Linde Material Handling Safety Solutions

Optimum Protection for the Operator, Goods and Business Operations

Safety in the warehouse or production environment is the number one priority in intralogistics. With ever-increasing demands on material handling, it is essential to have reliable measures in place to protect drivers and employees, as well as the goods being transported, the racking and any other equipment. With this in mind, we are always developing technical innovations in our industrial trucks, as well as intelligent assistance systems, comprehensive training programs, and consulting services.

Linde Material Handling has one clear goal: Avoid 100% of accidents in intralogistics. This is the driving force behind “Vision Zero” — a safety philosophy with the aim of increasing safety in internal transportation, as well as preventing forklift accidents and other incidents when handling goods.

The result? Integrated solutions which help companies master the diverse challenges of modern, safe intralogistics. Learn more about our safety solutions below.

Safety comes as standard with Linde

Forklift trucks and warehouse trucks from Linde Material Handling are fitted as standard with numerous features which increase both active and passive safety in the warehouse, thus preventing forklift accidents.

Contour of the truck

The operator compartment is designed so that their entire body stays within the contours of the truck, while at the same time allowing them to keep an eye on their surrounding environment. With all trucks, Linde attaches great importance to clear visibility for the operator.

Reliable load handling

A key performance feature of Linde forklift trucks is the safe handling of heavy loads. For example, the overhead tilt cylinders on the electric and IC trucks are attached to the rear of the stable roof and frame structure. The longer lever length makes the mast even more stable and results in less swinging when stacking at high lifting heights. This allows the operator to work more precisely, quickly and – above all – more safely. The design also features slimmer mast profiles, which improves visibility.

Fatigue-free working

With ergonomic working conditions, Linde Material Handling ensures that operators can work safely and without becoming fatigued. Ergonomic working conditions are a central requirement for fatigue-free and therefore safe working. Linde attaches great importance to giving employees the best possible protection from harmful vibrations and jolts. Decoupled drive and steering axles and decoupled operator workstations are effective technology solutions that ensure maximum operating comfort in Linde industrial trucks, thus improving the operator's concentration.
