Forklift Man Cages (Forklift Man Baskets)

Forklift man cages, also known as forklift man baskets, are designed to provide a secure platform for personnel working at height. These cages are equipped with safety features such as non-slip flooring, guardrails, and secure attachment points for harnesses. When selecting a forklift man cage, it's essential to consider factors such as cage dimensions, load capacity, and compatibility with your specific forklift model.


Industrial Safety Helmets

Industrial safety helmets are a crucial component of personal protective equipment (PPE) when working with forklift cages. They protect the wearer from potential head injuries caused by falling objects or contact with overhead structures. It's important to choose safety helmets that meet NZ safety standards and are appropriate for the specific tasks and hazards present in your workplace.


Forklift Cage Safety Harnesses

Forklift cage safety harnesses are designed to secure personnel within the safety cage, preventing falls from height. These harnesses should be comfortable, adjustable, and easy to use, ensuring that workers remain safe and secure throughout their tasks. Ensure that the harnesses you choose meet NZ safety standards and are compatible with your forklift cage.


Webbing Lanyards

Webbing lanyards are used in conjunction with safety harnesses to provide an additional level of fall protection. These lanyards connect the harness to a secure anchor point, such as a forklift cage attachment point. When selecting webbing lanyards, consider factors such as length, strength, and compatibility with your safety harness and forklift cage.

In conclusion, investing in high-quality forklift cages and safety gear is essential for businesses looking to improve safety, compliance, productivity, and overall workplace efficiency.
