According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)'s website, fall injuries are one of the top 5 injuries in warehousing and manufacturing environments – Slippery or wet areas are common on the floors of many warehouses. There are often dissimilar flooring surfaces or uneven floors.  The accumulation of debris, empty containers, pallets or even excess inventory can also create tripping hazards. The poor lighting in many warehouses can make it difficult for employees to avoid obstacles. All of these factors result in many warehouse workers falling on the same level. Workers can also fall off ladders, loading docks and other elevated areas.

Moving the process of information capture into the air provides on demand checks and avoids the time, expense, and risk of using a people lift or stairs to access difficult to reach locations within the warehouse.
