have to manoeuvre a barrel through the ‘whiskey distillery’ without risking an ‘explosion’.

    All of the tests are protected by McCue FlexCore pedestrian safety barriers and will see drivers using personal protective equipment from BACA Workwear and Safety. In addition to the support of manufacturing partner UniCarriers and the different test partners, the 2016 competition is also supported by UKWA, FSDF and BITA in recognition of its contribution to improving safety in the workplace.

    IMHX visitors can head to the competition zone to watch forklift operators battle for their place in the Top 10 and the Grand Final, and can visit the competition zone at 3:30pm on each day of the contest for the announcement of that day’s winners. There will also be chances to find out about running an in-house forklift driver competition with the support and partnership of RTITB, and to hear the latest updates on RTITB’s new international awards for people, talent and training in logistics.

    In addition to the all the action of International Forklift Operator of the Year, guests at IMHX can also visit stand 9A20 to learn more about RTITB’s workplace transport training solutions that can improve efficiency and safety in business. The expert RTITB team will be available to discuss the in-house and outsourced LGV training solutions available to employers nationwide and how this can improve safety, maximise efficiency and reduce operational costs.
