Scenario Chosen is design scenario A "Forklift Truck Safety System"
I have indentified a need that there is nominally a high rising "accident" rate which involves forklift trucks, with injuries and fatalities occurring to other workers and members of public who are in the area of the forklift truck whilst in use. I have chosen to design a product that could be fitted, to a forklift truck, which will improve safety and reduce "accidents" whilst a forklift truck is in use.
Resulting in taking all of the above into account my single phrase function statement being "prevent accidents" however, theirs already methods, procedures and regulations in place to try and prevent "accidents" such as regulated speed limits, sufficient training in using a forklift truck and warning fixtures such as a drivers horn, hazard light. If an accident was to occur in most cases it will be blamed as an operators fault even if the safety scheme was in place.
Employer areas of using forklift trucks, which are also known, to cause accidents.
> Lack of training or improper training of employees who operate forklift trucks.
