Access control solutions from Traka

Key and asset management specialist, Traka, say its solutions facilitate greater standards of health and safety, particularly in the manufacturing, retail and distribution markets. They will be exhibiting at Safety & Health Expo 2015 (16-18 June).

According to the company, Traka’s material handling equipment products can control who can get access to, and drive, fork truck vehicles such as High Reach, Counter Balance, LLOPS and Cherry Pickers.

Traka say they will also be demonstrating the benefits of its loading bay solution, DockSafe, explaining that this drive-off prevention system is designed to stop vehicles prematurely leaving the Goods Out bay in busy distribution centres.

When a HGV trailer is decoupled and parked against a loading bay door there is a heightened risk of ‘drive-offs’ whereby the wrong trailer is moved or pulled away from the bay door before the loading operation is complete, explain the firm. They say the DockSafe solution isolates the trailer and is interlocked directly with the relevant dock door control mechanism to ensure a safe working environment is maintained until the loading operation is complete.

Steve Bumphrey, Business Manager for Manufacturing, Retail and Distribution for Traka says: “Our products are known for its security benefits. Our asset and key management systems offer greater accountability and restrict people from accessing sensitive areas of a business. However, our solutions also offer significant benefits for ensuring Health and Safety legislation is adhered to, particularly within the manufacturing, retail and distribution markets.

“The Safety and Health show allows us to demonstrate our capabilities in making workplace environments safer, with minimum disruption.”

Traka will be on stand P2125, where the company’s representatives will be available to discuss ways to cost-effectively ensure compliance with health and safety legislation. Register for the Safety & Health Expo.
