Lift Truck Rotated Operator Compartments:An Ergonomic Review

Undertaken as part of a continued effort by AIAG's Industrial Truck Group to reduce operator strain as well as pedestrian incidents associated with reverse driving, this study was initiated to evaluate the ergonomic and visibility benefits from the operator's standpoint.

This involved the trial/demo of four units with rotated operator's compartments and associated features (controls) based on operator feedback. Operator questionnaires and written comments were the input modes for this study.

The resulting White Paper does not attempt to evaluate the overall effectiveness of the trucks, the application limitations, or other factors that may affect the safe operating characteristics of the vehicle.
