Who's Protecting their Reach Truck Operators with The Backbone®?

The names of our customers must remain confidential, but we can share the following information.

Major Automotive Manufacturer Outfits Newly Purchased Reach Trucks with The Backbone®

The customer, a global automotive manufacturer, purchased new reach trucks for the North American warehouses of its customer service and aftermarket department. After conducting a Safety Risk Analysis, the customer determined the need to equip each reach truck with a Backbone at the right rear corner, to protect operators from being struck by racking beams and components that might encroach into the operator compartment.

The reach truck manufacturer opposed the installation, contending that the modification is not warranted by any potential under-shelf or encroachment risk.

The customer petitioned OSHA for a ruling, and we provided the relevant third party, independent research data we had collected.

With OSHA approval, the customer installed The Backbone on its reach trucks.
