One quarter of all workplace deaths are caused by reversing vehicles according to the Health & Safety Executive (HSE). Many others result in injury and costly damage to vehicles, equipment, and buildings.
Despite this many operators still fail to fit simple and yet relatively inexpensive reversing alarms.
With the advent of the Corporate Manslaughter Act, there has never been a greater legal necessity to carry out effective risk assessments of reversing processes.
Tonal backup alarms can be installed in heavy, medium, and light duty vehicles to warn people that they’re in the path of the vehicle as it is moving backwards.
