Red LED Pedestrian Warning Light
Many responsible company’s incorporate safety into their work culture to promote a safer working environment. Statistics show that thousands of workers are killed every year while on their job with 7.3 percent of these deaths as a result of getting caught in between machinery hence more and more industries are putting measures to prevent injuries to their workers as well as pedestrians. Most industries heavily rely on forklifts in their delivery bays or warehouses. These machines help to move and lift heavy loads in an industrial setting or workplace but they can also be extremely dangerous to employees and pedestrians. Application of a forklift red LED pedestrian warning light is therefore necessary to prevent accidents in the workplace. Here are the benefits of Installing Forklift Red LED Pedestrian Warning Lights.
Captures The Attention Of Pedestrians Easily
Most accidents at the workplace occur due to preoccupied people but the red LED pedestrian warning light is easily noticeable even when one is distracted. They project a bright red light on the floor designed to create a “cushion of safety” on the floor thus alerting pedestrians and other material handlers to stay clear of the forklift.

Creates a Visual Border
The red LED pedestrian warning lights mounted on a forklift help to create a cushion of safety or a visual border between the forklift and pedestrians by projecting an adjustable red line spotlight that warns pedestrians against standing inside the unsafe zone or perimeter. A forklift is heavy and has a large turning radius which means that it can easily run into pedestrians or employees who are standing too close to it. The visual red beam helps keep pedestrians away creating a “cushion of safety” thus preventing foot injury or collision from rear end swing by maintaining a two to five feet distance from the forklift.
Easy To Install
Installation of the red LED pedestrian warning light is very simple and does not take a lot of time. These lights come with an easy mount bracket that can be used to mount them securely on forklifts without drilling into the overhead guard which may reduce its capacity. The red LED pedestrian safety lights can be mounted to the sides of the forklift as well as on the rear and/or front. To Create a “Cushion of Safety” and protect your employees one Red LED Pedestrian Warning Light is needed for each side of the forklift.
For maximum safety it is recommended that a red LED spotlight is also installed in the front while a blue LED light is also installed in the back or vise-versa so that when the forklift moves in one direction, the relevant light is turned on which helps people easily identify the direction in which the forklift is moving. It is important to keep consistency to avoid dangerous assumptions. The red LED warning lights can also be mounted on scissor lifts, boom lifts, sweepers, tow tractors among other industrial equipment.
The red LED pedestrian warning lights comes with an extremely durable aluminium housing and a 304 stainless steel bracket therefore they are very sturdy and capable of withstanding any amount of shock and vibration. These lights are waterproof and do not have any fragile components such as glass envelopes that are found in some types of lighting sources. The lights are also UL rated for regular types of forklifts as well as LPS and EE forklifts with the exception of EX rated forklifts.
