Material Handling Safety Equipment

Innovations in forklift safety equipment technology have produced effective solutions that help protect workers. These new inventions include safety devices with cameras that can differentiate between pedestrians and objects while workers operate lift trucks. Many of these systems use algorithms to alert the forklift operator of potential hazards in the vicinity.

At Holt of California, we understand the importance of employee safety. Reducing the risk of injury and collisions in the workplace can save lives and protect your employees’ well-being. That’s why we offer several forklift equipment safety products to help you safeguard your workers.
