Lumber Industry: Advanced Collision Avoidance with SynTec

In the rugged world of lumberyards, ensuring your team’s safety is crucial for efficient and successful operations. This industry faces unique challenges, requiring solutions that safeguard your crew and streamline workflows.

Enter SynTech and HIT-NOT®. With HIT-NOT®, accidents are prevented before they occur, making it an invaluable tool in the lumber and logging sector. This reliable and consistent collision avoidance system offers an additional layer of security, protecting your most important asset: your team.

Fatality Rate

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that the logging and lumber industry have a fatality rate that is 21 times higher than the overall fatality rate in the US.

While the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is everyone’s responsibility, additional safety solutions can warn workers if they are too close to a forklift, detect a lone worker who is down, and provide smart cameras for surveillance or monitoring. 

How Injuries Happen in the Lumber Industry

  • Hits by falling objects: Unpredictable and common, these accidents can be significantly reduced with proper surveillance and detection systems.
  • Injuries by machinery: The backbone of lumber processing is machinery, which poses significant risks without proper safety measures.
  • Slips and falls: Uneven terrain and outdoor conditions contribute to these accidents, which can be mitigated with vigilant monitoring.
  • Repetitive motion injuries: Long-term physical harm can be avoided with ergonomic solutions and proper equipment.
  • Lack of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): Ensuring all workers are properly equipped can prevent many injuries.
