Architectural Solution for Forklift Safety

Today, architects and facility engineers are focused not only on the structural integrity of warehouses and loading facilities, but on creating a foundation for operational safety.

Buzzwords like Six Sigma and 5S represent a change in operational philosophy, and Herwin Safety, Inc. is at the forefront in working with architects to provide the best in guardrail safety systems.

  • Six Sigma. Removing the cause of defects and errors includes preventing a forklift from crashing into a CNC milling station or damaging stock ready for shipment.
  • 5S. Maintaining a visual workplace includes clear channels of product flow through your warehouse and shop environment. Highly visible, safety yellow, powder coated guardrail aids in providing visual as well as physical barriers.
