Safety Tip of the Week

Safety Tip of the Week

 Obstructed vision is one of the leading causes for forklift accidents. Ask for someone to help you when working in a narrow space. Use predetermined signals to ensure solid communication and safety. Always look right and left before proceeding. If you can’t see, sound your horn to let others know you are coming so they can be out of the way.

Barclay's Stepping Up

Barclay's Stepping Up

Barclay employees are stepping up to a healthy lifestyle by incorporating physical activity into their daily routine. In fact the entire company is taking the 10,000 Step Challenge for National Walk at Lunch Day , Wednesday, April 30th. Barclay employees are dividing into teams and will wear their pedometers to walk it up during the lunch hour. An official representative from 10,000 Steps.org will on hand to monitor the event. The company will provide healthy snacks and treats to the employees. It is important to remember that walking is great physical exercise and no gym fees are required. Daily activity helps with overall health, weight control and aging by reducing many risk factors for cardiac issues, high blood pressure, stress, cancer and diabetes. Barclay employees are stepping up to stomp out these risk factors and enjoy the benefits of increased energy, improved concentration and productivity.

Barclay now has six teams from Red Hot Chili Steppers to Holy Walkamolies.

Here is the link to 10,000 Steps if your company wants to walk at lunch too!

Safety Tip of the Week


 b2ap3_thumbnail_forklift-safety.png

The point of a forklift is to safely move products up or down or across a warehouse facility. Improper loading techniques cannot only damage product but can seriously injure the operator or someone else. Do not use the fork tip as a lever to raise a heavy load or to push a load, and do not use the tilt cylinder to pull a load. This can result in costly damages to the forklift. Use pallets that can stand the weight of the load. Do not use damaged, deformed or decayed pallets and skids.

In Memory of Jim Fostinis

In Memory of Jim Fostinis

We all mourn the passing of our friend and co-worker Jim Fostinis who left us April 10, 2014 at the far too young age of 50.  Many of his Barclay family gathered together yesterday to say goodbye to Jim at his service in Linden, NJ.  We will miss his presence and the major contributions he made over his 32 years as part of our team supporting the technical needs of our customers and as a technical resource supporting our Service Technicians.  We wish his family all the best as they deal with his untimely passing.  Rest in Peace Jim.

Safety Tip of the Week

Safety Tip of the Week

Even if you are traveling at low speed, a piece of debris in your path can cause the load to tip over or the operator to lose control; this can be easily avoided by keeping all pathways clean, and of course paying close attention during forklift operation. Also be sure to properly stack loads on pallets and use prevention measures such as ropes or binders if necessary to ensure load security. It is better to make two safe trips than having an accident with one insecure load.

Safety Tip of the Week

Safety Tip of the Week

Much like a car or truck, forklifts improve efficiency and allow us to move more products quicker. They also require the same easy steps to keep the operator safe. Always remember to fasten your seat belt. A lot of accidents can be avoided with a simple “click!” Also be mindful of your speed and surroundings. Observe the rules of your work site and operate the forklift appropriately.
