Why RFID Detection?
Keeping site workers safe is a demanding yet necessary task. Often operating in challenging environments, machinery and mobile plant can pose a very real danger to workers if legislation and health and safety procedures are not adhered to. Vehicles and mobile plant frequently operate within close proximity to workers and other machines. Safety is fundamental but driver visibility is often limited due to a vehicle’s shape, size, load and operator position which can create blind spots and make collisions more likely. This is often intensified by a difficult working environment; terrain, noise, weather or low light, for example. Workers may also be wearing ear defenders, restricting their ability to hear machines approaching, which increases the danger. 70% of incidents happen during initial machine start-up and low speed movement because of poor visibility.
