2 Benefits Of Having A Pedestrian Detection System Installed In Your Warehouse

Posted on

When you own and operate a warehouse, you know that there is always the possibility that the transport vehicles could bump into an employee or run into the property and warehouse goods. Even if you offer extensive operator training, accidents are always a concern, and you may be looking into additional safety systems.

If so, you may want to consider having a pedestrian detection system installed in your warehouse. These sensor-based systems that detect people and objects could benefit your company in a couple of ways, as discussed below.

1.  Helps to Reduce the Risks of Injuries and Damage to Warehouse Equipment and Goods

One of the major benefits of installing a detection system in your warehouse is that it helps to reduce injuries and property damage. Normally, when a worker is operating a small forklift or other transport vehicles inside the warehouse, they are solely responsible for making sure no one and no object is in their path.

However, with the system in place, the worker has an extra pair of eyes in the form of sensors. These sensors help to identify workers or objects that may be out of the drivers' line of sight, giving them a warning as they approach and allowing them to stop the vehicle before a collision occurs.

2.  May Help to Reduce the Cost of Your Company's Liability Insurance Premiums

Another benefit of installing the detection system is that it may help to reduce the amount of money you have to pay for your company's liability insurance premiums. When your business is assessed for the coverage and cost, the insurance company looks at safety features that can help reduce the amount they have to pay out in the case of injury or property damage.

When you install a pedestrian detection system, this is often seen as an extra step that your company is making toward keeping everyone safe. The insurance company may then give you a discount on your premium.

When you have a system in place to detect workers and objects, you lower the risk of employee injuries and damaged goods, leading to a greater chance of having the cost of your liability insurance reduced because of a safer workplace environment.
