Proximity alert systems for forklifts enhance workplace safety by detecting the presence of pedestrians or objects in the vicinity of forklifts. These systems use low-frequency magnetic fields or other proximity sensors to create a detection zone around the forklift. When a pedestrian or object enters this zone, the system triggers alarms or warnings to alert the forklift operator and nearby pedestrians, reducing the risk of accidents and collisions. Proximity alert systems are crucial in preventing accidents, protecting workers, and promoting a safer work environment where forklifts are commonly used in industrial settings.
