CLEMSON, S.C., Feb. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Modjoul Inc., a data invention and modeling startup, recently developed an analytics solution to measure indoor forklift driver safety by tracking driver actions and identifying risky behaviors that could lead to safety incidents. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, forklift accidents cause nearly 100 worker deaths, contribute to 35,000 serious injuries and cost businesses $135 million in property damages and personal injuries each year. The integration of these additional analytics enables Modjoul's customers to monitor forklift motions, including aggressive actions like sudden accelerations, hard breaking, and sharp turns, and take steps to promote safer behaviors among their drivers.
"With the development of new analytics to measure safety metrics of forklift drivers, Modjoul is poised to dramatically change the safety of blue-collar workers," said Eric Martinez, CEO of Modjoul.
"Modjoul's SmartBelt, when applied to powered industrial vehicles, goes even further to keep workers smarter, safer, and more productive. We're excited about their latest development and their continued efforts to keep workers safe," said Rob Loose, Safety Director of MAU Workforce Solutions.
Modjoul's wearable technology, a low-profile SmartBelt, is used to provide insight into employee safety and how employees perform at work. The SmartBelt can be easily incorporated into part of an employee's uniform and uses sensors to gather data, such as walking, bending, twisting, driving and more.
