Are you one of the many people who would very much like to make our Forklift Industry more efficient; where it is safer for our workers and where it is easier for hard working business people to profit from their endeavors?

Here is the purposeful venture…….

A venture to reduce harm to people and a venture to reduce the cost of facility and product damage.

We know that “you don’t walk away from a forklift accident”

Forklift accidents kill and maim many people around the world daily. The real figures are hidden but it is likely to be more than 100 people per day…Federal OSHA estimates that in the United States alone, there are nearly 100 worker fatalities and another 20,000 seriously injured in forklift-related incidents annually.  .

If you want to confirm the reality, have a look at the enormous workplace accident figures of your country and then see that nearly every week, one or more, close to home, is reported in the News and then look at this diary of accidents in the UK

The real human cost count is quite large and includes, not only those killed or maimed, but also the devastation of families who are left to pick up the pieces; the support infrastructure that is needed, the costs of medical support, the downtime suffered. Add to that the product loss and damage to facilities and on top of that the litigation consequences etc

As well as the “Duty of Care” it is financially prudent to avoid accidents in the workplace. The people we talk to, agree that we cannot keep acknowledging the need and not address the problem. With the technology of this age it would be outrageous not to act. We feel that it is time to make a change and invite you to join us and make this “your venture”.

The need

There is much to do, but in the first instance…..

Forklifts need to be made safer. We need;

  1. to lessen the damage that forklift tynes cause.
  2. to make it easier for operators to see beyond their loads,
  3. to eliminate the cause of pulling loads down upon the operators, and
  4. to protect operators of stand up industrial trucks against accidental rear—ward collisions with racking systems.

At the same time we also need an industry culture change where safe operation of forklifts is the paramount consideration, in our every working moment thoughts and culture at all levels of our industry….much like the growing culture in developed countries for safe roads and safe speeds.

Our people need to know that there is a high and enforced cost for failure to equip, failure to act, failure to lead, failure to train, failure to look and act responsibility. There is a responsibility at every level to make it mandatory to live to these obligations.

Our Plan – The Venture

We have gathered a group of dedicated and influential people together to offer realistic and affordable solutions which will significantly improve the safety of forklifts. We have named these products, the “SUMOSAFE Range of products” and have established inventory of these “SUMOSAFE” products in strategically located warehouses for Third Party Logistics, Internet Fulfillment. The “SUMOSAFE” Range includes;

  1. The SUMOGlove,
  2. The SUMOSafeFork. The SumoGlove is supplied factory fitted to Forklift Tynes (Tines).
  3. The SUMOLevel, and
  4. The SUMOBackbone

We are now growing a Consultants Group and offer an opportunity to people with industry knowledge to earn a good commission type income without the need to hold inventory or take risks and invite you to join this group and influence people in your region to purchase the “SUMOSAFE” range of products.

We are especially looking for Consultants to act on our behalf, in their native language, when we have enquiries from abroad.

We are looking also for respected consultants (perhaps industry elders) who know and can influence the game players in their region. We are asking this group to influence governments, authorities, insurance companies and industry associations to do more than they do at present. We ask Forklift Trainers to keep doing what you do so well, but endorse our venture and insist that this cultural change is timely. We ask Forklift competition (Rodeo) organizers to insist that competition forklifts are fitted with the “SumoSafe Range”.

Would you like to make a difference to the industry you will, one day leave behind?

Join our group of like-minded individuals and companies in a purposeful venture?

and our vision…..

”One day soon we hope to see all companies demanding that every forklift needs to be fitted with the SUMOSAFE range of products.”

The bright yellow SUMOGlove is our flagship icon. It is “The catalyst for change”…the bright yellow SUMOGlove sends out a constant, ever present message that forklifts are dangerous …forklifts need to be seen and operators need to respect the dangers and see beyond  their load.
