Pedestrian safety focus of Raymond series

Steps to Safety looks at material handling issues

02/18/2010


The Raymond Corporation has introduced a new educational program - "Steps To Safety: Pedestrian Safety in a Material Handling Environment". The program assists employers in teaching pedestrians how to act responsibly in environments where lift trucks are operated. The training program, which includes a DVD, presentation materials with an end-of-program review, and a participant handout, can be facilitated by a local Raymond Sales and Service Center representative or by a trainer within a company.
Raymond's Steps To Safety program is uniquely designed to target the pedestrian, rather than the lift truck operator. This information assists the pedestrian in making the right decisions when working in material handling environments. Pedestrians will gain environmental awareness and visual communication skills through segments ranging from "Being a Defensive Pedestrian" to "Thinking on Your Feet." The program also facilitates discussion among participants about site-specific pedestrian requirements and concerns.
"In a warehouse environment, safety is everybody's responsibility. Just as operators have to be trained on how to operate a lift truck in a warehouse, pedestrians need to know how to navigate in a warehouse where lift trucks are being used," says Mike Angelini, manager of dealer and customer education for The Raymond Corporation. "Raymond created this new training resource after listening to our customers who were asking for help in developing employer-based pedestrian training programs."

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
