the managers of the Taiwanese company visited and exchanged at the BASF Brothers factory in mainland China and learned that through the implementation of the FMS (Forklift Management
System), forklift safety management has achieved remarkable results-
1. Qualification management of forklift operators to ensure that only trained and certified personnel can operate forklifts
2. Checks must be completed before the forklift shift starts, especially to prevent counterfeiting checks
3. Monitor collision events, report abnormal events in time, enhance the operator's sense of responsibility for safety, and greatly reduce collision
4. The work data of personnel and vehicles are obtained in real time, which effectively improves work efficiency
Based on the above considerations, BASF Taiwan has also adopted the Teknect FMS system. The system has been successfully launched for two years and
has also achieved great success. The FMS system has become an indispensable daily management tool for local managers.
