Ergonomic Principles of Forklift Design New York

An aching back, strained muscles, and stiff joints are just a few symptoms of fatigue a forklift operator might accumulate in a day of sitting or standing, wrestling a steering wheel, operating hydraulic controls, and climbing on and off the forklift. That's why forklift designers in New York are taking ergonomics principles more seriously than ever.

An aching back, strained muscles, and stiff joints are just a few symptoms of fatigue a forklift operator might accumulate in a day of sitting or standing, wrestling a steering wheel, operating hydraulic controls, and climbing on and off the forklift. And because materials handling productivity is not only a function of the machine, but also of the operator, when the body starts to slow, load-moving efficiency can decline.

That's why ergonomics has become a more prominent focus in forklift design, with manufacturers developing more features that aim to increase comfort and reduce operator fatigue. “Making the truck comfortable for the operator is very important for two reasons: to make him more comfortable and to make him more productive for the company owners,” says Geoff Beale, sales director for forklift manufacturer Hyster USA.
