J.W. Speaker Lighting Solutions for Klüber Lubrication

With more than 90 years of experience and 2 300 employees worldwide, Klüber Lubrication has established the reputation as the leading speciality lubricants supplier worldwide. Klüber Lubrication offers tribological solutions by supplying tailor-made speciality lubricants directly to customers. At the core of their business is speciality lubricants for initial fill.

Klüber Lubrication’s business practices are governed by their Guiding Principles and Code of Conduct. One such principle entails “our employees are our strength” and encompasses the belief that “highly motivated employees working in an optimised environment are a vital prerequisite of the quality of our products and services.”

During operation, Klüber Lubrication develops and manufactures approximately 2 000 different speciality lubricants. Offering products at this magnitude require the use of reliable machinery such as forklifts to ensure the efficient lifting and transporting of heavy materials.

The importance of forklift visibility cannot be stressed enough. Forklift lighting is the added safety precaution to help both your operators as well as working employees on the floor – especially in poorly lit work environments.

According to the OSHA regulation 1910.178(h)(2), “when general lighting is less than 2 lumens per square foot, auxiliary light shall be provided on the forklift.” In other words, if you have poor lighting, operate outdoors or at night, you need headlights.
With this in mind, the forward-thinking team, together with FloSolve, fitted the Model 793 red zone lights and Model 770 blue spotlights to all division forklifts, as specified by headquarters based in Munich, Germany. One set of lights were fitted to a 2011 Linde H18D03 diesel forklift, whilst the other was fitted to a Linde Electric Reach Truck.

The objective of the installation was to ensure compliance with Health and Safety Regulations, as well as safeguarding employees against the dangerous hazards accompanied with forklifts and reach trucks.

Workshop workers are often surrounded by noise and loud machinery and tend to wear earplugs whilst performing their duties – obstructing one or more of their senses.

This necessitates the need to equip machinery with adequate visual aids which will in turn create a safer working environment.

J.W. Speaker Forklift Lighting

High visibility around the clock can save an operator’s life.

  • The Model 770 BLU can be mounted to both the front and back of the forklift to project a bright, highly concentrated beam pattern on the ground in the direction that the forklift is moving. Model 770 is available in blue or red, as studies have shown that they are the most noticeable colours to the human eye.
  • The Model 793 is mounted on the sides of the forklift and can also be mounted on the rear and / or front to create a complete zone. It projects a red “keep out” safety zone to warn workers to stay out of the turning radius of the vehicle. With superior intensity and light quality, the Model 793 can increase safety, helping employees and pedestrians onsite feel safe and comfortable.

It is evident that proper lighting enhances safety and productivity and may affect product loss and damages. The cost should never be the deciding factor. You stand to lose a lot more when you do not invest enough.
