Forklift Tricolor Rear Light
Safety lights on forklifts help increase visibility in dimly lit work areas. They’re not required by OSHA but can support safe practices in certain operations.
These LED warning lights project a bright blue beam of light in front or behind your forklift to warn pedestrians. They also help to establish a clearly visible boundary on warehouse floors that other forklifts should never cross.
Red Zone Safety Lights
40% of all forklift accidents involve a pedestrian. Ensure pedestrians stay a safe distance away from your forklift by using our Red Zone Safety Lights. These lights project a bright red line on the ground around your forklift to show pedestrians a NO GO ZONE zone, adjusted to your preferred distance. This helps prevent foot injuries and collisions from rear end swing, as well as showing pedestrians a clear NO GO AREA around any piece of mobile equipment.
These lights were designed to be primarily utilized indoors and can be used on any forklift, including sit downs, stand ups or tuggers. They are weatherproof, but can be difficult to see outdoors on sunny days. If you plan to use these lights on man up forklifts, like order pickers or turret trucks it is recommended that you purchase a set to try first before ordering for your fleet to ensure they will work at the required heights.
These lights mount directly to the forklift’s overhead guard and are secured with a tool free bracket. Once they are mounted, a qualified maintenance person or forklift technician can wire them into the forklift’s power. They can be powered by Forklift Tricolor Rear Light the vehicle’s power supply so they remain on all the time the forklift is in operation. They offer 18 field selectable flash patterns and 2 timing phases for maximum visibility and impact.
Red Spotter Lights
The red spotter lights illuminate a bright warning light on each side of the forklift, indicating an area where pedestrians should not enter. They are especially useful in noisy environments where blind intersections can occur and help to prevent collisions between forklifts and pedestrians. Spotter lights are not required by OSHA but are a helpful safety tool in many different applications. Operators should check that these safety lights are functioning properly at the beginning of every shift. Incorporate “inspect safety lights” into the pre-shift inspection checklist and train your operators to perform this task.
In addition to the red zone safety light, some forklifts are equipped with blue pedestrian spotlights or red side pedestrian lights. These optional pieces of equipment are helpful in some environments where pedestrians are often encountered, such as noisy or cluttered warehouses or when the forklift operator has to drive into blind intersections. Blue and red lights help to communicate an occupied or danger zone around the forklift and can lower the risk of pedestrian-forklift collisions and rear end swing accidents.
Brake/tail lights are another forklift safety light that is usually mounted on the back of the vehicle to indicate when the forklift is in use or stopped. They are not required by OSHA, but are useful in certain operations to help increase safety for pedestrians.
Blue Spotlights are a simple safety solution that mount on the front or rear of your forklift to help alert pedestrians and other forklift drivers of the truck’s approach. These lights shine a bright blue spot 15 to 20 feet ahead of the forklift to give people time to get out of the way. This is not a replacement for safe operating practices but it has been shown to significantly reduce accidents and serious injuries.
We offer a very popular forklift blue light that is easy to mount and contains everything you need, including the light, mounting brackets, J-bolt, clamps, fuse block and installation cables. These lights come with a lifetime warranty and are rated for industrial use. Other blue lights on the market may look cheaper, but often do not include all of the necessary materials.
These safety lights work best when mounted on the rear of the forklift, since most accidents happen while reversing. In noisy warehouses, warning sounds can be drowned out and a visual warning is a great supplement to existing safety measures. The forklift spot lights should be included on your forklift pre-shift inspection checklist and inspected regularly to ensure that they are functioning correctly. You should also instruct your operators to keep them at least 10’ away from pedestrians, and to always watch for other trucks when backing up.
Strobe lights and blue pedestrian spotlights on forklifts are not required by OSHA but can be useful equipment for supporting safe practices in some operations. They serve to notify those behind the vehicle that a forklift is starting or changing speeds, and may help prevent collisions with other vehicles or pedestrians in blind intersections.
Tail and brake lights on forklifts tractor light manufacturers are a vital part of the safety system, but they’re often overlooked when considering options for improving overall facility lighting. Some operators may not realize the importance of having these working properly until they encounter a situation where their brakes aren’t functioning, which can be very dangerous in busy workplaces.
LED brake and tail lights switch on to full brightness very quickly, allowing the driver to recognize them more easily than a traditional bulb. These lights also use less power, making them more environmentally friendly. A programmable feature makes these lights easy to maintain and can reduce downtime for repairs. You can easily change the settings on the lights using a mobile app that makes it easy for even non-technical users to do. This allows the lights to be customized for your workplace to improve visibility in all conditions, day or night.
