Protecting the workforce from collisions with construction plant.
In 2016/2017, a total of 137 workers were killed at work and an estimated 609,000 workers suffered non-fatal injuries as a result of work activity. A high percentage of these injuries were caused by moving vehicles/objects, contact with moving machinery. These figures remain similar year on year despite better safety knowledge.
Health and Safety is paramount in every working environment, particular where industrial vehicles, plant, machinery and personnel are in close proximity to each other. Personnel Safety Shield protects the workforce by alerting them when danger is in proximity of personnel.
Personnel Safety Shield utilises unique state of the art intelligent cameras to detect the presence of personnel within a pre-set distance of the plant vehicle.
About the system
Many common accidents occur when industrial vehicles strike unseen personnel’s. This is where the Personnel Safety Shield comes into place. The Personnel Safety Shield is the world’s most advanced collision avoidance system available for plant in the construction industry. The system has been developed to meet the demanding needs of plant operators within the construction industry which combines a variety of cutting edge technologies to provide them with the ultimate protection and monitoring aid.
Unlike other systems currently available that detect all objects within range, the Personnel Safety Shield has been designed to detect pedestrians only and to filter out all other objects that are in the blind spots of the plant operator who are in danger of being hit, thus reducing accidents and driver distraction. The system works with the intelligent cameras installed around the plant vehicle which then alerts the operator and personnel with an alarming beacon on the outside of the plant if danger is detected.
• Detection and Collision avoidance camera system
• Detects pedestrians only
• Full video recording onto SD card
• Includes beacon, keybox, siren
• Optional visual displays
The system is fitted and strategically placed with either 6 or 8 cameras depending on the size of the plant vehicle. The robust camera housing has been designed to withstand all weather conditions that it may encounter making the system hardwearing.
