Shutdown solution lifts safe forklift handling in prison

Smart technology specialist RCT in Brisbane has worked with Toyota Material Handling Australia (TMHA) to customise a Toyota 8FG25 Forklift that provides appropriate and supervised control of forklift operations within a prison on the east coast of Australia. RCT technicians designed a technology package consisting of a ControlMaster remote shutdown solution installed on the forklift and linked to a handheld transmitter. The system is designed so that the site supervisor must use the handheld transmitter to engage the forklift, after which trained and certified machine operators can use the forklift. The technology package is designed to automatically shut down the forklift if it is more than 200 metres away from the handheld transmitter or if any part of the solution is interfered with.

RCT Account Manager (Industrial) Nicholas Noorman said the project ensures all machine operators can use the forklift in an appropriate and safe manner in line with prison guidelines. “We have received very positive feedback from prison authorities and from THMA and look forward to providing ongoing technical support in the future,” Noorman said. “This technology package can quite easily be applied to other scenarios, such as forklift driver training courses, to better equip and supervise a workforce.” The solution is another addition to the RCT industrial product range, which includes fleet management systems, safety products and electrical spare parts.
