The Complete Guide to Red & Blue Forklift Safety Lighting
March 20, 2023
If you’re working with forklifts, then you know how safety is of the highest importance — there is a 90% likelihood of a forklift being involved in a fatal accident! When you include that forklifts cause around 85 deaths and tens of thousands of accidents every year, it’s no wonder you’re looking for some solutions to your safety concerns!
One of the best points of protection is proper marking and safety blue and red lights, and here at SharpEagle, we have it all. Let’s talk about what options exist when it comes to safety lights!
How Red And Blue Forklift Safety Lights Contribute To Safety
Before we look into the options that we present to you, let’s first see how blue and red forklift lights add to the overall safety of facilities.
Blue Forklift Lights
Forklift blue lights are used attached to the front and the back of your forklift. They emit a bright blue light that’s visible about 10 to 20 feet from the forklift and moves along with it letting everyone know where to and how fast the vehicle is moving.
When you’re driving in reverse, these lights are great to warn pedestrians and other drivers, even if you cannot see them behind. As it’s often hard to see what’s in front of you, blue safety lights are great to warn everyone to get out of the way.
Red Forklift Lights
Forklift red forklift lights are often attached to the sides of the vehicle and indicate a safe distance everyone should take. The red line they emit is also known as a halo zone and marks a two to five feet boundary no one should cross. This distance can be adjusted by angling the light according to your facility space situation.
By installing blue and red safety lights you will keep pedestrians safe, but you’ll also seriously cut down on the number of accidents with other machines handling load in your facility. Now let’s see what options can you find with Sharp Eagle!
