Long term Briggs customer, Indespension, required an improvement to their existing on-site safety standards. To help meet this requirement, the Indespension team worked collaboratively with their existing equipment partners, Briggs, to identify the best solution for their requirements. Following site and fleet evaluations, new illuminated vehicle livery and lighting for Indespension’s existing forklift trucks was agreed.
Through a series of distinctive reflective panels fitted to the side and rear of the trucks, the illuminated livery greatly enhances the visibility of Indespension’s forklifts during and post operation. Sections of the panels are also designed to flash and pulse to provide added visual awareness.
In addition to the livery, Indespension also opted for the safety lighting option for their trucks, which projects a bright blue light on the floor to provide pedestrians with a clear warning that a forklift truck is operating in the area. By clearly highlighting the ‘no-go zone’ that surrounds a forklift, the lighting will help prevent injuries and avoid collisions with other vehicles on site.
In partnership with our customers, we are constantly reviewing our equipment and the environments they operate in to assess the potential for any safety improvements. This installation at Indespension is a glowing example of that collaborative approach and we are delighted with the positive impact that these new products are delivering to their business.
Indespension’s Commercial Director, Tony Graham, commented: “We have a fantastic relationship with Briggs Equipment and this installation of illuminated livery and safety lighting is a clear example of our ongoing and pro-active partnership working. At Indespension, we’re committed to providing a safe environment for our staff to operate in and these new products will provide significant benefits to not just our forklift operators but all of our on-site teams.
“Despite the fact they’ve only been operational for a couple of weeks, we’ve already had lots of very positive feedback from our staff and we’re really pleased with both the quality and effectiveness of these products.”
